Abstract

The studied area shows a morphotectonic structure consisting of basins and uplifts. In the north the model of intermediate basins and lens-shaped mountains characterizes the North Anatolian fault zone (NAZF) tectonics. Towards the south the morphotectonic model is the central-west Anatolia model of the extensional tectonic regime of the Aegean Sea. There is no similarity between the lens-shaped anticline-horst structures of the NAFZ and the southern areas. While the historical and measured larger earthquakes happen on the edge of the main morphostructures which are prone to uplift, the smaller ones occur in the internal parts
