Aegean Sea Crater
Permalink  
 


A suspected impact crater, measuring 50 metres in depth and 100 metres wide,  has been located by Greek oceanographers off the coast of the island of Evia in the Aegean Sea.
The crater was dated as forming during the iceage when the sea level  was 150 metres lower than present day.
The  exact location of the crater was not revealed by the researchers.

Evia is the second largest island in Greece. The narrow channel that separates it from the mainland is only 40 meters wide. The waters here travel at speeds of up to 8 miles per hour, changing direction every 6 hours. The landscape in Evia is rich and varied with pristine inland villages and scenic mountain roads, gorgeous sandy beaches and steeping cliffs.
