Abstract

The North Qinling fault zone is the southern boundary of the Weihe basin. The fault zone may be divided into 3 segments by the analysis of the pluvial fans and river terraces developed along the North Qinling piedmont. The inset and buried types of pluvial fans along the fault zone show that the activities are quite different in different segments of the fault. The characteristics of the vertical fault movement agree well with the results obtained from the analysis of the river terraces : the Qinling Mountains have been tilting from north to south during the Quaternary Period
