The present study presents the analysis of a moderate earthquake (Mw 4.0) and its largest aftershocks located along the Red Sea coast, southwestern Saudi Arabia, with the aim to understand the enigma of peculiar seismicity in the Arabian Shield. We...
A hydrogeophysical investigation has been conducted along the NE part of the Gulf of Aqaba coast that covered a total area of about 40 km2. The area represents a vital part of the ambitious national project NEOM that is a major outcome of the Saudi...
This study explores the spatial distribution of seismicity, the pattern of b-values, gravity and magnetic anomalies, heat fow data, and focal mechanism solutions to more thoroughly understand the present-day stress distribution and the nature of the...
The level of heavy metals (HMs) in coastal sediments has attracted the environmental researchers due to their persistence, abundance, biomagnification and toxicity. The present study was conducted to assess the contamination and ecological risk...
The growing quality and improving spatial coverage of broadband seismic stations on the African (Nubian+Somalian) and Arabian plates motivate us to present a catalog of S-to-P receiver functions (SRFs) from southern Africa to northern Arabia. As in...
During continental rifting structural fabrics (such as  pre-existing faults and joints) are  thought to  influence shallow crustal processes, particularly the development of rift faults, magma reservoirs and surface volcanism (Le Corvec et al., 2013...
We present a uniform database of teleseismic shear-wave splitting (SWS) parameters for the Arabian plate. The SWS parameters, including the fast polarization orientation and splitting time, are measured based on a procedure that minimizes the energy...
