Benjamin's paper is concerned with the strongest earthquake on record in the Dinarides-Hellenides fold-and-thrust belt. He combines geological data, well logs, seismic lines, bathymetry, seismological data, and balanced cross-sections to create a tectonic model that fits all observations. The model explains the onshore geomorphology and suggests that repeated events similar to the 1979 one shaped the coastal landscape with its dry valleys and other spectacular features.
The paper was published in the Journal of Structural Geology.
