Article
Full-text available
KOERI has a long history of earthquake seismology, beginning its observations right after the devastating earthquake on 10 July 1894 in Istanbul, by deploying the first seismograph in the region. Naturally, its seismic network and earthquake catalog evolved since that time, in harmony with the progress in the science of seismology. Currently, the s...
Article
As the earliest institute in Turkey dedicated to locating, recording, and archiving earthquakes in the region, the Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute (KOERI) has a long history in seismic observation, which dates back to the installation of its first seismometers soon after the devastating Istanbul earthquake of 10 July 1894. Fo...
Article
The European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA) is the infrastructure that provides access to the seismic-waveform archives collected by European agencies. This distributed system is managed by Observatories and Research Facilities for European Seismology. EIDA provides seamless access to seismic data from 12 data archives across Europe by means of sta...
Article
We present the analysis of a Love-wave dispersion study performed across Turkey and the surroundings. Group velocity dispersion curves were obtained from the local and regional earthquakes recorded at both permanent and temporary stations operated in the region. Love-wave group velocity maps in the period range of 10–50 s were computed using a tomo...
Article
Full-text available
Tsunamis constitute a significant hazard for European coastal populations, and the impact of tsunami events worldwide can extend well beyond the coastal regions directly affected. Understanding the complex mechanisms of tsunami generation, propagation, and inundation, as well as managing the tsunami risk, requires multidisciplinary research and inf...
Article
We investigate active tectonics in southwestern Turkey along the trend between Fethiye, near the eastern end of the Hellenic subduction zone, and Burdur, on the Anatolian plateau. Previously, regional GNSS velocities have been used to propose either (1) a NE-trending zone of strike-slip faulting coined the Fethiye-Burdur Fault Zone, or (2) a mix of...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
On January 24th, 2020, at 20:55 local time, a devastating earthquake occurred in the center of Sivrice-Elazığ. KOERI-RETMC calculated and disseminated the magnitude of the earthquake in the first 5 minutes, according to the rapid information received from the stations close to the center of the earthquake (primarily Ml = 6.8). Information about the...

Plain Language Summary We investigate the 2020 Mw 6.8 Elazığ (Turkey) earthquake, the largest along the East Anatolian Fault (EAF) in over a century. Anatolian faults are emblematic within the earthquake science community, but most attention has focused on the North Anatolian fault which ruptured repeatedly during the twentieth century, and relativ...
Conference Paper
Quality assessment of the data and metadata distributed by open earthquake databases is crucial in order to provide reliable information to seismology, engineering seismology, soil dynamics and earthquake engineering science and practice. The ORFEUS (Observatories and Research Facilities for European Seismology) community coordinates two major stro...
Article
Full-text available
Turkey is located in a seismically active region with a complex tectonic history. In order to perform seismic risk assessment precisely, major fault zones (North Anatolian Fault Zone and East Anatolian Fault Zone) that are well defined are monitored continuously. It is a widely known fact that intraplate settings, such as Anatolian Plate, in which...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Seismicity catalogs are the most important product of seismic network operating centers, especially for the earthquake hazard studies. Understanding the nature of regional catalogues has primary importance in shedding light on statistical parameters of the seismicity behavior of that given region. It is a well-known truth that man made inhomogeneti...

Preliminary evaluation of the performance of the Broadband Seismic Stations in Nigeria has been carried out. The aim is to test the recording capability, data quality for research and estimate the signal to noise ratios of the stations. The methodology involves the noise analysis for the Kaduna station located on basement complex in the northern pa...
Chapter
The North Anatolian Fault Zone is (NAFZ), which is one of the world’s most active seismic structures, runs along the northern part of Turkey. Seismic velocity structure of the crust in the seismically active regions such as NAFZ plays an important role not only in the accurate hypocenter location and characterization of earthquakes but also in the...
Article
The 20 July 2017 Bodrum–Kos earthquake (Mw 6.6) is the largest instrumentally-recorded earthquake in the Gökova graben, one of the primary physiographic features of SW Turkey. Using seismology and satellite geodesy, we investigate its source characteristics, aftershock distribution, relationship with earlier instrumental seismicity, and association...
Article
Turkey and its surrounding regions are tectonically active and have high‐seismicity rates. The seismicity in the region is observed by the national networks of the Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute (KOERI) and the Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency Earthquake Department (AFAD). The quality and quantity of seismic stat...

This study provides new constraints on the upper-mantle structure from western Greece to central Anatolia using seismic data of permanent broad-band networks recently installed in Greece and Turkey and from a two-year temporary array (SIMBAAD experiment). We used ˜200 seismic events recorded at 146 broad-band stations with a typical interstation di...

Eastern Turkey is the most tectonically active region in Turkey. This region contains the East Anatolian Fault Zone (EAFZ) that is one of the most active tectonic zone and it has a long history of devastating earthquakes. At the same time EAFZ is the southeastern boundary of the Anatolian Block. EAFZ is a left-lateral strike-slip fault that extends...

In the Aegean-Anatolian domain, one of the key questions is the mantle structure between the Hellenic arc and Eastern Anatolia. The SIMBAAD temporary seismic experiment was designed to address this question and image the diffuse boundary between the Aegean and Anatolian plates. Deployed during 2 years, the SIMBAAD experiment is a dense seismic broa...

Data of more than 150 temporary and permanent broadband seismological stations deployed in the Aegean-Anatolian domain between May 2007 and May 2009 are grouped in the SIMBAAD (Seismic Imaging of the Mantle Across the Anatolian Domain) dataset. We compute noise cross-correlations between all station pairs on a 1.5-yr duration. We obtain more than 1...

Full-text available
The question of the driving engine for the rapid displacement of Anatolia towards the W-SW is still open: push by the Arabian indenter, or pull by the retreat of the Hellenic slab? The hypothesis of a basal drag of Anatolia and Aegea by mantle flow related to slab retreat receives increasing attention. To better constrain mantle flow, we have mappe...
Article
SIMBAAD (Seismic Imaging of the Mantle in the Aegean-Anatolian Domain) is a temporary seismic experiment which aims at investigating the crustal and mantle structure beneath Western Turkey, the Aegean Sea, and continental Greece. This tectonically very active region has experienced a variety of geodynamic processes and its geology and kinematics ha...
Article
We investigate the crustal structure of Aegean area using continuous seismic records from the SIMBAAD temporary seismic experiment and permanent broadband stations in Greece and Turkey. This first study focuses on Western Anatolia where informations on the crustal structure is scarce. We use one-year noise records of a total of almost 120 stations...
