Istanbul's earthquake hot spots: Geodetic constraints on strain accumulation along faults in the Marmara seismic gap

Ergintav, Semih; Reilinger, Robert; Cakmak, R.; Floyd, Michael; Cakir, Z; Dogan, U; King, R.W.; McClusky, Simon; Ozener, H.


During the past century, a series of predominantly westward migrating M>7 earthquakes broke an ~1000km section of the North Anatolian Fault (NAF). The only major remaining seismic gap along the fault is under the Sea of Marmara (Main Marmara Fault (MMF)). We use 20years of GPS observations to estimate strain accumulation on fault segments in the Marmara Sea seismic gap. We report the first direct observations of strain accumulation on the Princes' Islands segment of the MMF, constraining the...[Show more]
