Abstract

Summary Global Positioning System (GPS) in correlation with other geophysical studies is considered as an ideal approach for crustal movement studies the network around the southern part of the Gulf of Suez is a good example for realizing such kind of studies. The observed data were analyzed using Bernes 5 software to derive the velocity. The estimated parameters show that, the velocity ranges from 1.8 to 2.3 0.5 mm/yr nearly due NE direction. The principal axes of the strain indicate that, the studied region is mainly an extensional strain around the Gulf of Suez. In addition, the Bouguer gravity anomaly map was analyzed using least square technique to determine the trends of the main structural features affecting the area under investigation.
