Following the Kocaeli Earthquake (17 August 1999), the seismic reflection profiles gathered in the Gemlik Bay in 1984 were reinterpreted in order to identify the characteristics of the sedimentary depositional environments and their relations with the tectonic setting. A discussion followed about the implications for seismic hazard assessment in the Gemlik Bay region.
