Sara Mitchell (Gran)



Sara Mitchell (Gran) used 36-Cl to determine the movement history of an exceptionally well preserved, limestone fault scarp in the Galilee. Her first of its kind work showed that most likely three major earthquakes have shaken this region and its people in the last 10,000 years.
