Corinth canal is one of the most important navigation projects made in Greece and plays a significant role in marine transportation connecting the Ionian sea to the West through the Corinth Gulf and Saronikos Gulf to the Aegian sea to the East. It has a total length of 6.3km and due to its steep slopes possesses serious slope instability problems. This work deals with the effect that local seismicity has upon Corinth Canal by assessing the corresponding site specific seismic risk. Special parameters such as the expected peak ground acceleration and the Arias intensity which are close related with local slope instabilities have been determined. All well known near by seismic faults have been taken into consideration and the most dangerous seismic sources which can cause serious damage to the canal have been defined.
