Shaded digital relief map of the central and northern Red Sea showing locations of low-temperature thermochronometric samples collected from the Saudi Arabian Red Sea margin. More than 400 thermochronometric samples were collected to resolve the timing of extensional faulting and to differentiate between different episodes of cooling and exhumation affecting the Saudi Arabian Red Sea margin.
Image shows seafloor features caused by glacial erosion during times when the Pine Island and Thwaites glaciers covered this area. Map width is ~180 km. Seafloor bathymetry is embedded within a satellite image of the present ice edge from MODIS.
