Welcome to GEO's Supersites: Natural Laboratory Turkey

The Turkey Natural Laboratory of GEO's Supersites includes the Marmara Region Supersite and the Van, Turkey, earthquake.

TerraSAR-X is observing the North Anatolian Fault system at four locations from ascending and descending tracks to obtain accurate estimates about strain accumulation.

The North Anatolian Fault is covered by 4 ascending and descending tracks. Acquisitions started in November 2011. The data are available for PIs from the DLR at no cost through a regular GEO Supersite data proposal.

Leeds University project on the North Anatolian Fault (NERC funded) Deep crustal structure of the North Anatolian Fault Zone and the earthquake cycle
The seismic data will be openly available through IRIS/PASSCAL following well established policies after an embargo period. Prior to this, we are happy to collaborate with Supersite projects complimentary to the core objectives of this research planned and funded at Leeds. Those interested in using the data please contact the PI, Sebastian Rost (s.rost@leeds.ac.uk)
