AbstractThe magnetotelluric sounding method at 15 sites was employed to investigate the electrical properties of the crust and upper mantle near the epicentral region of the June 15 1995, Ms = 6.1, destructive earthquake in the Gulf of Corinth, Central Greece. The magnetotelluric results indicate the presence of a conductive zone in the mid-crust at a depth of 9 to 12 km near the seismogenetic region. The existence of this zone with a thickness of around 7 km can be explained by the presence of fluids in a zone of ductile shear. A second electrical discontinuity was also found at a depth of about 28 km and this may well correspond to the Moho below the Gulf of Corinth.
