Abstract

New tomographic images of the Hellenic subduction zone demonstrate slab penetration in the Aegean Upper Mantle to depths of at least 600 km. Beneath Greece the lower part of the slab appears to be detached at a depth of about 200 km whereas it still seems to be unruptured beneath the southern Aegean. Schematically we derive minimum time estimates for the duration of the Hellenic subduction zone that range from 26 to 40 Ma. This is considerably longer than earlier estimates which vary between 5 and about 13 Ma.
