As for the northern border of the Arabian-Eurasian collision, the Koppet Dagh structural zone has experienced multiple tectonic events. Due to these recent tectonic events, the sedimentary units have been exposed through the folding and faulting processes. Currently, a part of the Koppet Dagh structural zone (between Quchan and Shirvan cities) has been
studied to present the structural model of this study. In the presented structural model, the area is divided into two main A and B (northern and southern) blocks. The results of the study indicate that B Block is tectonically active and is currently uplifting. In addition, the presented evidence has proven recent activities of this block. However, according to the evidence presented by the researchers, it could be assumed that the northern block (A) rose in the past, but now B Block is rising and popping up.
