Dinar earthquake (Mw = 6.0, USGS) occurred on October 1, 1995 causing casualties and physical damage (I(o) = VII-VIII MSK). The earthquake was associated with predominantly normal faulting. The PGA in Dinar was 0.33 g. Strong motion data associated with the mainshock and aftershocks of the 1995 Dinar, Turkey earthquake have been analyzed to investigate the source, attenuation and site response parameters. Strong motion data were baseline corrected, local magnitudes were computed and inelastic attenuation parameters, seismic moments and corner frequencies were assessed. A parametric analysis is attempted to understand the correlation of damage distribution with the fault parameters. It is believed that the obtained data will complement the relatively scarce earthquake data associated with extensional regimes.
