Özet

The Dinar earthquake, 1 October 1995, occurred in southwestern Turkey and had a moment magnitude of 6.4 and a normal faulting mechanism. The earthquake caused 90 deaths, over 200 injuries, and a large amount of damage. It was recorded by seven strong-motion accelerographs. The strong-motion accelerograph at Dinar is on the edge of the surface projection of the fault. The record from Dinar is possibly unique in its proximity to the causative fault for this type of mechanism. The Dinar strong-motion station is in a small, stiff building on soft sediments with a shallow water table. The peak acceleration was 0.32g on the horizontal component perpendicular to the fault trace.
