Thermo-hydraulic conditions in a seismically active zone (Gulf of Corinth, Greece)

Rettenmaier, D.; Forste, A.; Hotzl, H.


Thermo-hydraulic conditions of a seismically active zone have been investigated by means of surface and subsurface investigations, borehole studies and numerical modeling. European research activities in the Gulf of Corinth have been targeted for obtaining data on earthquake sources and fault mechanics and for investigating the role of faults on fluid flow in this seismically active area. In this context the project aimed at the exploration of the thermo-hydraulic conditions in the area near Aigion and the southern graben shoulder of the northern Peloponnesusincludingthe determinationof surface heat flow in a 1000m deep borehole.
