Seismic Activity of Aksaray (Turkey) and Its Vicinity
Tekin Yeken, T.Serkan Irmak, Cengiz Kurtuluş, Cemal Erdemir
Tectonic-based earthquakes occur when the crustal tension exceeds a critical limit due to plate movements. The geometrical features of the tectonic elements are determined in this formation. However, more reliable data on earthquakes have been reached, depending on the developing earth science technology. These data are important information that explain the geometrical properties of faulting and the faulting mechanism of the earthquake-dominated fault. The Arabian and African plates that monitor the development of seismic activity in Central Anatolia are also influential in the development of contemporary tectonics. Therefore; There is a decisive effect of the Ecemiş Fay zone with the Tuzgölü fault zone together in the depression of Central Anatolia. The 190km Tuzgölü Fault Zone inclined by NW-SE is one of the most important tectonic elements in the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex. The Tuzgölü fault belt, which is a right-lateral strike-slip fault, is continuously observed from Aksaray to Bor.
