One of the objectives of the CEC DG-XII Projects GITEC (1992-1995) and GITEC-TWO (1996-1998) (GITEC = Genesis and Impact of Tsunamis in the European Coasts, TWO = Tsunami Warning and Observations) has been the preparation of a new unified European Tsunami Catalogue. Indead, the several national groups participating at those projects worked together to produce the new catalogue which is of a completely new format with respect to previous catalogues.
The present report updates that of Papadopoulos (1998) and contains the quick-look part of the new catalogue that covers Greece and its adjacet seas, that is the Aegean Sea, Ionian Sea, Marmara Sea, Albanian coast and SW coast of Turkey.
