Byline: Mirza Shahid Baig, Robert S. Yeats, Shahab Pervez, Ishtiaq A.K. Jadoon, Muhammad Rustam Khan, Iqbal Sidiqui, MonaLisa, Muhammad Saleem, Basit Masood, Amer Sohail, Muhammad Saleem Mughal, Malik Jawad Ahmed, Waqar Ahmad Butt, Habib-Ur-Rehman, Haroon Rashid Abbasi, Rashad Khan, Nasar Abbas and Muhammad Nadeem. The Hazara-Kashmir Syntaxis (HKS) is an active antiformal synclinal structure. It is formed by the folding of Himalayan thrust sheets in the northeast Himalayas of Pakistan. It is convex to the hinterland and concave to the foreland. The northern HKS is a tight antiformal structure whereas the southern HKS is an open structure (Fig. 1). The thin skin faults those bend around the HKS are the Main Boundary Thrust (MBT), Panjal Thrust (PT) and Barian Thrust (BT) (Wadia, 1931; Calkins et al., 1975; Baig and Lawrence 1987; Khan and Ali, 1994)). The active Jhelum left-lateral strike slip reverse fault truncates the thin skin Main Boundary Thrust (MBT), Panjal Thrust (PT), Barian Thrust {BT), Himalayan Frontal Thrust (HFT) or Muzaffarabad Fault (MF), Riasi Fault (RF}, Shahdara Thrust (ST), Hazara Thrust (HT), Nar Thrust (NT), Shah Khaki Fault (SKF), Pir Gali Fault (PF), Samwal Fault (SF) and Ratial Fault (RF).
