The Strymon basin is one of the most important sedimentary basins in Northern Greece where significant geothermal fields are located. The SW part of the Strymon basin manifests geothermal interest. Available geophysical data (seismic, gravity, magnetic and electrical data) contributed to the identification of major faults that control the fluid-flow paths of the geothermal field and the estimation of depth to the metamorphic basement. The former is of great importance because the geothermal aquifer is expected to be at the contact of the basal conglomerate with the metamorphic basement. The highest thermal gradient values (10-15o C/100 m) were observed in the western part of the study area near the known geothermal field of Therma – Nigrita. Other important geothermal anomalies (>6o C/100 m) occur in the Patriki area, north of the village of Ivira and in the area between the villages of Patriki and Achinos. Geothermal interest manifests itself in the following areas: north of Mavrothalassa (>4o C/100 m), southwest of Ivira and east of Agios Dimitrios. It appears furthermore that the main thermal anomaly is associated with two NW-SE fault systems that affect the basement in the areas of Patriki and north of Achinos - Ivira correspondingly. These faults have been detected by the use of geophysical surveys. The presence of NE-SW faults extends the anomaly southwestwards. (EN)
