Ergin, Kazim (1943) Improved Epicentres of Earthquakes in Turkey. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/6XBY-XX41.


The epicentres and origin times of the earthquakes from 1912 to 1939 in Turkey and Agean Sea covering a region between 24-44 E. longitudes and 34-42 N. latitudes are improved and plotted on a map. Data for 55 shocks of 1927-1934 inclusive were revised by the writer. The origin times and locations given in the "International Seismological Summary", improved origin times and epicentres, as well as correction curves are listed on pages 7-31. In addition to these 55 shocks, 14 shocks (1912-1939) were taken from the "Seismicity of the Earth” (1) and 2 shocks from W. Salomon-Calvi (2). These 16 shocks are listed on page 6. The faults drawn on the to map are according to A. Sieberg (3).
