Earthquakes and ancient site selection in west anatolia
Tokmak, Musa; Toprak, Vedat; Kadıoğlu, Musa; Department of Archaeometry (2012)
This study investigates the relationship between the ancient settlements in west Anatolia and physical, environmental parameters including topography, rock and morphological classes. Modern settlements are also included in the study to analyze if the response has changed to these parameters from past to the present. The databases created in the study include three topographic attributes (elevation, slope and aspect), rock type, ancient settlements and modern settlements. Analyses performed in the study invo...

Earthquake imprints on a lacustrine deltaic system: The Kurk Delta along the East Anatolian Fault (Turkey)
Hubert-Ferrari, Aurelia; El-Ouahabi, Meriam; Garcia-Moreno, David; Avşar, Ulaş; Altinok, Sevgi; Schmidt, Sabine; Fagel, Nathalie; Cagatay, M. Namik (2017-08-01)
Deltas contain sedimentary records that are not only indicative of water-level changes, but also particularly sensitive to earthquake shaking typically resulting in soft-sediment-deformation structures. The Kurk lacustrine delta lies at the south-western extremity of Lake Hazar in eastern Turkey and is adjacent to the seismogenic East Anatolian Fault, which has generated earthquakes of magnitude 7. This study re-evaluates water-level changes and earthquake shaking that have affected the Kurk Delta, combinin...
Earthquake imprints on a lacustrine deltaic system: Example of the Kürk Delta along the East Anatolian Fault (Turkey)
Hubert-ferrari, Aurelia; El Ouahabi, Meriam; Garcia Moreno, David; Avşar, Ulaş; Altınok, Sevgi; Fagel, Nathalie; Çağatay, Namık (null; 2017-04-23)
Delta contains a sedimentary record primarily indicative of water level changes, but particularly sensitive to earthquake shaking, which results generally in soft-sediment-deformation structures. The Kürk Delta adjacent to a major strike-slip fault displays this type of deformation (Hempton and Dewey, 1983) as well as other types of earthquake fingerprints that are specifically investigated. This lacustrine delta stands at the southwestern extremity of the Hazar Lake and is bound by the East Anatolian Fault...
