ABSTRACT

The paper presents the data on the modern morphogenesis of Sharga depression located in the southeastern end of the Mongolian Altai. The morphometric and morphological studies of the Sharga fault zone were made in the northern part of the depression. As a result, the data specifying denudation processes rates in this part of the Mongolian Altai were obtained. To determine the age of a strong earthquake that gave rise to the formation of the ancient buried tectonic scarp of 9860±185 years, radiocarbon dating was used.

Keywords:seismic deformations, Mongolian Altai
