Abstract

The North Anatolian fault of Turkey is remarkably similar to the San Andreas fault of California in its style of displacement, high seismicity, physiographic expression, neotectonic history, presence of creep, and problems of seismic-hazard evaluation. On the other hand, significant contrasts between the two faults exist in their space-time patterns of seismicity and in their plate-tectonic relationships. Workers in the two areas have much to learn from one another.
