Spatio-temporal variations of seismic coupling along a transform fault: the western North Anatolian Fault Zone
Did you ever wonder how much of the tectonic slip movement is released via large and small earthquakes? It turns out that this can also change in time, particularly before and after large earthquakes! Amandine Amemotou and the GONAF team did a nice job estimating this for the Marmara portion of the North Anatolian Fault, feedback is welcome! See the paper for more details.
Tidal Sea Level Fluctuations: A Potential Trigger for Earthquakes
Our team from the German Research Center for Geosciences in Potsdam has found that sea level fluctuations, driven by tides, can trigger earthquakes in the Sea of Marmara. For a deeper dive into our findings, see the latest press release.
Recent Findings on the Main Marmara Fault: Locked and Creeping Segments Identified
Our team from the German Research Center for Geosciences in Potsdam has recently gained new insights into tectonic activity in the Sea of Marmara south of Istanbul. Our research reveals a unique pattern of deformation along the Marmara Main Fault. These findings are critical for assessing seismic risk in the region. For more details, see our recent press release.
