From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The East Anatolian and neighbouring faults cover most of Turkey

The East Anatolian Fault is a major geologic fault in eastern Turkey. It runs along the tectonic boundary between the Anatolian Plate and the northward-moving Arabian Plate. The difference in the relative motions of the two plates is manifest in the left lateral motion along the fault.

The East Anatolian Fault runs in a northeasterly direction, starting from the Maras Triple Junction at the northern end of the Dead Sea Transform, and ending at the Karliova Triple Junction where it meets the North Anatolian Fault.
