The Gulf of Corinth

By Mike Leeder, Julian Andrews, Richard Collier, Clive Portman, Peter Rowe, Rob Gawthorpe, Lisa McNeill

The Gulf of Corinth in central Greece is a superb natural laboratory for the study of processes and hazards close to an active plate boundary. The area is a key locality for understanding rift geological processes and is an ideal locale for training because of the excellent exposures afforded by rapid uplift and incision. Fully illustrated and complete with bibliographic references this is an essential part of the visiting geologist's field kit. (Series: Classic Geology in Europe)
