<p>We review the long term evolution of seismicity in the eastern Marmara Sea over a decade, before and after the 1999 Mw 7.6 Izmit earthquake. We analyze large scale space-time variations of seismicity in the region and illustrate the impact of the recent ...

As part of the 2007 Marnaut cruise in the Sea of Marmara, an investigation of the pore fluid chemistryof sites along the Main Marmara Fault zone was conducted. The goal was to define the spatial relationshipbetween active faults and fluid outlets and to determine ...

<p>We have modeled postseismic deformation from 1999 to 2003 in the region surrounding the 1999 Izmit and Duzce earthquake ruptures, using a three-dimensional viscoelastic finite element method.</p>
The North Anatolian Fault Zone (NAFZ) below the Sea of Marmara forms a "seismic gap" where a major earthquake is expected to occur in the near future. This segment of the fault lies between the 1912 Ganos and 1999 Izmit ruptures and is the only NAFZ segment ...

<p>We conducted palaeoseismic studies along the North Anatolian fault both east and west of the Marmara Sea to evaluate its recent surface rupture history in relation to the well-documentedhistorical record of earthquakes in the region, and to assess the hazard ...

In this study is presented a catalogue of Izmit aftershock hypocenters that was deduced froma network covering the entire 140 km long rupture of the mainshock

<p>In this paper is investigated aftershock focal mechanisms of the Mw=7.4 Izmit earthquake of 17 August 1999, on the western North Anatolian Fault Zone (Bohnhoff et al., 2006).</p>

In this paper is studied the structure and mechanical properties of faults in the North AnatolianFault system by observing near-fault deformation induced by the 1999 Mw 7.4 Izmit earthquake (Turkey).

The present study reveals several unexpected results that can be summarized as follow.First, the high-resolutionbathymetry highlights the trace of a major fault strand through Izmit Bay that is more linear than previously thought. Second, vertical motion is ...

In this paper the submerged portions of the North Anatolia Fault system beneath the Marmara Sea were studied with high-resolution multibeam bathymetry, subbottom profiling and sediment cores. The major objectives were to learn about the seismic and tectonic ...
