While 1939 Erzincan earthquake (M=7.8) ruptured nearly 360 km, 1942 Erbaa-Niksar earthquake (M=7.1) has a length of 50 km surface rupture. On Nov. 11, 1976, a magnitude 7.3 earthquake destroyed several villages near the Turkey and Iran border and killed thousands of people. Initially, the death toll was about 8,000 people The 1939 Erzincan earthquake struck eastern Turkey at 1:57:23 a.m. on 27 December local time with a moment magnitude of 7.8 and a maximum Mercalli intensity of XII (Extreme).This was one of the largest in a sequence of violent shocks to affect Turkey along the North Anatolian Fault between 1939 and 1999.. The 1939 Erzincan earthquake struck eastern Turkey at 1:57:23 a.m. on 27 December local time with a moment magnitude of 7.8 and a maximum Mercalli intensity of XII (Extreme).This was one of the largest in a sequence of violent shocks to affect Turkey along the North Anatolian Fault between 1939 and 1999.. Located at an altitude of 1,185 meters above sea level, the city's climate produces snowy winters and warm summers. 2 km of the principal fault strand, this study determines the timing of five earthquakes prior to the 1939 earthquake. Despite several uncertainties involved, such an effort to quantitatively simulate the 1939 earthquake is promising, Totally, more than 35000 citizens lost their lives after these events. 1992 earthquake has been studied extensively. Initially, the death toll was about 8,000 people Nature:Earthquake Erzincan 1939 Biography Turkish earthquake,Magnitude=7,8,leading to 30 000 victims.Situation was difficult because of WW II and the coldness of winter.One month before there had been a strong shock. Great devastating earthquakes have been occurred on this highly active seismic fault zone in near historical period. The earthquake that occurred in Erzincan, Turkey on December 26, 1939, registered a magnitude 7.8 on the Richter scale and resulted in 32,700 deaths. Using three paleoseismic trenches located along ca.

Two devastating earthquakes occurred between Erzincan (39.75N, 39.49E) and Erbaa, Tokat (40.70N, 36.58E) just three years one after another in 1939 and 1942.

Nearby cities include Erzurum, Sivas, Tunceli, Bingöl, Elâzığ, Malatya, Gümüşhane, Bayburt, and Giresun. investigations of the 350-km-long 1939 Erzincan earthquake-rupture seg-ment, which is towards the eastern end of the North Anatolian Fault in Turkey. Erzincan (pronounced [eɾˈzindʒan]) (Armenian: Երզնկա, Yerznka) is the capital of Erzincan Province in northeastern Turkey. The last great The study area is located within the Suşehri-Gölova basin on eastern part of the North Anatolian Fault Zone (NAFZ). A magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Erzincan in 1939… The objective of this study is to model the 1939 Erzincan earthquake using the regional seismic and geological parameters available mostly from the previous studies on the 1992 event.
