The Kerpini Fault Block (KFB) is a rotated fault block within the Gulf of Corinth rift system. Previous studies (Ford et al., 2013; Syarhul, 2014; Stuvland, 2015; Hadland, 2016; Seglem, 2016; Sigmundstad; 2016) have mapped and investigated the fault block to a certain extent. Several questions remain unanswered regarding the evolution of the KFB, especially concerning relative timing between faulting and deposition of stratigraphic units. The aim of this study is to investigate four proposed alluvial fans that have not been studied before. Through a sedimentological and structural approach, the project will contribute to previous work and build on the understanding of how the KFB has evolved through time, and provide additional understanding of how syn-rift sedimentation in half-graben systems takes place. Data will be collected during field work on two separate field trips, followed by interpretation of field data and the generation of a structural model in Petrel. Creating a structural model will investigate how the proposed alluvial fans can be deposited in various structural scenarios.
