The Quaternary fault map of Israel (QFMI) presents faults that show direct and indirect evidence for activity since the beginning of the Quaternary (~2.6 Ma) in Israel, including continuations of large segments to neighbour countries. Faults are classified by: 1) the main strike-slip segments of the Dead Sea transform fault system (DST); 2) faults that have been previously mapped to cross or displace Quaternary sediments; 3) their main branches and the marginal faults of the DST; 4) faults that are associated with instrumental seismicity; 5) subsurface continuations of mapped Quaternary faults. Faults are categorised according to the order of the criteria, i.e., faults are initially examined to the first criterion, and if they do not match, they are examined according to the second criterion, and so on. The mapped faults within Israel are primarily based on 1:50,000 geological maps of the Geological Survey of Israel (GSI), whilst their continuations beyond the borders and/or offshore are based on scientific publications.
