Main Article Content
In 1973 and 1974 deep seismic sounding experiments were performed in the Aegean area by German and Greek geophysicists, from which two crustal sections were established. The one strikes along the islands of Amorgos-Mikonos-Andros and Evia and the other along Crete, in the E-W direction. The main results obtained are: Along the Amorgos-Mikonos-Evia section the crust is updipping from 32 km below Evia to 26 km below Amorgos in the southern Aegean Sea. The crust is of the continental type with Vpg = 6.0 km/s for the crystalline basement and 7.7 km/s for the upper mantle. The average velocity of the crust computed from Pm P-reflections has a value of 6.21 km/s. The sedimentary cover is very unevenly distributed with maximum thickness at North Evia. The crystalline basement outcrops at the southern part of the island and the Cyclades. Along Crete the crust is somewhat thicker, than that below South-Evia with 34 km at the western part and about 30 km at the eastern part of the island. At the western part of the island the nappes have their greatest thickness, the Messara Basin in the east containing the largest neogene sequences on Crete. The crustal structure of Crete is also of the average continental type.
Authors who publish with this journal as of Vol. 63 agree to the following terms:
a. Authors share the copyright with this journal in equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author), and grant the journal right of first publication, with the work after publication simultaneously licensed under Creative Commons Attribution License CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal.

c. Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) during the submission process, as this can lead to productive exchanges and earlier and greater citation of published work and better sales of the copyright.
- Authors retain copyright and grant the Journal of Geophysics right of first publication, with the work two years after publication simultaneously licensed under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 4.0 License that allows others to share the work (with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal), except for commercial purposes and for creating derivatives.
- Authors can enter into separate, additional, but non-commercial contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository, but not publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal.
- Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) before and during the submission process, as that can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work (See The Effect of Open Access).
This journal is one of a handful of scholarly journals that publish original scientific works under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 - the only Creative Commons license affording the authors' intellectual property absolute worldwide protection.
Journal of Geophysics is published under the scholar-publishers model, meaning authors do not surrender their copyright to us. Instead, and unlike corporate publishers like Elsevier or Springer Nature that resell copyright to third-parties for up to $80,000 (per paper, per transaction!), the Journal of Geophysics authors share copyright equally with this journal.
Therefore, all the proceeds from reselling copyright to third parties get shared to equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author). Under the Berne Convention, this protection is an inheritable right that lasts for as long as the rightsholder lives + 50 years.
By submitting to this journal, the lead author, on behalf of all co-authors, grants permission to this journal to represent all co-authors in negotiating copyright sales and collecting proceeds. The lead author should negotiate with his/her co-authors the modalities of distributing the lead author's portion of the proceeds. Usually, this is per pre-agreed percentage of each co-author's contribution to creating the copyrighted work. (more...)
