Area Description

The region is quite complex and is characterized by the presence of the Hellenic subduction zone which accommodates the convergence between the African plate and the Anatolian–Aegean block. Key elements of the area are the presence of several trenches (Ptolemy, Pliny and Strabo), mainly developing in the South-West North-East direction, and of a complex faults system. ADD REF?
