The geological evolution of the Quaternary in the central-northern Jordan graben, Israel
(1965) 337-366

Abstract

"During the Quaternary the Jordan rift valley, 10 km wide, constituted a main accumulative basin for river deposits and lavas derived from the adjacent uplifted mountains of east Galilee and Hauran-Golan. The Quaternary clastic and volcanic fills interfingered with sediments of graben lakes in at least three major cycles. The thickness of the Quaternary fluvial-limnic- volcanic fill attains many hundred meters."
