Abstract [en]

As a tool to improve the state of land use management in Turkey and to better mitigate earthquake risk inthe future, a microzonation project was initiated after the 1999 Kocaeli earthquake. The project had twocomponents (a) drafting a microzonation manual [1], (b) conducting pilot case studies in the selected tworegions affected by the 1999 Marmara earthquakes [2]. The main purpose of the study was to test anddemonstrate the applicability of the methodology proposed in the Seismic Microzonation Manual preparedfor the project. The major contributions of the study are the probabilistic assessment of the regionalearthquake hazard, interpretation of the microtremor records, and interpretation of the available geologicaland geotechnical data based on a grid approach. All the available data was transformed to GIS format andthe results are evaluated to obtain a microzonation with respect to site amplification, liquefactionsusceptibility and landslide hazard. An attempt will be made to summarize the results of the pilot studyconducted for the Gölcük region to give an overview of the proposed methodology.
