First paragraph of abstract: In the NW-SE trending Zagros Simply Folded Belt, landform organisation is shown to be a straightforward response to tectonic forcing processes using remote sensing. Two end-member fold types (detachment folds and fault-bend folds) interact with streams flowing into the Persian Gulf. Using drainage network analysis and geomorphologic methods, the organisation of emergent landform morphologies is mapped and the distribution of different fold types is inferred.
