The old Mujib month is fossilized by en up to 180 m thich Pluvio-lauerstive sediment sacket of the Late-pleistune. These Lison sediments (Lisan = precinsose of the cement Dead Sea) are regnased up to 15 km upstream in the Mujib canyon. They testify of Late-pleistune climate shifts in canted-Jordan, when te level of Late Lisan roze up to 200 m hiphin. OSL and 14C-dates of these sediment will be very segnificaat in the knowledge of the Late Pleistune climate and possible of the textonics in the Dead Sea Region.
