Abstract

Since the Marmara region is located on the North Anatolian Fault Line, it is one of the most sensitive regions in terms of severe earthquakes. It is an important part of the Marmara region as it acts as a bridge between the European and Asian sides and the density of Istanbul's population and industrial areas. Many Istanbul earthquakes have occurred in history. Currently, it is also said that there will be an expectation of a possible Marmara earthquake. Measures should be taken before the disaster to minimize human life and material losses after the disaster. Scientific and institutional studies on the effects of earthquakes in individuals after the Kocaeli and Düzce earthquakes in 1999 have helped to evaluate society's perception of earthquakes. In this study, the thoughts of people about earthquake preparation and perception were evaluated within the scope of the earthquake detection study applied throughout Istanbul in 2021 Compared the results with the studies conducted in 2008, 2013, and 2018, it was observed how there was a change in perception over time. In this study, people's perspectives, concerns, and expectations of disaster are revealed. It is concluded that disaster education should be given multifaceted, that all institutions should work in cooperation to determine the stock of buildings at risk of earthquakes, to accelerate the urban transformation, and to develop infrastructure technology.
