6 Ağustos 2019 • Kategori: Lead Story, ATAG23

Active Tectonics Research Group (ATAG in Turkish) of Turkey founded by late Aykut Barka, organizes annual meetings since 1997 to gather earth scientists and students, studying active tectonics of Turkey and neighbouring regions. This year 23rd ATAG meeting aims to bring together international earth science community to share the experience gained in active tectonics in commemoration of 20th anniversary of the 1999 Mw 7.4 İzmit and Mw 7.2 Düzce earthquakes.

A great number of multi-disciplinary studies done following the 1999 Marmara Earthquakes, contributed significantly to multi-disciplinary studies in active tectonics. Consequently, ATAG meeting will have special emphasis on the review of research conducted for the last 20 years. The meeting also welcomes active tectonic studies from regions with similar tectonic settings.

ATAG meeting will be hosted by İstanbul Technical University between October 15 and 18, 2019. Keynote lectures will be given by Prof. John Dewey, Prof. Xavier Le Pichon and Prof. Dan McKenzie, following their Honorary Doctorate Degree Ceremony.
