The Dead Sea Depression is an ∼230-km-long and up to ∼10-km-deep structural-gravitational low along the southern Dead Sea Transform plate boundary between Africa and Arabia. Following an early Miocene–Pliocene deformation phase of localized strike slip faulting and intense fluvial deposition in confined pull-apart basins, delocalization of the Dead Sea Transform and formation of a shear zone over the entire current width of the Dead Sea Depression took place in late Pliocene–early Pleistocene time. Integration of relocated epicenters and focal mechanisms of ML 2.5 earthquakes with a range of structural and geophysical data shows that the late-phase asymmetrical shear zone...
