Description :
As a case study, a shallow geophysical survey using a Chirp profiler was conducted in the southwestern part of the Sea of Galilee. By correlating the seismic and core data the AA. found that areas with good seismic penetration represent coarse clastics, while poor seismic penetration is related to fine clays. New detailed bathymetric mapping and bottom morphology images combined with the penetration characteristics of the Chirp signal reveal a large alluvial fan consisting mainly of coarse material (sand to pebbles).
