Special issue “The next Marmara earthquake: disaster mitigation, recovery, and early warning” is completed

Figure: Hori et al., 2017 The North Anatolian Fault in Turkey is known to have the westward migrations of large earthquakes. In the future, there is a risk of a large earthquake in the Marmara Sea. This special issue is a collection of papers on the geometry and potential dynamics of the North Anatolian Fault system in and around the Marmara Sea and on the assessments of seismic risks including Tsunamis. These studies are supported by MarDIM project, a joint effort of Turkish and Japanese scientists financially supported by JICA, JST and the Ministry of Development in Turkey. Special issue: The Next Marmara Earthquake: Disaster Mitigation, Recovery and Early Warning Read more
