The study area, Paykola anticline, is located in the southwestern part of Kermanshah Province. The aim of this research is to evaluate the Geomorphological indexes of active tectonics in Paykola anticline as well as to study the effect of tectonic in the form and direction of geomorphological landforms. To achieve the aim of study, the lithological and tectonic characteristics of study area were obtained based on 1،100000 geololgical map. Geomorphological landforms were identified by means of Quickbird imagery as well as field work. Geomorphological indexes of active tectonics such as mountain front sinuosity, triangular facets, river spacing, drainage density, wine-glass valleys, hypsometric integral and river meander were analyzed. The presence of fairly straight mountain fronts, triangular with long base and steep slope, low drainage density, parallel drainage pattern, wine-glass valley and higher hypsometric integral of northwestern limb show that this part of anticline is tectonically active than southwestern limb.
Keywords: Paykola, Tectonic, wine-glass Valley, Hypsometric Integral .
