Welcome to the CRL-NFO portal

European scientists and engineers are joining their efforts to investigate fault mechanics, its relationship with earthquakes, fluid flow and the related hazards in the Corinth rift.

The Corinth Rift Laboratory (CRL) is centered between the cities of Patras to the west and Aigion to the east. It is one of the most seismically active zones in Europe.corinthe_2014_21a
