[1] 17 August (Mw 7.4) and 12 November 1999 (Mw 7.2)
earthquakes have caused major concern about future
earthquake occurrences in Istanbul and in the Marmara
Region. Stress transfer studies and renewal model type
probabilistic investigations indicate about 2% annual
probability for a Mw = 7+ earthquake in the Marmara Sea.
As part of the preparations for the expected earthquake in
Istanbul, an early warning system has been established in
2002. A simple and robust algorithm, based on the
exceedance of specified threshold time domain amplitude
and the cumulative absolute velocity (CAV) levels, is
implemented for this system. Rational threshold levels
related to new bracketed CAV window approach (BCAV-W)
