Short summary
Plate-scale rifting is frequently expressed by the subsidence of structural basins along an axis, but postdating tectonic and magmatic activity mostly obscures them. A 3-D subsurface imaging and facies analysis down to 1 km reveals uniquely preserved Galilean basins subsiding along a failing rift front in two main stages. Rifting within a large releasing jog (20–9 Ma), followed by localized grabenization off the Dead Sea fault plate boundary (9–5 Ma), prevents them from dying out peacefully.
