Abstract

Numerous sinkholes which have developed along the Dead Sea coast pose a severe threat to normal functioning of the entire area. In recent years, various aspects of the sinkhole phenomena have been studied extensively using different approaches. In particular, various seismic methods have been applied at sinkhole sites with the aim of reaching a better understanding of the mechanism of sinkhole formation and of trying to delineate potentially dangerous areas. Results of the application show that seismic techniques utilizing different types of seismic waves can contribute significantly to achieving these goals. This is illustrated by examples from a number of sinkhole sites.
