Tectonic investigation of the western boundary of the Sinai Microplate

Leading researcher: Prof.  Roi Granot

Together with the research team: Dr. Yariv Hamiel and Dr. Oded Katz

In collaboration with the institutions: The Geological Institute, Ben Gurion University

This project aimed at better understanding the tectonic processes acting along the western boundary of the Sinai Microplate. We collected multi-channel seismic reflection data during May 2020. The early results suggest that the motion along the plate boundary might have been in an opposite direction to what we have thus far believed
