The FT in their new article analyzes the reasons why the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria they turned out to be particularly destructive, while he also mentions what is happening with the Anatolian fault, where the engelado strike came from.
Speaking to ft. comthe Joanna Fore Walkerhead of University College London’s Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction, said that “Turkey has experienced the world’s deadliest earthquake four times in the last 50 years – in 2020, 1999, 1983 and 1975.”
THE first earthquake Monday’s 7.8-magnitude temblor, which struck in the early hours of the morning, originated from the southwest end of the East Anatolia fault near its junction with the Dead Sea fault system. The earthquake was even more devastating because it occurred at a relatively shallow depth of 18 kilometers.
But the two faults are far enough apart that it’s unlikely that even strong earthquakes on one would trigger activity on the other, according to Allen.
“Geophysicists will be able to determine exactly where movement along the fault occurred by reconstructing data collected by seismometers in the area. So more information will be released in the coming days and weeks about exactly what happened,” Mottram added.
