Network name Eastern Turkey Seismic Experiment: Lithospheric Structure in an Active Continental Collision Zone (Eastern Turkey) Deployment region
Start date 1999-01-01 End date 2001-12-31
Short description

We deployed 29 BB seismic stations in late October, early Nov. 1999. This exp. was designed to image the crust and upper mantle beneath a young continent continent collision zone. We designed the array to target 2 separate regions which apparently were undergoing distinctly different types of deformation. Overall the exp. was successful in collecting app. 700 Gb of data in a region which previously had not been explored using modern seimologic techniques.
