The Ataturk Dam in southeastern Turkey, and the associated water levels in the reservoir is believed to be responsible for induced seismicity in the region, including a M=5.0 in 2008. Because water levels in the reservoir have dropped significantly over the last year, it is possible that yesterday’s M=5.2 event to the east of the dam was induced.
