Proceedings of the NATO Seminar on Integration of Earth Science Research on the Turkish and Greek 1999 Earthquakes and Needs for Future Cooperative Research, held in Istanbul, Turkey from 14-17 May 2000.
In 1999, two earthquakes occurred in the Istanbul-Marmara region of Turkey and the Athens-Corinth region of Greece, and an increased risk of further events caused great concern among the earth science community. This book presents and discusses the latest results from studies of the Izmit-D#zce and Athens earthquakes and assesses the data that are available and relevant to the geology, seismology, tectonics, geodesy and other fields related to earthquake studies and to evaluate earthquake hazard potential.
