Abstract

Our study comprises a high-resolution multi-proxy investigation of a ~6 m long piston core DOR280, sampled from the headscarp of a mapped landslide on the upper continental slope (280 m water depth) at the Dor Disturbance area, northern central Israel. The core retrieved the sediment sequence overlaying the sliding plane of the last major landsliding event. Benthic foraminiferal assemblages and taphonomy, alongside particle size distribution, were used to determine the provenance, transport distance, and reoccurrence time of mass transport events in this area
