The aim of this study is to investigate the contribution of neotectonic processes in the development of the fluvial landscape of the north Evia Island (Central Greece), and to evaluate the relative tectonic activity in the area. For this purpose various quantitative geomorphometric indices were estimated for a total of 189 drainage networks and basins of the investigated area. The analysis showed that the development of the present drainage systems and the geometry of the basins have been influenced by the tectonic uplift caused by the two NW-SE trending offshore active normal fault systems: the north Gulf of Evia fault and the Aegean Sea fault zone, respectively.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the contribution of neotectonic processes in the development of the fluvial landscape of the north Evia Island (Central Greece), and to evaluate the relative tectonic activity in the area. For this purpose various quantitative geomorphometric indices were estimated for a total of 189 drainage networks and basins of the investigated area. The analysis showed that the development of the present drainage systems and the geometry of the basins have been influenced by the tectonic uplift caused by the two NW-SE trending offshore active normal fault systems: the north Gulf of Evia fault and the Aegean Sea fault zone, respectively.
