Abstract

This study aims to detect the youngest surface ruptures in the southern Arava Valley and to subject them to paleoseismologic analysis in order to further constrain the recurrence intervals and magnitudes of prehistoric earthquakes in this region. The seismic qiescence in the Arava may indicate a seismic gap in this segment of the Dead Sea Transform (DST) in southern Israel
