Proposal Name ISMAR-INGV

Grant:

Luca Gasperini:  2 weeks at ITU, 700 € + 2x7=14 days @95 €/day = 700+ 1330= 1830 €
Giovanni Bortoluzzi:  1 week at ITU, 700 € + 1x7=7 days @95 €/day = 700+ 665= 1365 €
Luca Georgio Bellucci:  1 week at ITU, 700 € + 1x7=7 days @95 €/day = 700+ 665= 1365 €
Namik Cagatay :  2  weeks at ISMAR, 700 € + 2x7=14 days @150 €/day = 700+ 2100= 2800 €
Umut Baris Ulgen :  1  week at ISMAR, 700 € + 2x7=14 days @150 €/day = 700+ 2100= 2800 €
M. Sinan Ozeren :  1  week at ISMAR, 700 € + 2x7=14 days @150 €/day = 700+ 2100= 2800 €


1.      Namık Çağatay (1 week) and Umut B. Ulgen (2 week) (ITU) will visit ISMAR  during April 2010: They will describe and sample cores for sedimentary earthquake records and for determination of the tectonic rates in the Sea of Marmara basins. ISMAR has an important collection of cores from the Sea of Marmara. Sedimentary earthquake records are important in determination of the repeat time earthquakes on different fault segments which is in turn important for earthquake risk evaluation for the Sea of Marmara region.


2.      Sinan Özeren (ITU) will visit ISMAR for 2 weeks during July 2010: Özeren’s main purpose of stay at ISMAR is to work with Luca Gasperini to prepare landslide tsunami scenarios related to a critical mass at the entrance of Izmit Gulf. Ozeren has already heavily worked on landslide tsunami modeling using spectral and semi-analytical techniques and is now developing also a simple numerical code for the generation problem.Ozeren is also working with Dr Nazmi Postacioglu at ITU on Tsunami run-up and a new paper on this is now in the process of preparation to be submitted to Journal of Fluid mechanics. The importance of this critical mass just at the south of the entrance to Gulf of Izmit has been first discovered by Luca Gasperini who worked extensively in the Sea of Marmara and Izmit Gulf. We have high resolution bathymetric.
