Validation of aseismic surface creep along the 1999 Izmit rupture, using GPS and LIDAR measurements

Project Manager: Prof. Dr. Semih Ergintav
Project Code: 7685
Project Start Date: October 8,.2013
Project Budget: 36 122 TL
Based on time series analysis of the radar images of the European Space Agency (ESA), GPS measurements and field observations, researchers showed that the central section of the 1999 Izmit break is creeping slowly. Creeping should be confirmed by detailed geodetic measurements. The scope of this project is to revisit the sites and to record the deformations on the man-made structures, using GPS and LIDAR. Data, total offsets, and deformations archived for long-term new scientific projects.
