  • Features of seismogenic turbidites from the Dead Sea depocenter

    A recent study investigated turbidites that preserved in a 457-m deep ICDP drilling from the Dead Sea depocenter. This is the first work to show detailed information on turbidites in the region.

    1. Key Points:

    • Seismic origin for prehistoric turbidites is established by analyzing the underlying in situ deformation structures for each turbidite
    • Data validate a previous hypothesis that soft-sediment deformation formed at the sediment-water interface in the Dead Sea
    • The new approach permits a more confident geohazard assessment by improving the completeness of a paleoseismic archive
