DST slip rates


Spectral constraints on lateral offsets obtained with ASTER short-wave infrared data and calibrated radar-based surface ages for offset alluvial units are used to quantify the amount of total off-axis lateral deformation across the DST and to determine lateral slip rates during the last ~million years.This study is part of Guy Hetz's Ph.D. studies at Ben-Gurion University in Be'er Sheva, Israel and was carried out in collaboration with Dr. Gidi Baer, Michael Beyth (Geological Survey of Israel), Dan Blumberg (Ben-Gurion U) and Hanan Ginat (Arava Science Center). Funding provided by the Israel Science Foundation (ISF)
