Geological Hazard Detection

Seismic hazard assessment to identify geological hazards in development plan making, disaster management and urban transformation applications; determination of potential landslide areas, evaluation of landslide risks and preparation of ground deformation maps using GPS and satellite technologies

Capabilities of Earth and Marine Sciences Institute:

  • Seismic Array and Single Station Microtremor measurement and evaluation
  • Downhole measurement and monitoring studies (Inclinometer, Spiralmeter, Piezometer and TDR measurements)
  • Geological and geomorphological evaluations
  • Monitoring and evaluation with GPS method
  • Evaluation of seismic reflection data
  • Meteorological monitoring and data evaluation
  • Applications of Electrical Resistivity Methods


  • Ground Vs30 and Vibration Frequency Maps
  • Bedrock Depth Maps
  • Seismic Hazard Maps (PGA, PGV, SA)
  • Landslide Hazard Maps


  • Soil Classification and Seismic Hazard Maps have been prepared for Kocaeli and Bursa Metropolitan Municipalities. The studies for Bursa Metropolitan Municipality are still in progress.
  • Landslide Hazard Maps have been prepared for Çatalca-Yeniköy, Beylikdüzü-Büyükçekmece areas.
