The database contains estimated crustal thickness in the Middle East. Thickness was constrained by digitizing over 50 published, interpreted crustal-scale refraction and gravity profiles, ...


4. Generalized Geological Map of the World [GEO_CORNELL_WORLD_GEOLOGY]
The Generalized Geology of the World is a highly simplified digital geological data set composed of geographically referenced rock unit patchworks and fault lines which can be combined ...


5. Geologic Province Map of the World [GEO_CORNELL_WR_PROVINCES]
This data set is the digital geologic province layer map of the world. The data set includes arcs, polygons, polygon labels, and attributes for geologic provinces, as defined by the U.S. ...


6. Global Positioning System Constraints on the Plate Kinematics and Dynamics in Turkish Region [GEO_CORNELL_GPS]
We present and interpret Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements of crustal motions for the period 1988-1997 at 189 sites extending east-west from the Caucasus mountains to the Adriatic ...


7. Global and Regional GIS Database Development in Support of CTBT Monitoring [GEO_CORNELL_CTBT]
It is essential for the CTBT monitoring efforts that multidisciplinary information on any given region be readily available and accessible in a digital, on-line format via electronic networks ...


8. Middle East Basalt/Basement [GEO_CORNELL_MID_EAST_BAS_BSM]
The dataset contains basement outcrops, ophiolites, volcanics, and depressions in the Middle East. The principal reasons for constructing this database are to help in the monitoring ...


9. Middle East Basement Depth [GEO_CORNELL_MID_EAST_BAS_DEPTH]
The coverage is a contour map of the depth to basement in the Middle East, with 500-m contour interval. The principal reasons for constructing this database are to help in the monitoring ...


10. Middle East Crustal Profiles [GEO_CORNEL_ME_PROFS]
A number of interpretations of seismic refraction and gravity lines from many of the countries of the region have been published. We collected and digitized these cross sections and their ...


11. Middle East North Africa Faults [GEO_CORNELL_ME_NA_FAULTS]
The dataset contains faults, flexures, fissures, and plate boundaries of the Middle East. Faults are described in terms of fault type, fault length, level of activity and quality of data. ...


12. Middle East Volcanoes [GEO_CORNELL_ME_VOLCANOES]
The dataset contains volcano locations in the Middle East. The principal reasons for constructing this database are to help in the monitoring and verification of the Comprehensive Test ...


13. North Africa Basalts [GEO_CORNELL_NA_BASSALT]
The dataset contains the location of volcanics in North African bedrock. The principal reasons for constructing this database are to help in the monitoring and verification of the ...


14. North Africa Basement [GEO_CORNELL_NA_BASEMENT]
The dataset contains the location of North African basement outcrops. The principal reasons for constructing this database are to help in the monitoring and verification of the Comprehensive ...


15. Short Period Seismic Stations in Algeria [GEO_CORNELL_ALG_STNS]
The coverage contains station locations of seismic stations in Algeria.
