This field campaign aimed at densifying the station coverage on the Armutlu Peninsula in the eastern Sea of Marmara. The Armutlu peninsula is directly crossed by the Armutlu fault, located roughly ~50 km away from the Istanbul metropolitan region. The main objective of this experiment is to characterize the seismic and aseismic deformation of this region.

The installation and maintenance of a network would not have been possible without the help of many persons. The authors would like to particularly thank Virginie Durand, Stephan Bentz and Digdem Acarel for their important help assisting maintenance during Covid-19 times; Mustafa Poyraz, Selim Sezer, and Müdürnü Aziz Aksoy from AFAD for their help with the logistics of the network and finding optimal locations, and Claudius Marx, Amandine Amemoutou, Maria Leonhard, and Christopher Wollin for their help with the network maintenance.
