The most striking characteristic of this sector is the subangular arrangement (northwest-southeast and southwest-northeast) imposed by frontal (westward) and oblique (eastward) subduction. The mounts and ridges are buttelike uplifted features (examples: Matapan and Strabo mounts, respectively 2496 and 711 m) of different size and shape. They may represent outward overturned folds, probably modified by halokinesis. Trenches are deep (to 5 km), irregularly shaped depressions. Their structural and sedimentary discontinuity is attributed to partial blocking by island flanks.

The block-diagram has been computer generated from a digital data bank. The original contour map (at a scale of 1 : 10,000) was prepared from a dense bathymetric line survey (50 m apart), using a narrow beam (6°) echosounder. The chart depicts the narrow deltaic shelf, deep and intense dissection by a radial ravine system, fiat bottom of the Var Canyon (on the left of the diagram) contrasting with the sharp and crenulate crests, and the near-continuity between the subaerial and submerged segments of the Var Valley.
