Abstract

Landsat Thematic Mapper (Landsat-TM) and Satellite Pour Observer la Terre Panchromatic (SPOT-Pan) satellite images as well as the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the study areas were digitally processed in order to reveal specific geological characteristics related with caldera structures such as topographic caldera rims and floors, ring faults, areas of hydrothermal alteration, drainage networks and lava domes, both internal and external to caldera structures. Six caldera structures are reported here : Sigri, Mesotopos, Agra and Skalohori, identified for the first time; and the revised geometry and dimensions of Stipsi and Vatoussa
