The gathering denoting the 10th anniversary of the Science Center of the Dead Sea and the Arava was held at the southern venue of the Center, in Yotvata.

About 70 of the people working in the Center participated, researchers, PHD candidates, research assistants, students and management.

We visited the site of the oil leak in Evrona and heard about the monitoring program, and the follow-up studies and analyses.

In an impressive ceremony, the new Masada research facility of the Dead Sea Institute was opened on 22 November 2016. The building, adjacent to the visitor center of Masada National Park, was built at the initiative of the Tamar Regional Council, headed by Dov Litwinoff, and funded by the Council, ICA Foundation in Israel and the Porter family. The Porter family previously contributed to the establishment of The Porter School of Environmental Studies in Tel Aviv University.


This year, the Israeli delegation in the Earth Science Olympics accomplished a most impressive achievement! The delegation consisted of four participants; two of them won individual bronze medals and three students led their teams to win four team medals!!!
