Short summary
The eastern Mediterranean is a long-lived seismically active region where the interaction of compressive and extensive tectonics is responsible for complex crustal deformation. The Pelagonian zone in the Hellenides has witnessed such deformational processes since the Mesozoic. This study combines fission-track analysis (recording temperatures <240°C), structural and stratigraphic data that were essential to constrain the polyphase evolution of the Hellenic orogen over 100 Ma.
