Abstract

The Spatial and Genetic Relation between Seismicity and Tectonic Trends, the Bitter Lakes Area, North-East Egypt

The Bitter Lakes area was subjected to numerous seismic events which are genetically related to the well-known tectonic trends in NE Egypt. Based on the focal mechanism solutions and structural lineaments analysis, the spatial and genetic relationships of seismicity to these tectonic trends were clarified. The data set included eight focal mechanisms of recently recorded earthquakes that occurred during the period 1984–2003, and the structural lineaments extrtacted from the enhanced shaded relief image of the study area.

Keywords: Bitter Lakes; Seismicity; Tectonic trends; Shaded-relief image
