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...
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...
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.
Seismic stratigraphy of Late Quaternary sediments of western Mersin Bay shelf, (NE Mediterranean Sea)
Okyar, M; Ergin, M; Evans, G (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-15)
High-resolution shallow seismic-reflection profiles obtained from the western Mersin Bay have revealed the existence of the two distinct depositional sequences (C and B) lying on a narrow and relatively steeply-sloping continental shelf which mainly receives its sediments from the ephemeral rivers. The upper Holocene sedimentary sequence (C) is characterized by stratified (simple to complex) to chaotic reflection configurations produced by the development of a prograding wedge of terrigenous sediment. Parti...
Geological, hydrogeological and geochemical analysis of the geothermal systems in The Büyük Menderes Graben
Güdücü, Hatice; Karahanoğlu, Nurkan; Department of Geological Engineering (2012)
Geothermal reservoirs have become very popular in the last decades due to their renewable energy contents. Turkey has a high geothermal energy potential; especially Western Anatolia is a promising region in terms of its highest energy. Büyük Menderes Graben system is a tectonically active extensional region and is undergoing a N–S extension leading to form geothermal fields in the graben. In the last decade, geothermal exploration, investigations and investments have been increased rapidly through the law r...
