Seismic risk in eastern Mediterranean higher than previously estimated

The eastern Mediterranean is more seismically active than previously assumed, a new study finds. On a geological time scale, seismic activity around the island of Crete has generated large earthquakes in bursts, potentially increasing the future risk for earthquakes and tsunamis in the region, finds the new study accepted for publication in Geophysical Research Letters, a publication of the American Geophysical Union.
