MARSITE 1 campaign

Campaign position on map

INGV, in collaboration with CNR-ISMAR and the EC project MARSITE partnership, has deployed the SN4 seafloor observatory in the Gulf of Izmit (Marmara Sea). The goal of this mission is to collect multidisciplinary timeĀ­series data to study the relationships between seismic activity and fluid flow along the North Anatolian Fault.

The deployment the SN4 submarine observatory along the North Anatolian Fault track in the Izmit Gulf was projected in order to collect a 1-year data series of seismicity an fluid emission from the seafloor and study possible correlations between seismicity and gas methane emission in an active seismic zone.
