Geophysical Studies of the Lithosphere Along the Dead Sea Transform
In this chapter we report on the deep structure of the Dead Sea Transform (DST) as derived from geophysical observations and numerical modelling, calibrated by geological and geodynamic evidence.
A re-appraisal of the seismicity of the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East during in 550-1 BC shows that although the historical record is very incomplete, analysis of the original sources, as
Uncharted seismic risk
The potential for earthquakes along the plate boundaries has been mapped with reasonable success. Our attention should now focus on the threat posed by unanticipated quakes located in the continental

Earthquake vulnerability in the Middle East
Parts of the Middle East have a long history of earthquake activity. This is providing scientists and engineers with a relatively comprehensive picture of the types, distribution and frequency of s...
Pre-Instrumental Earthquakes Along the Dead Sea Rift
The Dead Sea rift offers a wealth of information about pre-instrumental earthquakes. The types of potential archives include historic seismicity, archaeological sites, disturbed beds in lake
Paleoseismic evidence for time dependency of seismic response on a fault system in the southern Arava Valley, Dead Sea rift, Israel
The Elat fault system in the southern Arava Valley (Dead Sea rift, Israel) is a complex fault zone, characterized by marginal normal faults and central sinistral strikeslip faults. Paleoseismic

Earthquakes in the Eastern Mediterranean
In this chapter, improved focal mechanisms and centroid depth estimates of earthquakes, combined with GPS velocities, are used to examine the tectonics of the Hellenic subduction zone and in
Towards a microzonation of the Greater Beirut area: an instrumental approach combining earthquake and ambient vibration recordings
Lebanon is situated on the 1000 km long Levant transform fault that separates the Arabic from the African tectonic plates. In Lebanon, the Levant fault splits up into a set of ramifications that had,
