Pause
On 4.5.17 we had a day of talks on the research being carried out at the GSI on the Dead Sea and surroundings.
Topics ranged from lowered lake levels, water balance, sinkhole formation and forecast, Red-Med Peace conduit, tectonics and earthquake hazards.
new method for ground magnetic measurements
On 25.4.2017, an article by Dr. Uri Schattner (University of Haifa) was published in AGU newspaper EOS, about a joint magnetic study with the Geological Survey of Israel researchers Dr. Vladimir Lechovsky, Dr. Amit Segev and Dr. Michael Rybakov. The team developed a new method for ground magnetic measurements, using a mountain bike. The new method is up to 10 times more efficient than traditional measurements. To-date the team measured an are of 3000 km^2. The project aims at mapping subsurface magnetic bodies (mostly basaltic), and deducing the location of subsurface faulting. https://goo.gl/9n83Uo https://goo.gl/Z51sse
