Abstract In this study, Steerable Fılters with current applications in electronic engineering are used to

determine discontinuity limits in geophysics. Steerable Fılters are band-pass filters in a certain direction. The

edges in different directions in an image are obtained by separating the image into the orientation subbands after

passing through the basic filters with different directions. In this study, Steerable Fılters were applied to gravity

anomaly map obtained in Saros Gulf and the results were compared with shallow and deep seismic sections

obtained in Saros Gulf. Later, the connection between benthic formations and fault lines was made. Finally, the

relationship between the fault lines with seismic activity of the region was investigated.
