Rate of slip from multiple Quaternary dating methods and paleoseismic investigations along the Talas‐Fergana Fault: tectonic implications for the Tien Shan Range

Abstract:

The ~400 km‐long Talas‐Fergana fault (TFF) is one of a series of major right‐lateral strike‐slip faults that cross the Tien Shan Range. This fault has been recognized as active in the late‐Holocene and accommodates part of the deformation induced by the ongoing Indo‐Asian collision. The kinematics and the role of this strike‐slip fault are poorly understood with no large earthquakes reported in the instrumental or historical catalogs, and no well‐constrained geological slip‐rate estimates.
