Methana volcanMethana is the northwestern part of the active, Greek volcanoes. It is a part of the Hellenic Arc with its volcanoes Milos, Santorini and Nisyros. It contains about 32 lava domes, the youngest one of which formed around 238 BC as recorded by Greek and Roman historians (e.g. Pausanias).
The peninsula is famous for its hot springs.
Introduction:On Methana the last activities have been recorded at 1700 in a submarin part north of Kameni Hora. On Methana there are about 32 volcanoes. The activity began about 1-2 million years ago. There are different kinds of volcanoes on Methana. Some are explosive, some are domes and some are only hdrothermal craters or lava flows through karstic systems. The hydrothermal activity is shown mostly on a west-east fault that runs through the town of Methana. There are also the thermal baths and mofettes (gas). Methana has been researched by a group of geologists of the Swiss university ETH and the Greek geological survey IGME. (1991-1995). The result were two maps in the size 1:25.000 (geological and topographical maps). 3D-Maps you can find here!
