The purpose of this study is to shed light on the structural evolution of the Sea of Marmara, using available geologic and seismic data. Tectonic framework of the Sea of Marmara was established by tectonic events that took place between Miocene and recent. In the region, there are three area or plates (S .Marmara, N .Maramara and Thrace) which are divided by the late Tertiary transform fault boundaries. Each area has a rotational characteristic depentent on the transform faults that define a certain set of tectonic styles. E-W directed North Anatolian Transform Fault seperates south Marmara block from the North Marmara block.
