The Greek landscape is adorned with a dynamic relief ranging from gently undulating to rugged slopes of the high mountain zone, only a few kilometres from the coast. Especially in limestone substratum, numerous mountain-plains have been formed within the mountains. Since Antiquity, they have functioned as media of abundant and diverse natural as we...

Its predictive value is tested in the l...
