Abstract

This works presents new insights on the behavior of two major plate boundaries in the Mediterranean: western Greece and the Sea of Galilee (Israel). Using passive seismic methods, we study the interactions between earthquakes, neotectonics and fluid flow in these two regions. The aim of this research is to investigate the tectonic settings of both areas. Opening, transform and compressional behavior have been recognised and illustrate the diversity and complexity of the processes taking place in the Mediterranean region. We propose new conceptual models pointing out the plate tectonic motion in Western Greece and the link between fluid movements and the Dead Sea transform fault in the Sea of Galilee. The results of this work provide new insights in these two regions and contribute to the understanding of the fundamental link between seismicity and neotectonics at plate boundaries.
