Abstract

The Holocene sequence of the fan-delta of Nahal Darga, in Israel, records deformation associated with earthquakes related to the Dead Sea Transform in general and to the Jericho Fault in particular. 20 radiocarbon ages help to date the earthquakes that are inferred from displacement along faults, liquefaction features associated with 11 separate sandy and silty layers, and slumped allochtonous bodies of sediments located directly above one of the main splays of the Jericho Fault. On average, an earthquake larger than M 5.5 has occurred approximately every 600 years
