Early Warning System

 

Istanbul Early Warning and Rapid Response System 

The initiatives on the establishment of the Istanbul Earthquake Rapid Response and Early Warning System proposed by Boğaziçi University in 1998 (before the 1999 Kocaeli earthquake) became valid after the decree of Council of Minister on 2001 Fiscal Year following the 1999 Kocaeli and Duzce earthquakes.

The establishment of the Istanbul Earthquake Early Warning and Rapid Response System commenced on May 10th, 2001 by Boğaziçi University Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute (KOERI) and was logistically supported by Istanbul Governorate, Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and First Army Headquarters. The whole design and technical specifications were prepared by the Department of Earthquake Engineering at KOERI. The system consisted of 100 stations for rapid response  and 10 stations for early warning .

In December 2012, with support of Istanbul Governorate, 20 new instruments were added and other strong motions instruments operating in the Early Warning and Rapid Response network were maintained. 120 rapid response and 10 early warning stations are operating currently.
