Abstract

The transient electromagnetic method (TEM) has gained increasing popularity over the last years especially in hydrogeophysical and geotectonic applications. TEM-Fast 48HPC was used for collecting the sounding data during summer 2015. The main purpose of this work was the definition of the geotectonic characteristics at the Southern area of the city of Chania by means of TEM-Fast sounding survey which was carried out in the summer of 2015. Detailed geological survey was applied prior the geophysical measurements and all the available borehole logs were collected. All data were integrated to provide a reliable geotectonic model of the area under investigation. Joint faults systems were detected which are in agreement with previous geophysical and tectonic studies in the area. This work shows clearly the applicability and efficiency of the TEM in studying complex geotectonic environment.
