Geodetic constraints on the tectonic evolution of the Aegean region and strain accumulation along the Hellenic subduction zone

Reilinger, Robert; McClusky, Simon; Paradissis, D.; Ergintav, Semih; Vernant, P.


We present evidence that GPS velocity estimates of plate motions and fault slip rates agree to within uncertainties with geologic estimates during the most recent phase of the geologic evolution of the E Mediterranean region (post-Late Miocene). On this basis, we use the GPS differential velocities to estimate the timing of initiation of the principal structures in NW Turkey, the N Aegean Sea, and central Greece, including, the Marmara Sea, the Gulfs of Evia (GoE) and Corinth (GoC), and the...[Show more]
