Our aim is to monitor the temporal evolution of the crust in Greece, with a particular focus on the Gulf of Corinth.  Indeed, Greece is one of the most exposed country to earthquakes in Europe. The Gulf of Corinth,  is known for its fast extension rate of about 15 mm/yr in the western part and 10mm/yr in the eastern part. This fast extension is associated with recurrent seismic swarms and by a few destructive earthquakes. This seismicity is likely the result of a combination of multiple driving processes including fluid migration at depth.

In the present work, we use seismic noise recorded from 2010 to 2020 by all seismic stations deployed in Greece, and in particular by the dense Corinth Rift Laboratory network, to compute the seismic velocity variation (dv/v) in several subregions. By comparing the result obtained at different periods, we are able to distinguish the temporal evolution of the upper, mid and lower crust. This temporal evolution is compared to the seismicity of the Gulf of Corinth.
