Last week we went to explore the Dead Sea region with our MSc and PhD students, as part of the “Dead Sea analog to Deep Sea” field trip course leaded by Prof. Nicolas Waldmann from the Department of Marine Geosciences. Exceptional lacustrine outcrops surround the current receding levels of the Dead Sea and allows to identify at extreme high-resolution, different processes, sediment architecture and facies, which can be used as analog to similar settings in the deep sea environment. In other words: diving into the deep sea, without getting wet!
