Background

The Volos-Atalanti (also known as Volos-Evia) area contains a number of small monogenetic Pliocene to Pleistocene lava flows, cones, and domes. The largest lava outcropping, which originated from the Migoula cone, is about 0.2 km3 in volume and 6-7 km long (Innocenti et al., 2010). The volcanic products are generally basaltic trachyandesitic (Innocenti et al., 2010). The lava flows at Porphyrion and Microthivai date to about 1.6-1.3 Ma. The Toumbanos Hills lava dome, near Achilleion, dates to about 3.4-2.7 Ma. In the Atalanti channel, the cones and lava flows of the Likhades Islands date to about 0.5 Ma, as does a lava flow at Kammena Vourla on the Greek coast (Innocenti et al., 2010). K-Ar dates from Fytikas et al. (1984) range from 3.0-0.5 Ma. Volos-Evia is believed to lie on the westward extension of the North Anatolian Fault, rather than the Hellenic Arc (Innocenti et al., 2010).
