Spatial variation of tectonic activity along Golpayegan drainage basin in Iran are assessed using morphometric approaches by taking advantages of Geographical Information System, GIS. The Golpayegan region is located in the central part of SanandajSirjan metamorphic zone, SSMZ, of Iran, where is affected by Iranian – Arabian continental plate collision. The quantitative study of morphometric indices allows to compare geomorphic features and to zoning out and interpret the intensity of active tectonics. In this research, some morphometric indices such as Sinuosity of Mountain Fronts (Smf), Faceting of mountain fronts (Facet), Valley floor index (Vf) and valley ratio index (V ratio) is surveyed to be able to zone out the tectonic activity level in the water basin of Golpayegan taking advantages of fuzzy AHP method in the GIS environment.
