A Map of slip rates and creep (in red) along the Dead Sea Fault and the Carmel-Gilboa Fault System as obtained from GNSS
Computed values (in mm/year) from Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) measurements and mechanical models of left-lateral motion (in black), extensional rates (in blue) and shallow creep rates (in red). The shallow creep is found along the southern and central Dead Sea basin and the northern Jordan Valley section of the Dead Sea Fault. More information about the presented slip and creep rates, GNSS measurements and mechanical modelling can be found in the following paper:
