Title: Fault Array Evolution and Transpression: Transtension along the Dead Sea Transform
Url: http://www.see.leeds.ac.uk/structure/leb/students/index.htm
Publisher: University of Leeds. School of the Earth & Environment
Description: In this exercise, students investigate structural evolution and fault zone linkage along a plate boundary; specifically, the Dead Sea Transform. They will use satellite imagery, seismicity data, field data, and structural measurements to assess the overall kinematics (changes in the position of objects with time), investigate fault segment length and style, contrast deformation in the northern and southern parts of the plate boundary, use structural data to assess if the fold structure is transected, and use the information on the Roum Fault Zone to deduce structural activity in southern Lebanon.
