In many cases tectonism influences the evolution of morphology and hydrographic networks. The study area is Lavreotiki which is located at the southeastern most tip of the Attica peninsula in the Greek regional unit of East Attica.

The aim of this study was the determination of the geotectonic structure and the paleogeographic evolution of the drainage basins of the study area. For this purpose, classic mapping techniques such as detailed field work along with large scale geomorphological and geological mapping were performed. Moreover, remote sensing data were used, a spatial database was created, and ArcGIS 10.8 software was used to process the collected data.

Quantitative geomorphological analysis of the drainage networks was accomplished. Fourth and higher order streams were taken into account. Surface analysis of the study area was performed, while geomorphic indices were calculated. The geomorphic indices of active tectonics used, were slope and aspect of terrain, hypsometric curve and hypsometric integral, drainage basin asymmetry, mountain – front sinuosity and longitudinal river profiles.
