The 2023 Kahramanmaraş Earthquake Sequence

Submission status
Open
Submission deadline

The catastrophic loss of life and damage caused by the two earthquakes that struck southern Turkey and northern Syria on 6th February 2023 shocked the world. The earthquake sequence ruptured segments of the East Anatolian Fault zone. As details of the event come to light, we need to consider how to help and what can be done to reduce the risk to life and property from seismicity in the region.

In this Collection we bring together and invite research and opinion ranging from the seismological characteristics of the earthquakes to lessons and strategies for resilience and the human response.
