In 427 BC, a major earthquake occurred in ancient Greece. In particular, Attica, Boeotia, and the island of Euboea were the areas where seismic activity was most frequent. The fact that these events happened in conjuction with the Peloponnesian war provides us with an account made by historians of the war. Such an account is the one made by Thucydides.During the spring and summer of 426 BC shocks continued to take place. This time, the sea area between the island of Euboea and the mainland…

Tsunami Waves in the Hellenic Area
Marine Gravity Waves (tsunamis) are a secondary geodynamic phenomenon caused mainly after large undersea earthquakes and characterized by a series of huge, gigantic waves. However, this phenomenon
