© Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.In this study, the two dimensional peak acceleration values between the bedrock and the ground surface is examined by using the soil bedrock model formed for a profile in the Bomova Plain in the east of Izmir Bay. For this purpose, two dimensional soil bedrock model was created for profile using microgravity and Extended Spatial Autocorrelation (ESPAC) method results. The S-wave velocities obtained from the ESPAC method were used to determine the density for microgravity modelling. After the density determination process, microgravity data on the profile were obtained by forward Talwani modelling. The obtained model is divided with gridding the data at regular intervals. In the study area, a recorded earthquake data used for deconvolution by soil-bedrock model known strong ground motion station BYN, and then transfer to the interface of bedrock in addition to obtain required bedrock data. Then, the calculated site- specific bedrock earthquake data was transferred from the bedrock surface of the grid model to the soil surface and layer boundaries. By combining these peak acceleration values for the profile, the two dimensional peak acceleration distribution for the profile was calculated.
