Abstract

ohammad Sepehr, structural geologist with NIOC Exploration, died suddenly of a heart attack in May 2009, a few days after the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) Conference in Shiraz (SW Iran) which he had helped to organize. After obtaining his B.Sc. from the University of Tehran, Mohammad continued his studies at Imperial College, London. He received an M.Sc in “Applied Structural Geology and Rock Mechanics” from the University of London and DIC in 1996. He completed his Ph.D thesis on “The Tectonic significance of the Kazerun Fault Zone, Zagros Fold-Thrust Belt” in 2001, and then continued as a postdoctoral research associate at Imperial working on the tectonic evolution of the Zagros fold-thrust belt and salt tectonics in the Persian Gulf Basin. Aspects of his Ph.D research were published in a major paper co-authored with his supervisor John Cosgrove in Marine and Petroleum Geology (21, 829-843, 2004): “Structural framework of the Zagros fold-thrust belt”. Mohammad was passionate about geology. In a relatively short period of time, he built up an international reputation on the geological evolution and hydrocarbon potential of Iran in particular, and the Middle East in general. He was never happier than when working in
