This manuscript presents the seismic source characterization models that were developed and used for the Western Balkan region in the framework of Harmonization of Seismic Hazard Maps in the Western Balkan Countries Project (BSHAP II) funded by NATO-Science for Peace and Security Program. Relevant knowledge about the geological and seismotectonic structure of Western Balkans and surrounding region was collected and utilized along with the BSHAP focal mechanism database and the BSHAP earthquake catalogue (Markusic et al. in Bull Earthq Eng 14(2): 321-343, 2016. doi: 10.1007/s10518015- 9833-z) to delineate seismic source models for different purposes. The super zone model of large zones bounds the regions with similar seismotectonic characteristics and catalogue completeness levels and was used for calculating the regional b-value of the magnitude recurrence relationship. Additionally, two models of smaller zones that represent the epistemic uncertainty in source geometry, maximum magnitude and style-of-faulting, were developed to be employed in the two-stage (circular and elliptical) smoothing procedure. Sets of sensitivity analyses are performed to support final estimates of some models' parameters affecting the smoothed seismicity rate. The seismic source models and the logic-tree presented here are to be implemented in the probabilistic seismic hazard assessment for the seismic hazard maps of the Western Balkan region.

Urban morphological study as a method of urban design assessment in the historic context of Iranian cities: a case study on Urmia
Soleimani, Meysam; Bilsel, Fatma Cânâ; Department of Architecture (2020-11)
A controversial large-scale project at the historic core of the city of Urmia in Iran, has been the starting point of the present study. The Imam Square project was enthusiastically proposed as a solution for the revitalization of the decayed areas in the historic city center. However, the failure of the first phase of the project has given rise to serious doubts about its progress for approximately eight years. The present study argues that without understanding the morphological logic of a city and its ev...
