Description

Running for 1000 KM up the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Taurus Mountains, the Dead Sea Transform is a system of seismic faults that marks the boundary between the African and Arabian tectonic plates. This presentation examines the natural history of this tectonic border, seeking to show how human history in the Levant has been nurtured, challenged and shaped by the region’s most important geological feature.
