Abstract. Two circular permanent lakes of 150 and 250 m diameter and 6–8 m depth to an unconsolidated muddy bottom occur 250 m apart from each other in the agricultural fields SW of the town of Almiros (Thessaly, central Greece). The age of the lakes is assumed to be Late Pliocene to Early Holocene with a minimum age of approx. 7000 yr BP. The abundant polymict, quartz-rich carbonate breccia and clasts with a clay rich matrix in the shallow embankments of the lakes show weak stratification but… 

The Geoheritage of Mount Olympus: Ancient Mythology and Modern Geology

Mount Olympos on the border of Thessaly and Central Macedonia (Greece) is the namesake of many mountains over the Earth and even on Mars. The inspiration of Olympos to humanity dates from the

Observation of a local gravity potential isosurface by airborne lidar of Lake Balaton, Hungary

Abstract. Airborne lidar is a remote sensing method commonly used for mapping surface topography in high resolution. A water surface in hydrostatic equilibrium theoretically represents a gravity

Interactive comment on “ Observation of a local gravity isosurface by airborne LIDAR of Lake Balaton , Hungary ” by A . Zlinszky et al

Technically, I find the paper well-written and containing a lot of information. The authors describe an experiment – they had funding for airborne surveys, they collected a lot of data, and they

Interactive comment on “ Observation of a local gravity isosurface by airborne LIDAR of Lake Balaton , Hungary ” by A . Zlinszky

The paper deals with a topic which has been discussed recently but only a few publications yet exist. Using Lidar for measuring the lake surface for a local geoid (or a lake equipotential surface)



Mineralogy and petrology of the Polino Monticellite Calciocarbonatite (Central Italy)

SummaryTwo small diatremes, about 0.25 my old, cut through Liassic limestones about 1 km NNE of the village of Polino (Long. 12°50'54″E-Lat. 42°35'34″N; Central Italy).The material filling the larger

Impact melting of carbonates from the Chicxulub crater

We have recently interpreted distinctive feathery-textured “spinifex” carbonate in the upper part of the Chicxulub suevite breccia as quenched carbonate melts (Jones et al. 1998); these distinctive

The age of the Ilumetsa meteorite craters in southeast Estonia

Abstract— The Ilumetsa impact craters were discovered in 1938 in the course of geological mapping. In the crater field area, the Middle Devonian bedrock consists of light‐yellow weakly cemented

Impactites of the Haughton impact structure, Devon Island, Canadian High Arctic

Abstract— Contrary to the previous interpretation of a single allochthonous impactite lithology, combined field, optical, and analytical scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies have revealed the

The Sirente crater, Italy: Impact versus mud volcano origins

Abstract— The Sirente crater is a circular structure with a diameter of ˜80 m. The rim deposit is an inverse‐graded, matrix‐supported breccia. Sedimentological features of the rim deposit suggest

New evidence for the impact origin of the Ries Basin, Bavaria, Germany

The Ries basin is a shallow, nearly circular depression about 17 miles in diameter that lies between the Swabian and Franconian plateaus of southern Germany. Great masses of breccia and a system of
