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 pre-located 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.
