Abstract

Abstract Some large new exposures of active normal faults in central Greece reveal polished surfaces that could represent as many as 50 increments of co-seismic slip. The slip surfaces are nearly two-dimensional, with the slip vector aligned down the axes of corrugations and undulations. However, small, but regular, changes in slip vector between top and bottom of the exposure and a regular asymmetry of the polishing on corrugations may be related to block rotations about a vertical axis, and show how the slip vector changes with time.
