Sporades, a small volcano on the island of Psathoura characterized by overlapping lava flows, is the northernmost Quaternary volcano in Greece. The volcano is also consistently and more often referred to by the name of the island, Psathoura (Koutsovitis et al., 2015; Pe-Piper and Piper, 2007). Koutsovitis et al. (2015) and Fytikas et al. (1984) give an age of 0.7 Ma for the Psathoura basalts. Other volcanism in the central and northern Aegean islands and the Western Thrace area of mainland Greece is of Oligocene to Pliocene age, with Quaternary volcanism being restricted to the southern Aegean arc (Fytikas et al., 1984). The volcanism is controlled by faulting along the North Aegean Trough, a westward extension of the North Anatolian Fault (Pe-Piper and Piper, 2007; Koutsovitis et al., 2015).
