  "abstract": "<p>This paper presents the results of an extensive ground characterization study carried within the context of a Horizon 2020<br>\nProject, &ldquo;Liquefact&rdquo;. The project aims to develop a low-accuracy liquefaction risk map for European countries based on<br>\npast liquefaction occurrences and existing geological, geotechnical and seismological information. This risk map will be<br>\nvalidated and/or optimized after performing site-specific, localized analyses in four regions denoted as &ldquo;testing sites&rdquo;. In<br>\nthis context, Canakkale city center was selected as the test site in Marmara Region by Istanbul University team and ground<br>\ncharacterization was performed from a liquefaction point of view. Canakkale city center is founded on loose, saturated<br>\nsand and silts and is characterized by a high seismic hazard and therefore fullfills the criteria as a test site. Within the<br>\ncontext of the study, pre-existing studies carried out in the region were first collected and evaluated. The areas which<br>\nwere susceptible to liquefaction were determined and six study areas in the test site were selected accordingly. A<br>\ncomplementary investigation campaign was then planned for these six study areas taking into account that the data will<br>\nbe used in liquefaction assessment studies. Ground characterization focused on coarse-grained soils including clean sands,<br>\nsilty-sands and non-plastic sandy-silts deposits in view of the susceptibility of these geomaterials to liquefaction. This<br>\npaper summarizes these complementary studies carried out in the region, gives examples from the evaluations that were<br>\nmade in one of the study areas and evaluates the findings from a soil characterization point.</p>",
