Hellenic Arc

PYLOS 68422 - An observatory of EMSO Hellenic Arc
The Hellenic Arc is a subduction zone, that is where one tectonic plate “sink” under another one. It is the most tectonically active region in Europe, with a variety of geohazards, such as high seismicity, slope instabilities, and tsunami. The deep ecosystem is weak in nutrients (oligotrophic) and sensitive to climate change. The region is also on the routes of many cetaceans, that can be monitored through bioacoustic sensors, which are part of the EMSO Regional Facility equipment.
