By Looking at the map we could tell that Turkey is a very elevated country and this is parlty due to the two fault lines, the north Anatolina Fault and the East Anatolina Fault. The plate tectonic that Turkey lies on is a strike slip fault which casuses the land to rise in elevation each time they have an earhquake.
The Eastern part of Turkey is more mountainous than the western and middle part of Turkey as shown by the map.
