a The tectonic framework of the Sea of Oman is constrained by the relative motion between the Arabian, Eurasian and India plates. The Arabian plate subducts underneath the Eurasian plate at a rate close to 2 cm/year while the relative motion between India and Arabia along the Owen strike slip boundary reaches 3.7 mm/year. b Ruptured area of strong earthquakes in Makran based on Byrne et al. (1992) and Zarifi (2006). SF: Sonne Fault, defining a small microplate, called Ormara microplate by Kukowski et al. (2000)
