Abstract

A variety of morphotectonic features bear evidence of neotectonic activity along the Gulf of Elat. These include : stepped topography, deflected channels, fault-line grabens, sag-pond depressions, back-tilted fan segments, faulted gravel bars and debris flow deposits. The field data are interpreted and related to the geomorphic time curves suggested by Wallace, by Bucknam and Anderson and by Nash and the seismic hazard implications are discussed. The Gulf of Elat has been tectonically highly active during the Holocene
