    The Upper Indus Plain It is the region from Attock to Mithankot i.e. most of the areas of Punjab Province. The upper indus plain has a height from m to m. Five big rivers of Punjab drain this plain and cover it with alluvial soils but some dry hills known as “Kirana hills” appear near Sargodha, Chiniot and Sangla. The general slope of the land is from northeast to southwest. Potwar plateau / Salt Range. Western highland. Indus delta / Sindh coast. Below snowline / m Areas with wet climate Irrigated Forests Most by rivers / by indus 6/7 in Punjab / most in Punjab / UIP 1 in lower Sindh / LIP 1 on the border ofPunjab and NWFP / confluence of river Indus and Gomal. Q Pakistan geologically overlaps both with the Indian and the Eurasian tectonic plates where its Sindh and Punjab provinces lie on the north-western corner of the Indian plate while Balochistan and most of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa lie within the Eurasian plate which mainly comprises the Iranian plateau, some parts of the Middle East and Central northern areas and Azad Kashmir lie mainly.

The Salt Range of northern Pakistan represents an emergent thrust front along which the Potwar Plateau has been translated southward.

Based on the analysis of subsurface data, we have constructed a balanced cross-section exhibiting a frontal fault-bend fold and a set of detachment folds below the Potwar by: The Salt Range and Potwar Plateau (denoted SR and PP, respectively, and SR–PP, collectively) are situated in the western foreland of the Himalayan orogen in northern Pakistan ().Neogene subduction of the Indian craton beneath Eurasia caused southward-verging fold-thrust deformation in the SR–PP above a basal detachment within the Neoproterozoic Salt Range Formation (Lillie et al., ).Cited by: 8.

Regional balanced crosssections across the Himalayan foreland in north and west Pakistan show a thin-skinned mechanism of deformation with a weak decollement over the basement. The crosssection across central Salt Range/Potwar Plateau in north Pakistan shows an exposed thrust with about 20 km of shortening at the mountain front.

The central part of Salt Ranges ramp and the decollement level of the Potwar plateau are affected by 4–5 mm/yr slip (Figures ), whereas the western part of the Salt Ranges ramp and the Potwar Plateau thrust are not affected by slip during the time span covered by our episodic measurements.

The structural features of the Potwar Plateau region are dominated by a large southeastward-convex deformation lobe. This lobe includes abundant thin-skinned thrust faults, some strike-slip and normal faults, and many folds. The tectonic setting of the region is along the southern foreland of the Himalayan by: 9.

The Salt Range (Punjabi: سلسلہ کوہ نمک) is a hill system in the Punjab province of Pakistan, deriving its name from its extensive deposits of rock salt. The range extends along the south of the Pothohar Plateau and the North of the Jhelum Salt Range contains the great mines of Khewra, Kalabagh and Warcha which yield vast supplies of t route: M2 motorway (Pakistan).

The Meyal Field is located extensively in northern Pakistan, around 60 km south-southwest of Islamabad, Pakistan [1, 2] ().The region corresponds to the Potwar Basin, enclosed to the south by Salt Range and bounded to the north through Kala Chitta : Muhammad Riaz, Pimentel Nuno, Tehseen Zafar, Shahid Ghazi.

Salt Range, series of hills and low mountains between the valleys of the Indus and Jhelum rivers, located in the northern part of the Punjab region of Pakistan.

It derives its name from extensive deposits of rock salt that form one of the richest salt fields in the world; they are of Precambrian age and range up to more than 1, feet ( m) in thickness.

The tectonic framework of the eastern Potwar region is largely controlled by the Salt Range & Domeli thrusts forward thrust systems, and the Dil-jabba & Domeli backthrusts.

To constrain the 3D geometry of thrusts in the eastern Potwar region, we used the interpretation of data from 3-D and 2-D seismic and a series of structural cross : Muhammad Aamir, Muhammad Maas Siddiqui, Attique-ur Rahman.

Seismic reflection data show that a 1 km offset of the basement acted as a buttress that caused the central Salt Range-Potwar Plateau thrust sheet to ramp to the surface, exposing Mesozoic and Paleozoic strata. Kalabagh: iron ore occurs near Kalabagh in the Surghar Range and near Sakesar in the Salt Range.
