Crustal structure of the Aegean Sea and the Hellenides obtained from geophysical surveys
Main Article Content
In the period 1971 to 1974 the territory of Greece has been geophysically investigated by Greek and German Institutions. Gravity and magnetic stations have been distributed at a spacing of one station per 25 km2. Five deep seismic sounding cross-sections have been fired and recorded along the lines: Ionian Sea — Peloponnese, Amorgos — Mikonos — Evia, Crete: East-West, Cretan Sea: North-South, Cretan Sea: East-West. The results of the seismic programms revealed a pure continental structure of variable thickness. The most attenuated area is that of the Cretan Sea, with only 22 km depth to the Moho-Discontinuity at the Bouguer gravity maximum of +175 mgal. The very unevenly distributed sedimentary cover of the Cretan Sea is composed mainly of Neogene Sediments with thickness of 3–3,5 km in local basins (Jonsma et al., 1975). The Greek mainland along the Pindos Chains has minimum Bouguer anomalies of –120 to –140 mgal and Moho-Depths between 42–46 km. The Aegean Area builds a large dome and incorporates also a large part of the Taurides, Western Turkey (Makris, 1975).

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.
b. Authors may enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal, and a reference to this copyright notice.
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 three 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...)
