RASAT L2 visible and panchromatic images were used to detect both thrust and salt tectonics structures as a reliable geologic mapping tool in this research. As a geographical transition plateau between Inner and Eastern Anatolian region, Sivas Basin doesn't show hampering vegetation on geologic outcroppings for remote sensing analyses. This feature also allow healthy interpretation possibilities. Salt structures in Sivas Basin can be counted in worldwide well-known examples (e.g. La Popa Mexico, Great Kavir Iran and Axel Heiberg Canada) conveniently.
