  • Comparative geochemistry of volcanics from rift valleys, transform faults and aseismic ridges
  • It is suggested that transform faults have, by faulting, exposed more fractioned types of basaltic rocks (may be as intrusives) than the rift valley volcanics. While aseismic ridges have undergone a greater degree of differentiation than both

  • The Holocene sequence of the fan-delta of Nahal Darga, in Israel, records deformation associated with earthquakes related to the Dead Sea Transform in general and to the Jericho Fault in particular. 20 radiocarbon ages help to date the earthquakes
  • that are inferred from displacement along faults, liquefaction features associated with 11 separate sandy and silty layers, and slumped allochtonous bodies of sediments located directly above one of the main splays of the Jericho Fault. On average, an earthquake

  • California ; Earthquake ; Fault ; Natural hazards ; Neotectonics ; Structural geomorphology ; United States
  • The present paper considers fault-related features as the result of the interplay of constructive influences (tectonic activity) and destructive influences (erosional and depositional activity).Variables affecting the geomorphological expression
