... that the main fault in the northern Dead Sea basin, the Jericho fault (also known as the Jordan fault), is segmented, or that earthquakes occur in clusters. One such segment is responsible for the formation of a small subbasin on the northwestern shore of the lake, the Qumran basin, whose complex neotectonic...

... of the Dead Sea. This fault rupture implies that the strain accumulation on the Jordan fault north of the Dead Sea is higher than previously recognized. Older seismically triggered slumps buried beneath the 1927 slump show that a record of ancient Jericho earthquakes can also be found in the sedimentary...

... reversed. It is evident that the DSM produces significantly higher amplitudes, by a factor of ∼2.7, in the fault‐normal direction. We simulate earthquake ground motions during the 1927 M L  6.25 Jericho earthquake by implementing the DSM (Fig.  4a , Table  2 ) with epicenter location...

.... The magnitudes of these large historical earthquakes contrast sharply with the relative quiescence of the fault system during most of the instrumental period. Between a.d. 1837 and 1995, the strongest event on the Levant fault was the M ∼6.2 Jericho earthquake ( e.g., Plassard, 1956 ; Ben-Menahem and Aboodi...

The majority of the calculated fault mechanisms, particularly in the central and western Dead Sea Depression...

... of faulting near Jericho ( Reches and Hoexter, 1981 ), indicating that the entire 100-km-long Jordan Valley segment ruptured. The northwest-striking normal faults in this area are too short to accommodate the large ruptures that must have occurred according to the extent of damage. Hence, the observed...
