Seismic Activity Investigation of Elazıg and Surroundings, Eastern Anatolia
The frequency-magnitude distribution of the earthquakes occurred in the city of Elazig and surrounding area was analysed. This region is located in Eastern Anatolia and tectonically very active and has a high seismic hazard risk. A complete set of 1550 earthquakes of Md≥ 1 from 1 January 2010 to 28 February 2019 was used. The spatial mapping of frequency-magnitude distribution was produced. Outstanding variations in the b-value were detected with b ≈1.3 and the region is not homogeneous.
