Afyonkarahisar, Burdur and Fethiye region, southwest of Turkey is located on a tectonically active area. According to the historical recordings, the region was destructed by earthquakes many times. Since the beginning of the 20(th) century, more than 35 earthquakes with magnitudes bigger than 4 occurred in Afyonkarahisar region. Seven earthquakes recorded over the last 90 years in the region between Burdur and Fethiye whose magnitudes are between 5.0 and 7.0. This new project "Monitoring of Deformations Along Fethiye-Burdur Fault Zone With GPS", is founded by The Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Karadeniz Technical University (KTU) and Afyon Kocatepe University (AKU). The aim of the project is to determine strain accumulation of the study area.
