Earthquake history of Turkey

Earthquake is a reality that the world lives with. Turkey is one of the active countries for geological activities. An earthquake occurred in Izmir region of Turkey. Its epicenter was under the Aegean Sea. It can be considered as a close point for the land. So its impact got wider. Turkey, Greece and neighbour countries had the strong impact.

It is obvious that earthquake was as active power as today. We know that many ancient sites collapsed as the result of earthquake. The archeaological works proved us that many ancient civilizations (especially around the Aegean region) had deep impact because of earthquakes. Some sites have multiple layers so the geological systems are one of the main reasons to be collapsed. Those layers are like time capsules so we can see the traces of earthquakes in history…
