Abstract

Two morphotectonic indices (mountain front sinuosity, valley width to height ratio) were measured along the eastern rim of Wadi Araba, which represents the southern segment of the Dead Sea transform in Jordan. The area can be divided into three mountain fronts based on trend and continuity of the escarpment. The southern two fronts are controlled by two eroded boundary normal faults, while the northern front is controlled by the Dead Sea transform fault. - (NF)
