Erzincan basin, eastern Turkey, is seismically very active pull-apart basin and developed in between the eastern segments of the north anatolian fault zone. A study of the regional and site attenuation of seismic waves of earthquakes in this area will contribute in predicting earthquake generated ground-motion and becomes vital in making decisions for earthquake regulations and building codes, especially for the cities on the north anatolian fault zone.
