From September 1981 until June 1984, a portable seismograph station array was in operation at three different locations along the Jordan Rift system covering (a) the Dead Sea area, (b) the Hula Valley area and (c) the southern part of the Arava Valley. Based on the seismological data obtained by these arrays, a comparison of the microseismic activity in these areas is made. These observations are also compared with the data from the countrywide network (ISSN). Some preliminary conclusions regarding the seismicity of the investigated areas and the performance of the arrays are suggested.
