PEF rock

PEF Rock dead seaThe “PEF Rock mark” was marked by the Archaeologist Stewart Macalister in 1900, and was used as a bench mark for measuring the height of the Dead Sea for several decades.  

In 1930, the height recorded by the PEF rock mark was m. -390, the heighest ever recorded. Today (2015) the Dead Sea is m. -429 and it is receeding about 1 m. per year.


Contact me for a proposal of a full day tour of the area of the Dead Sea, that will also include the view of the PEF rock.
