Middle East Crustal Profiles
Entry ID: GEO_CORNEL_ME_PROFS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: 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 locations.

Depths to interfaces like moho or basement are now known and registered along
the profile locations. These can be viewed and compared with other geological
and geophysical data sets. The information can also be used to generate grids
representing, for example, depth to the moho.
