Hydrological modelling in desert areas of the eastern Mediterranean. soil and geology have a high influence on water. the dry areas of the eastern Mediterranean region, between the lee.

    This book is the outcome of a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on "The Eastern Mediterranean as a laboratory basin for the assessment of contrasting ecosystems" that was held in Kiev, Ukraine, March , The scientific rationale of the workshop can be summarized as : Springer Netherlands. Neotectonics involves the study of the motions and deformations of the Earths crust that are current or recent in geologic time. The Mediterranean region is one of the most important regions for neotectonics and related natural hazards. This volume focuses on the neotectonics of the Eastern Mediterranean region, which has experienced many major extensive earthquakes, including the devastating.

    Geologic Evolution of the Eastern Mediterranean. Towards the close of the Mesozoic, the seas retreated from the continents on a grand scale leaving the extended Tethys as the only inland sea. During most of the era the Tethys lay to the south of Europe. Start studying World Geography Chapter The Eastern Mediterranean.

The Geology of the Eastern Mediterranean (Geological Society Special Publication) Revised Edition by A. Robertson (Author)Format: Hardcover. Geology Of The Eastern Mediterranean Paleogeography The relative motion of the Adriatic plate (here referred to as Adria) controls the late Mesozoic to Holocene orogenic development of the Mediterranean region to a large degree.

Since its publication inthe Geological Evolution of the Eastern Mediterranean has proved to be an invaluable aid to research in this important region. Many of the papers are classics that report basic data and tectonic interpretations that still remain valid today.

The Eastern Mediterranean region is a classic area for the study of tectonic processes and settings related to the development of the Tethyan orogenic belt.

The present set of research and synthesis papers by Earth scientist from countries in this region and others provides an up-to-date, interdisciplinary overview of the tectonic development of the Eastern Mediterrenean region from Precambrian to. The eastern Mediterranean, in the Neo-Tethyan collision zone, consists mainly of the Mesozoic terrane belt and the adjoining oceanic crust complex of the northern part of the Sinai plate.

The recent discovery of large hydrocarbon deposits has attracted considerable attention to this by: 8. The geographic coverage of the book spans the Ionian Archipelago, mainland Greece, Peloponnese, Aegean Islands, Crete, Cyprus, Mediterranean Turkey, and the coasts and adjacent deserts of Israel and Palestine, Lebanon and Syria.

The first one, the Pelusium system, composed of the Dead Sea, Pelusium Line, and Qattara-Eratosthenes shears, is primarily responsible for the structure of the eastern Levantine Basin and the Levant.

The other one, composed of the Pliny-Sirte and the Antalia shears, forms the divide between the western Levantine and Ionian basins. Geology While most of the historical production in the eastern Mediterranean countries came from the Western Arabian Province and the Zagros Province, the Levant Basin is the center of most of the recent exploration activities in the region.

Fundamental processes of continental rifting, passive margin development, ophiolite generation and emplacement and the. A summary is given of present geophysical data available for the eastern Mediterranean, and the structural and tectonic history of the area is interpreted.

The western Mediterranean is described in sufficient detail only for comparison. The region is delineated into plates on the basis of Cited by: The geology of Turkey is the product of a wide variety of tectonic processes that have shaped Anatolia over millions of years, The Geological Evolution of the Eastern Mediterranean.

Geological Society, London, Special Publications, 17, 1– Upscaling our results in the framework of the eastern Mediterranean, we propose that the Ionian Basin represents the remnant of a short‐lived oceanic basin resulting from the interaction between two propagating oceans: the Central Atlantic and the Neo‐: J.

Tugend, J. Tugend, N. Chamot‐Rooke, S. Arsenikos, C. Blanpied, D. Frizon de Lamotte. The Malta Escarpment forms the Eastern boundary of the Eastern Mediterranean basins. The series of basins along the northern margin of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea share this progressive evolution, with those containing Messinian evaporites to the.

The Mediterranean Sea, as a remnant of the ancient Tethys, was closed on both east and west and diminished by evaporation in the arid climate of the desert climate zone.

By late Miocene (c. 10 MYBP) the Mediterranean basin was separated into an eastern and western basin by a ridge from the Atlas Mountains through Sicily to the Italian Peninsula.

Despite these discoveries, the eastern Mediterranean remains underexplored and there are good prospects for additional discoveries.

In Marchthe United States Geological Survey (USGS) released an assessment concerning the potential of undiscovered oil and gas resources in. The Ocean Basins and Margins Volume 4A The Eastern Mediterranean.

Editors: Nairn, Alan (Ed.) Free Preview. To kick off this series, Anne Glerum introduces us to the eastern Mediterranean, which has been a natural laboratory for generations of scientists.

The name of our Remarkable Region is quite descriptive: it designates the region around and including the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea.

Several shallow lagoons were developed along the Mediterranean coast and connected to the sea by small openings (Bogaz), in the sand barriers. The Eastern Desert is a part of the Arabian Nubian Shield (Shield is a collage of Neoproterozoic tectonostratigraphic terrains linked to ophiolite-decorated sutures).The eastern Mediterranean region is particu-larly sensitive to rapid climate change due to its intermittent position with regard to the higher latitude (North Atlantic) and lower latitude (monsoonally infl uenced) climate systems.

It also harbors a rich record of late prehistoric .Mediterranean Sea - Mediterranean Sea - Physiographic and geologic features: A submarine ridge between the island of Sicily and the African coast with a sill depth of about 1, feet ( metres) divides the Mediterranean Sea into western and eastern parts.

The western part in turn is subdivided into three principal submarine basins. The Alborán Basin is east of Gibraltar, between the coasts.
