AUTH Seismograph Stolen from Evros Site

seismograph-EvrosA seismograph belonging to the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) has been stolen in Evros, northern Greece. AUTH scientists from made the discovery after noticing that there was no data coming in about the powerful earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale that occurred on Saturday between Samothrace and Lemnos.
According to local media, the seismograph is valued between 15,000 and 20,000 euros, but this theft will cost much more to AUTH and perhaps the whole region, since the device provided valuable data about seismic activity in a highly sensitive area.
A team of scientists from the seismological station in Thessaloniki will be arriving in the area Thursday, May 29, to see if anything besides the seismograph, has been removed from the site.
Metal thieves are the presumed to be behind the theft.
