The southeastern Mediterranean Sea and the northern section of Egypt constitutes one of the most complex tectonic areas in the Mediterranean. This study is an attempt to achieve a better understanding of tectonics, and geodynamical processes along a complex tectonization region. These include crustal structure, thickness of sediments, transition between oceanic and continental crust and regional integrated model of the gravity field observed. A wide range of field work from the geophysical data has been acquired and used in this study with respect to the gravity and magnetic data as well as the results of deep seismic soundings. A comparison between the marine gravity data and the gravity data derived from satellite altimetry was made to ensure that the marine gravity data compiled from different marine surveys were compatible...
