Engelsk: The mechanism of earthquakes at depths greater than 50 km (in subduction zones) is a vigorously debated topic in the geosciences, but it is probable that such earthquakes are related to mineral reactions that liberate water into the system. In our new article, we show that there is indeed a direct relationship between the occurrence of earthquakes and the migration paths of fluids in the Hellenic and other subduction zones.
