Lineament analysis of South Baluchistan region in Iran using sensors of Landsat 8 (Landsat Data Continuity Mission, LDCM)) suggests orgoenic uplift of the region brought about deformation of mesoscopic structures. The lineament fabric showed prominent lineament directions along E-W and NW-SE. The study also revealed that the Alpine Himalayan orogenic uplift has been responsible for the structural fabric of the south Baluchistan. This deformation is documented in the form of reverse and normal faults.
