A National Tsunami Warning Centre in Turkey (NTWC-TR) established at the Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute (KOERI) under the ICG/NEAMTWS (The Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Tsunami Warning System in the Northeastern Atlantic, the Mediterranean and connected seas region) initiative is operational since January 2012 based on MOD1 Tsunami Scenario Database and TAT (Tsunami Analysis Tool) received from EC-JRC through a collaborative agreement. NTWC-TR is also acknowledged as a Candidate Tsunami Watch Provider within NEAMTWS. The Centre is relying on a system on systems embodying seismic and sea level monitoring, tsunami modeling, message dissemination systems, preparedness and mitigation activities. Considerable improvement on the seismic and sea-level network has been achieved; the communication infrastructure at KOERI has been upgraded and now includes its own GTS system. Further improvement of the Tsunami Warning System at the NTWC-TR will be accomplished through KOERI's cooperation with EC-JRC and METU to improve the scenario database and through participation in the FP-7 Project TRIDEC focusing on new technologies for real-time intelligent earth information management to be used in Tsunami Early Warning Systems.

Comparison of tsunami risk assessment based on seismic and landslide generated tsunamis for the Marmara Coast of Istanbul
Tüfekçi Enginar, Duygu; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi; Kolat, Çağıl; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet (2019-04-07)
A high resolution tsunami vulnerability and risk assessment have been performed for the Marmara coast of the megacity of Istanbul by using the MeTHuVA (METU Metropolitan Tsunami Human Vulnerability Assessment) Method (Tufekci et al., 2018) considering seismic and non-seismic (submarine landslide) tsunami sources in the sea of Marmara. The 28 September 2018, Mw7.5 strike-slip Sulawesi, Indonesia earthquake triggered an unexpected tsunami and caused damage and loss of lives in Palu Bay. The observed tsunami h...

This study aims to explore the origin and location of the October 23, 2011 Tabanlı-Van earthquake within active tectonic framework of Van city and its surroundings. Field-based studies have been done just after the Tabanlı-Van earthquake, and then geometry and type of observed deformational structures were evaluated and integrated with the results of previous active tectonic studies in the region. The observed structures can, based on seismic geomorphological indicators, be grouped into two main categories:...
Tsunami risk and strategies for the European region (TRANSFER)
Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet(2009-10-30)
The project main goal is to contribute to our understanding of tsunami processes in the Euro-Mediterranean region, to the tsunami hazard and risk assessment and to identifying the best strategies for reduction of tsunami risk. Focus will be posed on the gaps and needs for the implementation of an efficient tsunami early warning system (TEWS) in the Euro-Mediterranean area, which is a high-priority task in consideration that no tsunami early warning system is today in place in the Euro-Mediterranean countrie...
Geotechnical reconnaissance findings of the October 30 2020, Mw7.0 Samos Island (Aegean Sea) earthquake
Ziotopoulou, Katerina; et. al. (2022-11-01)
On October 30, 2020 14:51 (UTC), a moment magnitude (Mw) of 7.0 (USGS, EMSC) earthquake occurred in the Aegean Sea north of the island of Samos, Greece. Turkish and Hellenic geotechnical reconnaissance teams were deployed immediately after the event and their findings are documented herein. The predominantly observed failure mechanism was that of earthquake-induced liquefaction and its associated impacts. Such failures are presented and discussed together with a preliminary assessment of the performance of ...
