Summary

Recent deep boreholes Γ1 (205 m) and AIG 10 (1001 m), performed in the Aigion area, bring new information on syn-rift deposits. MIS1/Holocène (11.8–4.3 ka BP) and Upper Pleistocene are identified in the upper part of the boreholes. Below Holocene deposits, the borehole AIG 10 crossed successively a detrital system with fine intercalations and a thick development of clay. No specific dating was possible on this lower formation, so the age of the local basal syn-rift deposits is discussed.
