ABSTRACT It was aimed to find the structural discontinuities of the Eastern Anatolia Region by using horizontal gradient
magnitude technique. When determining the structural discontinuities of the region, the maximum amplitudes of the horizontal
gradient magnitude were used. Along with a good harmony between this study and previous studies, new discontinuity
boundaries were found. In addition, the basement topography of the region was calculated using the Parker-Oldenburg
inversion algorithm.
