The updated structural discontinuities of Turkey are determined utilizing Bouguer gravity data in this study.
Total horizontal gradient technique was used to reveal the lineaments. This technique is applied to first vertical derivative
values of regional gravity data that calculated from the Bouguer gravity data of Turkey. The determined lineaments are
compared with existing faults in the region. Along with a good fit between this study and previous studies, new lineaments
have been found.  

Keywords - Turkey, Horizontal Gradient Magnitude, First Vertical Derivative, Lineament
