... topographic depression was not fully established until at least after the earliest Pliocene. Furthermore, Cenozoic volcanic activity around the Ghab basin is confined to the Plio-Quaternary ( Devyatkin et al. 1997). Taking this evidence in totality, we interpret that Ghab basin formation commenced around...

The Dead Sea, Lake Tiberias, and the Hula and Ghab depressions are a few manifestations of the “leaky” nature of this complex transform boundary...
