Abstract

Two recent destructive earthquakes that occurred along the western part of the North Anatolian Fault Zone (NAFZ), the 17 August 1999 (M-w 7.4) Izmit and 12 November 1999 Duzce (M-w 7.2) earthquakes, have caused major concern about future earthquake occurrences and their possible consequences in the Istanbul area.
