Abstract

Guided by air photographs, intensive measurements were made of the height of the various traces left by former levels of the Dead Sea on its western shore. The results point to sudden steep changes of the Dead Sea level long periods of recurring steady levels at different heights, and overlapping of traces of the same height, left at great intervals of time. The fluctuations of the level of the Dead Sea during historical times also proved to be exceedingly large.
