Title: Assessment of earthquake hazard in Turkey and neighboring
Issue Date: Dec-1999
Series/Report no.: 42/6
Keywords: Seismic hazard assessment
Aegean sea
North-Anatolian Fault
Abstract: The aim of this study is to conduct a probabilistic seismic hazard analysis for Turkey and neighboring regions, using the most recently developed attenuation relationships. The seismicity database is compiled from numerous sources, and the tectonic setting of the region has been studied in detail. Utilizing these two major categories of information together with the selected attenuation relationships, the seismic source zones are determined, and PGA contour maps are produced for specific return periods. The study is intended to serve as a reference for more advanced approaches and to stimulate discussion and suggestions on the database, assumptions and the inputs, and to pave the way for the probabilistic assessment of seismic hazard in the site selection and the design of engineering structures.
