Abstract

Three weeks of continuous seismic monitoring and 33 magnetotelluric soundings have been performed by the IMRG in autumn 1986 on eastern Milos. Some 200 local seismic events prelocated in the field and interpreted using frequency analysis showed that the active seismic zones are limited to the east by the main N-S fault of Zephyria, which is seismically active, and to the north by an E-W tectonic trend just north of this village. A 1-D interpretation of the 33 MT soundings, followed by 3-D modelling, showed low resistivities in this seismic zone and rather high ones outside it. This NS-EW tectonic system seems to control the geothermal potential of the Zephyria plain.
