This paper presents analyses of seismically induced deformations at Eregli Fishery Port breakwater during the 1999 Kocaeli (Izmit), Turkey earthquake. The paper discusses: (a) observed ground deformations and displacements after the earthquake; (b) the results of field investigations by means of borings including standard penetration tests; (c) analyses of observed deformation mechanisms by a suite of methods; and (d) the possible contribution of soil liquefaction rupture on the observed deformations.


Cenomanian-Turonian drowning of the Arabian Carbonate Platform, the Inisdere section, Adiyaman, SE Turkey
Mulayim, O.; Yilmaz, O. I.; Sari, B.; Tasli, K.; Wagreich, M. (Geological Society of London, 2020-01-01)
The Cenomanian-Turonian carbonate ramp in the Adiyaman Region of SE Turkey (Northern Arabian Platform) records an abrupt shift from benthic carbonate deposits to pelagic deposits near the Cenomanian-Turonian boundary event (CTBE) in the Inisdere stratigraphic section and surrounding borehole sections. A positive delta C-13 excursion of up to 2.15% is recorded in carbonate and organic carbon deposited around the CTBE and provides evidence of a direct link between the CTBE and oceanic anoxic events and the de...
Measurement and evaluation of the hydrodynamics and secondary currents in and near a strait connecting large water bodies - A field study
Gueler, Isikhan; Yueksel, Yalcin; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Cevik, Esin; Ingerslev, Christian (Elsevier BV, 2006-09-01)
The straits connect two large water bodies show highly strong and stratified currents related to meteorological, morphological and hydrodynamic conditions. In some cases, spatial and temporal changes of the stratified currents and their thickness, direction and magnitude are so complex. This complexity directly affects the circulation pattern in the region, water exchange between both ends of the straits and migration of fish species. In order to understand general characteristics of this kind of straits an...
Experimental and numerical analysis of a TLP floating offshore wind turbine
Oğuz, Elif; Day, Alexander H.; Incecik, Atilla; Amate Lopez, Juan; Sánchez, Gustavo; Gonzalez Almeria, Gonzalo (Elsevier BV, 2018-01-01)
This paper describes an experimental and numerical investigation of the Iberdrola TLP wind turbine concept, TLPWINID, in realistic wind and wave conditions. The TLP was coupled to the NREL 5 MW reference turbine and was designed to operate in a water depth of 70 m. The test campaign included free oscillation tests, tests in regular and irregular waves and simulated wind conditions.
Discussion of "Liquefaction-induced lateral spreading at Izmit Bay during the Kocaeli (Izmit)-Turkey earthquake" by K. Onder Cetin, T. Leslie Youd, Raymond B. Seed, Jonathan D. Bray, Jonathan P. Stewart, H. Turan Durgunoglu, W. Lettis, and M. Tolga Yilmaz

This paper presents a study of liquefaction-induced lateral ground displacements along the coast of Izmit Bay during the 1999 Kocaeli (Izmit)-Turkey earthquake. The paper discusses: (1) observed ground displacements after the earthquake, (2) the results of field investigations by means of borings and in situ index tests, including standard penetration tests, static cone penetration tests, and piezocone tests, (3) analyses of expected lateral displacements using two empirical models and one semiempirical mod...
Potential tsunami hazard along the southern Turkish coast
Aydin, Baran; Sharghivand, Naeimeh; Bayazitoglu, Ozge (Elsevier BV, 2020-06-01)
The aim of this study is to determine the tsunami potential of the southern Turkish coast through hypothetical earthquake scenarios developed for several critical coastal sites in the region. A well-known tsunami numerical model (MOST) is utilized to calculate the run-up and inundation of the subsequent tsunami waves. The coastal regions selected to realize the aim of the study are Akkuyu and Yesilovacik from Mersin and Yumurtalik from Adana, which are chosen for their industrial and environmental importanc...
