    İstanbul Geology








    İstanbul Geology

    Istanbul is situated near the North Anatolian fault line, which runs from northern Anatolia to the Marmara Sea. Two tectonic plates, the African and the Eurasian, push against each other here. This fault line has been responsible for several deadly earthquakes in the region throughout history. In 1509 a catastrophic earthquake caused a tsunami which broke over the sea-walls of the city, destroying over 100 mosques and killing 10,000 people. In 1766 the Eyüp Sultan Mosque was largely destroyed. The 1894 earthquake caused the collapse of many parts of the Grand Bazaar. A devastating earthquake in August 1999, with its epicenter in nearby Kocaeli, left 18,000 dead and many more homeless. In all of these earthquakes, the devastating effects are a result of the close settlement and poor construction of buildings. Seismologists predict another earthquake, possibly measuring magnitude 7.0, occurring before 2025

    İstanbul türkiyenin 81 illerindenb biri dir ve türkiyenin en kalabalık şehri olma özelliğine sahiptir. bunun dışında bu il türkiyenin sosyal ve kültürel açıdan en önemli ilidir. son olarak istanbul fay hattı yakınında yer aldığı için tarih boyunca bu ilde şiddetli depremler gerçekleşmektedir.
