Abstract

Reconnaissance level geomorphological observations in the northern part of Evia (Euboea) Island, suggest that a major topographic feature, the Nileas depression (NDpr) corresponds to a previously undetected graben structure, bounded by fault zones of ENE-WSW to NE-SW general strike active in the Quaternary. Moderate earthquakes and focal mechanisms of micro-eartquakes inside the depression suggest that these fault zones may still be accommodating strain also today
