A New Evidence for Lateral Displacement along Wadi Araba Fault/the Dead Sea Transform, Jordan

Abdallah S. Al-Zoubi and Elias Salameh

Abstract:
The Dead Sea rift represents the northern part of the African Arabian rift system. A sinistral strike-slip motion along the Dead Sea rift is confirmed by the continuity in the restored trend of the structural elements. Numerous researchers discussed the structural and lithological evidence for that movement before. Hatcher et al. (1981) first discussed the geophysical evidences. In this study new evidence based on uranium mineralization along with a detailed gravity survey, carried out in the last decade in Dana and Timna areas is used to emphasize the strike-slip movement.
