Map of the Makran region. Red lines are mapped strike- slip faults in SE Iran (Walker and Jackson, 2004; Regard et al., 2005). SSZ is the Sistan Suture Zone and MZP is the Minab-Zendan-Palami fault zone. The red line outlined in white is the trace of the surface ruptures of the 2013 Balochistan (Pakistan) earthquake on the Hoshab fault (Avouac et al., 2014), and the red dot shows the location of the 2013 Minab earthquake. The red outlined region shows the approximate rupture area of the 1945 Mw 8.1 earthquake from Byrne et al. (1992). JM = Jaz Murian depression
