Abstract
    A previously unknown deep, here called Conrad Deep, was discovered during an extensive geophysical survey of the northern Red Sea in June, 1984. Conrad Deep is located at 27 degree 03'N, 34 degree 43'E, only 90 km south of the Gulf of Suez and is the most northern deep yet discovered in the Red Sea. It is located within a well-developed axial depression which also contains Charcot Deep, 100 km to the south. The axial depression is associated with abundant recent deformation and is situated at the peak of a regional heat flow high extending across the rift. Conrad Deep is typical of the small northern type Red Sea Deep.
