<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 ...

The Karadere segment of the North Anatolian Fault (NAF) is the easternmost part that ruptured during the 17 August 1999 İzmit earthquake (Mw 7.4). It has a dif erent orientation, at N65°E to other segments which have a nearly E–W trend, and lesser dextral ...

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
