Hundreds of sinkholes formed along the Dead Sea ( coast during the past ten years. They began appearing at several locations since the 1980ís. Sinkholes also occur in the eastern Jordanian side of the DS, although only in its southern part. Sinkhole dimensions reach up to about 10 meters in depth and 25 meters in diameter. They represent danger both to life and property, disrupt life in the area, and aversely affect building and development. The formation of the sinkholes is a dynamic process continuing to the present day, and which their resultant development at unexpected sites.
