  Information - SM17 Earthquake ruptures, paleoseismology and seismic hazard models along the North Anatolian Fault

Event Information
The occurrence of large earthquakes along the North Anatolian Fault represents a unique natural laboratory and the only opportunity to test our present understanding of the earthquake process and refine our current seismic-hazard models. The RELIEF project (Reliable Information on Earthquake Faulting, EC Contract EVG1-CT-2002-00069) covered different disciplines from paleoseismology, physics of the seismic source and engineering seismology. This session will focus on 1) quantitative geomorphology and paleoseismological trenching along each earthquake rupture-segment, (2) the use of spaceborne data and analysis (e.g., Radar interferometry and GPS) to constrain earthquake characteristics, 3) the dynamic properties of faulting and related strong motion distribution (including response spectra). A critical evaluation of previous hazard assessments, and the development of new methodologies and scenarios for the seismic hazard mitigation for the Istanbul region will be discussed. Other contributions related to the studies of active tectonics and their implications for seismic hazard along large continental faults are welcome.
