This map was produced by the CGMW Subcommission for the Middle East and compiled by Dr.A. Haghipour of the Geological Survey of Iran, as a contribution to the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction. It covers a particularly sensitive zone of our planet from the seismic point of view. On a geotectonic base, 1,013 major historical earthquakes are plotted, ranging from the 3rd millennium B.C. to 1900 A.D., as well as 3,029 teleseismic events of the 20th century, with a magnitude of 5 and over, and arranged according to magnitude and focal depth.
