recent and active tectonics in tehran region and central alborz

[By Shideh]   I received this email from a friend (Mr. Alireza Sarvi) that might be of interest to TehranShake:

 

USGS recently presented an interesting seminar about active tectonics and risk of earthquakes in Tehran region. The slides as well as the complete video are available in their web site now: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/regional/nca/seminars/?year=2008

 

Toward the end of the page, you can access to the seminar with the topic of “Recent and active tectonics in Tehran region and Central Alborz, Iran”, as well its slides and video. It seems that seismic risk in Tehran now gets the attention of well-recognized geological institutes around the world. By the way, from Geophysical point of view, I asked the speaker about the result of micro-seismic activities and the video includes it (from time around 43).
