This work presents the first palaeostress results obtained from fault-slip data along the eastern margins of the Dead Sea Rift (also named Dead Sea Transform) in South-western Jordan. Stress inversion of the fault-slip data was performed using an improved Right-Dieder method, fol- lowed by rotational optimisation. Fault-slip data (totalling 2773) include fault planes, striations and sense of move- ments, obtained from outcrops ranging in age from Neopro- terozoic crystalline basement to… CONTINUE READING
