[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: 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 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.
