Abstract

The macrozonation and classification studies are carried out for the induced landslides in the imprinted area of the Manjil, Iran earthquake of 20 June 1990, in view point of engineering geology. The earthquake induced landslides are classified in 7 classes and all of them are mapped on the seismotectonic map of the region. Landslides of the historic time are considered as well. These studies showed that the most of large earthquake induced landslides are occurred within the earthquake origin zone of this earthquake and in the area which is specified with the earthquake intensity of more than VII (7) MSK. The earthquake faulting was associated with landslides. The occurrence of landslides was one of the geological-geotechnical diagnostics of the Manjil earthquake, such that they were of the main devastating factors.

Macrozonation of Landslides for the Manjil, Iran 1990 Earthquake

St. Louis, Missouri

The macrozonation and classification studies are carried out for the induced landslides in the imprinted area of the Manjil, Iran earthquake of 20 June 1990, in view point of engineering geology. The earthquake induced landslides are classified in 7 classes and all of them are mapped on the seismotectonic map of the region. Landslides of the historic time are considered as well. These studies showed that the most of large earthquake induced landslides are occurred within the earthquake origin zone of this earthquake and in the area which is specified with the earthquake intensity of more than VII (7) MSK. The earthquake faulting was associated with landslides. The occurrence of landslides was one of the geological-geotechnical diagnostics of the Manjil earthquake, such that they were of the main devastating factors.
