Seismicity, focal mechanisms and active stress field around the central segment of the North Anatolian Fault in Turkey
Karasozen, E.; Özacar, Atilla Arda; Biryol, C. Berk; Beck, Susan L. (2014-01-01)
We analysed locations and focal mechanisms of events with magnitude >= 3, which are recorded by 39 broad-band seismic stations deployed during the North Anatolian Passive Seismic Experiment (2005-2008) around central segment of the North Anatolian Fault (NAF). Using P- and S-arrival times, earthquakes are relocated and a new 1-D seismic velocity model of the region is derived. Relocated events in the area are mainly limited to a depth of 15 km and present seismicity in the southern block indicates widesprea...
Seismic hazard of Eastern Mediterranean region
Ertuğrul, Zehra (2010-12-01)
In the present study, probabilistic seismic hazard assessment was conducted for the Eastern Mediterranean region based on several new results: (1) a new comprehensive earthquake catalog, (2) seismic source models developed based on new geological, seismicity and geodetic data; and (3) new ground motion prediction equations (GMPEs). As the number of available regional ground motion records is not adequate to develop successful local GMPEs, the data in hand was employed for determining the most representative...
EDIGER, V; OKYAR, M; ERGIN, M (Elsevier BV, 1993-11-01)
High-resolution shallow seismic reflection (Uniboom) and echosounding profiles obtained on the shelf and upper slope areas of Anamur Bay (Turkey, northeastern Mediterranean) were studied together with previous data on the onshore geology of the area to investigate the origin and related seismic stratigraphy of the submarine Anamur Canyon. It was found that the main axial trend of the submarine Anamur Canyon is aligned with the offshore projection of the N-S orientated, onshore Anamur thrust fault of Late Cr...
Seismic hazard assessment for the North Anatolian and San Andreas faults based on random field models
Akkaya, AD; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (1999-12-15)
The North Anatolian fault (NAF), located in northern Turkey and California's San Andreas fault (SAF) show remarkable similarities. A random field model, developed by the authors (Akkaya & Yucemen 1996) is utilized to compare the seismicity characteristics of the two faults on a statistical basis. The seismic hazard model is based on the level-crossing theory of random fields and considers the space-time correlations simultaneously and explicitly through the use of spatial and temporal scales of fluctuation....
Seismic images of crustal variations beneath the East Anatolian Plateau (Turkey) from teleseismic receiver functions
Özacar, Atilla Arda; Gilbert, Hersh; Beck, Susan L. (2010-12-01)
We used teleseismic P-wave receiver functions recorded by the Eastern Turkey Seismic Experiment to determine the crustal structure across an active continent-continent collision zone. Moho depth and V-p/V-s variations in the region are mapped by incorporating crustal multiples and later two-dimsional (2-D) seismic profiles are produced using a common conversion point technique with our crustal V-p/V-s estimates. Moho depths do not correlate with surface topography and reveal a relatively thin crust consiste...
