Preferred Abstract (Original): 

The first joint geophysical survey by Israel and the Palestinian Authority was carried out in February 1999 in the vicinity of Jericho. Jericho is located within the Dead Sea Rift valley about 10 km north of the Dead Sea shore. 102 new gravity stations were measured jointly by the authors in order to fill a gap in the existing gravity network (Figs. 1 and 2). The data were processed and incorporated into the joint Gravity Data Base for Israel and Jordan. The project was funded by US-AID project #TA-MOU-96-C15-165 with additional funds from An-Najah University, the Geophysical Institute of Israel, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
