The maps on the left-hand side show the location and elevation of the low-lying coastal areas in south-southwest Crete (top) and in east-southeast Sicily (bottom). The ones on the right show the areas in these two locations that would be inundated in the earthquake-induced tsunami scenarios studied. The coloured lines are terrain-elevation contours.
