Sedimentary cyclicity and micropaleontological investigations in the upper triassic shallow marine carbonate successions (central and western taurides, turkey)
Coşkun Tunaboylu, Burcu; Altıner, Demir; Department of Geological Engineering (2008)
Shallowing-upward meter-scale cycles (parasequences) consisting of megalodont-bearing limestones or clay levels at the bottom and fenestral limestones, breccias, stromatolites or vadose pisoids at the top constitute the basic working units of the Upper Triassic successions in the Central and Western Taurides. These cycles are mainly represented by subtidal through supratidal carbonate facies and known as Lofer cycles in the literature. The presence of breccias, mud cracks, dissolution vugs and vadose pisoid...
Geochemical monitoring of the seismic activities and noble gas characterization of the geothermal fields along the eastern segment of the büyük menderes graben
Süer, Selin; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan; Department of Geological Engineering (2010)
This study aims the real-time monitoring of gases (CO2, N2, O2, H2, H2S, CH4, He, Ar) discharging from natural pools in the Tekke Hamam geothermal field (Denizli) in addition to the geochemical characterization of the field along with the Kızıldere geothermal field, both located at the eastern segment of the Büyük Menderes Graben. The continuous gas monitoring experiment (November 2007-October 2008) conducted in the Tekke Hamam geothermal field has revealed temporal variations in the gas compositions, gas f...
Geotechnical characterization and performance assessment of bentonite/sand mixtures for underground waste repository sealing
Akgün, Haluk (Elsevier BV, 2010-08-01)
The objective of this study is to assess the performance of a bentonite/sand mixture for the sealing of underground waste repositories through performing geotechnical laboratory tests such as compaction and flow tests. Swelling, mechanical and shear strength tests along with analyses of seal/rock mechanical interactions of an axially loaded seal in rock have been conducted to recommend an optimum compacted bentonite/sand mixture and a suitable bentonite/sand seal length-to-radius ratio (L/a) as a function o...
Alteration identification by hyperspectral remote sensing in sisorta gold prospect (Sivas-Turkey)
Yetkin, Erdem; Toprak, Vedat; Department of Geological Engineering (2009)
Imaging spectrometry data or hyperspectral imagery acquired using airborne systems have been used in the geologic community since the early 1980’s and represent a mature technology. The solar spectral range 0.4–2.5 μm provides abundant information about hydroxyl-bearing minerals, sulfates and carbonates common to many geologic units and hydrothermal alteration assemblages. Satellite based Hyperion image data is used to implement and test hyperspectral processing techniques to identify alteration minerals an...
BODUR, MN; ERGIN, M (Elsevier BV, 1994-07-01)
Six box-cores, one boomerang core and one hundred sixty-six surface sediment samples recovered in the Sea of Marmara were analyzed in an attempt to establish the main controls on distribution and origin of trace metals within the oxic to suboxic basin of this sea.
