The Marmara Site, initiated by ESONET NoE, is a test site for developing new approaches of active fault monitoring at sea. The project for the installation of long-term sea observatory infrastructure at this site is motivated by multidisciplinary scientific objectives and by applications for geohazard assessment and alert.

 EMSO-Marmara is supported by EMSO-France as a prospective EMSO ERIC site, and also relies on collaborative EU or bilateral projects involving EMSO partners and Turkish institutions.
