Study of the Marmara Sea segment of the North Anatolian fault using geodetic data.

  •  Probabilistic inter-seismic model of the Marmara fault
  •  Network optimization procedure to identify the most favorable distribution of stations in the Marmara region
  • Field work (mission of network densification) and GPS processing (GAMIT/GLOBK)

PhD Thesis

Defended on December 10, 2015.

  • FEM using the software Zebulon-Zset (3D version, Onera)
  • GPS processing using GAMIT/GLOBK
  • Field work -GPS campaigns in Chile (re-measurements of existant networks; exploration and monumentation of new areas ; Postseismic interventions after the 2014 Iquique and the 2015 Illapel Earthquakes)
