This paper focuses on the Neogene–Quaternary tectonic evolution of the Lake Van Basin at the located in the Turkish -Iranian Plateau. To better understand the complex tectonic history of the region and determine the paleostress patterns, we investigate and report on the geometric, structural, and kinematic characteristics of the Basin based on field observations of fault-slip orientations.

The Quaternary fault and fold data for the United States has relied heavily on the past contributions, and on new efforts by State geological surveys and the U.S. Geological Survey. The most recent effort began in in support of the International Lithosphere . About the Author. Donald K.
