Middle East North Africa Faults
Entry ID: GEO_CORNELL_ME_NA_FAULTS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: 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.

The principal reasons for constructing this database are to help in the
monitoring and verification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) and to
study the complex tectonic and geologic problems of the region. This database
will also have an impact in natural hazard evaluation, particularly in
uderstanding the earthquake occurrences in the region and seismic risk
assessment. The data set can also be used in classrooms as an educational
tool.
