Abstract

This study examines the tectonic activity of the Ierapetra fault during the Late Quaternary, based on the deformation of the marine terraces in space and time and on morphotectonic observations along the fault. Moreover based on submerged and uplifted coastal beachrocks and archaeological remains and findings, an attempt is made to clarify the Holocene activity of the Ierapetra fault
