Figure 5. The roughly 600-kilometer-long East Anatolian Fault from Emre et al. (2018) is highlighted by a 20-kilometer-wide translucent yellow band. The inset surface rupture map from Rietman et al. (2023) is at the same scale as the active fault map. Surprisingly, neither the magnitude-7.8 nor the magnitude-7.5 shock nucleated on the East Anatolian Fault.
