Lake Lisan and the Dead Sea: Their Level Changes and the Geomorphology of their Terraces

Shahrazad Abu Ghazleh
Changes in the level of closed lakes such as the glacial Lake Lisan/Near East, that occupied the Jordan Rift Valley between 80 to 15 ka BP, reflect climatic changes in evaporation and precipitation patterns. However, in an actively subsiding basin such as the Dead Sea (water level today is at -423 m relative to mean sea level), tectonic activity could also contribute to lake level recession. The retreat of Lake Lisan left behind a sequence...
