Micropaleontological analysis and facies evolution across the tournaisian-visean boundary in aladağ unit(Central Taurides, Turkey)

Peynircioğlu, Ali Ahmet
This study aims to enlighten microfacies evolution and micropaleontological properties of the Tournaisian ا Visean boundary in Aladağ Unit (Central Taurides, Turkey). Two sections comprising dark shale and dark limestone alternations, including a fairly dolomitized part towards their top are measured. The microfacies analysis suggests a subtidal depositional environment. Foraminiferal assemblages were distinguished at Section AP and biozonation was documented. The biozonation separates the measured section into three zones, described as A, B and C. Zone A is scarce foraminifera fauna, and mainly contains Earlandia sp. Zone B is defined by appearance of a diversified foraminifera fauna and the first appearance of Lugtonia monilis (Malakhova, 1955) with Eoparastaffella sp. (morphotype 1). Zone C is defined according to the first appearance of Eoparastaffella simplex (Vdovenko, 1964) (morphotype 2) and foraminifers Laxaendothyra ex. gr. laxa. Tournaisian ا Visean boundary is defined at the 60th sample, due to appearance of Eoparastaffella simplex (Vdovenko, 1964) (morphotype 2). Seven microfacies types in section AP, and six microfacies types in section PA are identified and, the intensely sampled part of the measured section AP is separated into 13 shallowing upward meter-scale cycles. These cycles, showing subtidal character are detected by both repetitions of microfacies and changes in abundance of foraminifers. A contrasting evaluation of the Tournaisian ا Visean boundary of Taurides with Guangxi, South China and Dinant, Belgium is presented. The Chinese stratotype contains a diverse, more complete fauna of Tournaisian - Visean foraminifera, while the Belgium and Turkish sections are scarcer and most probably facies controlled.


Campanian-Maastrichtian planktonic foraminiferal investigation and biostratigraphy (Kokaksu section, Bartın, NW Anatolia) : remarks on the cretaceous paleoceanography based on quantitative data
Güray, Alev; Altıner, Sevinç; Department of Geological Engineering (2006)
The aim of this study is to delineate the Campanian-Maastrichtian boundary by using planktonic foraminifers. In this manner, Kokaksu Section (Bartın, NW Anatolia) was selected and the Akveren Formation, characterized by a calciturbiditic-clayey limestone and marl intercalation of Campanian-Maastrichtian age, was examined. 59 samples were emphasized for position of boundary. Late Campanian-Maastrichtian planktonic foraminifers were studied in thin section and by washed samples. Two different biostratigraphic...
Taxonomy and distribution of the benthic foraminifera in the gulf of İskenderun, Eastern Mediterranean
Oflaz, Sabire Aslı; Altıner, Sevinç; Department of Geological Engineering (2006)
The present study aims to investigate the foraminiferal assemblages of the recent samples in terms of abundance and diversity, to determine the bathymetrical and the geographical distributions of the foraminiferal assemblages. This study further intends to put forward the responses of foraminifers to environmental factors (e.g. bathymetry, salinity, substrate, pollution, water currents, etc.) on the distribution of foraminifers. In this manner, foraminiferal fauna has been taxonomically identified and quant...
Palynostratigraphic and palynofacies investigation of the oligocene-miocene units in the Kars-Erzurum-Muş sub-basins(Eastern Anatolia)
Sancay, Recep Hayrettin; Altıner, Demir; Department of Geological Engineering (2005)
Eleven dinoflagellates, acritarchs, and pollen biozones have been identified in Upper Eocene to Pliocene sediments combined from Muş, Tekman, Tercan-Aşkale, Pasinler-Horasan basins and the Bayburt-Kars Plateau in this study. FAD̕s of Compositae (tubuliflorae type), Slowakipollenites hipophäeoides, Mediocolpopollis compactus, Monoporopollenites gramineoides and Umbelliferae at the base of Rupelian, FAD of Wetzeliella gochtii in the أmiddleؤ Rupelian, LAD of Ascostomocystis potane in the late Rupelian, LAD of...
Scalar mesons in radiative phi-meson decays into charged k-meson states
Öztürk, Fahri; Gökalp, Ahmet; Department of Physics (2008)
The role of $f_{0}(980)$ and $a_{0}(980)$ scalar meson intermediate states in the mechanism of radiative $\phi (1020)$ meson decay into two charged $K (494)$ mesons and a photon $\phi\rightarrow K^{+} + K^{-} + \gamma$ is investigated. For the contribution of scalar meson intermediate state two models are considered. In the kaon-loop model, the scalar meson intermediate state couples the final state to the initial $\phi$ meson through a charged kaon-loop. The second model, called no-structure model, consist...
Application of high dynamic microfluidization to improve some quality parameters and stability of orange juice
Yüce, Özlem; Mert, Behiç; Bayındırlı, Alev; Department of Food Engineering (2011)
The aim of current research is to analyze the effect of microfluidization on the stability and some quality characteristics of orange juice with respect to treatment pressure and cycle. Orange juice was microfluidized with four different pressures (34, 69, 103 and 138 MPa) and three different cycles (1, 2 and 3) at 18 ± 2 0C. Physical and chemical properties of microfluidized juices were compared with non-microfluidized freshly squeezed orange juice. Microfluidization made orange juice brighter and decrease...
