Satellite image of the Lebanese segment of the transform
The Lebanese segment of the transform is characterised by
a szeries of faults together with two main mountain ranges. The ranges run
sub-parallel to the Yammouneh Fault. You can see the seismicity
for this scene - a display of active deformation. Interpretation of the
seismicity data is difficult because not all the earthquakes need have occurred
on the main strike-slip faults - there is plenty of "off-fault" deformation.
Presumably much of this reflects active crustal shortening - which generates
the uplift , particularly of Mount Lebanon
and the modern coast line.
