Whole-Rock and Nd-Pb isotope geochemistry and radiolarian ages of the volcanics from the Yüksekova Complex (Maden Area, Elazığ, E Turkey): Implications for a Late Cretaceous (Santonian-Campanian) Back-Arc basin in the southern Neotethys
Ural, Melek; Sayıt, Kaan; TEKİN, UĞUR KAĞAN (2022-01-31)
The Southeast Anatolian Orogenic Belt (SAOB) is characterized by a tectonic assemblage consisting of dismembered ophiolites, subduction-related as-semblages, and continental fragments. Whether the subduction-related volcan...
Late Cretaceous Arc Magmatism in the Southern Central Pontides: Constraints for the closure of the Northern Neotethyan branches
Sayıt, Kaan; Cemal Göncüoğlu, M.; Ellero, Alessandro; Ottria, Giuseppe; Frassi, Chiara; Marroni, Michele; Pandolfi, Luca (2022-01-31)
In the southern Central Pontides in northern Turkey the remnants of two Neotethyan oceanic basins, currently represented by the Intra-Pontide and the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan sutures, and the interposing continental microplat...
Evolution of mafic lavas in Central Anatolia: Mantle source domains
Furman, Tanya; Hanan, Barry B.; Sjoblom, Megan Pickard; Kürkcüoğlu, Biltan ; Sayıt, Kaan; Şen, Erdal; Sen, Pinar Alici; Yurur, Tekin (2021-12-01)
We present new Sr-Nd-Pb-Hf isotopic data on mafic lavas from the Sivas, Develidag, Erciyes, and Erkilet volcanic complexes in central Turkey and Tenchirek in eastern Turkey to evaluate the mantle sources for volcanism in t...
Post-delamination magmatism in south-central Anatolia
Gall, Helen; Furman, Tanya; Hanan, Barry; KÜRKCÜOĞLU, BİLTAN; Sayıt, Kaan; YÜRÜR, MEHMET TEKİN; Sjoblom, Megan Pickard; ŞEN, ERDAL; Şen, Pınar Alıcı (2021-10-01)
Quaternary mafic lavas in Central Anatolia provide geochemical insights into melt generation processes following regional delamination of the subducted Tethyan slabs. New geochemical data from the Pleistocene Hasandağ Cind...
Geochemistry and Zircon U-Pb Dates of Felsic-Intermediate Members of the Late Cretaceous Yuksekova Arc Basin: Constraints on the Evolution of the Bitlis-Zagros Branch of Neotethys (Elazig, E Turkey)
Ural, Melek; Sayıt, Kaan; KORALAY, OSMAN ERSİN; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal (2021-08-01)
During the Late Cretaceous in the Eastern Mediterranean, the northern branch of the southern Neotethys was closed by multiple northward subductions. Of these, the most northerly located subduction created the Baskil contin...
First recovery of late Early Triassic (Spathian) pelagic assemblages (radiolarians and conodonts) from block in the Upper Karakaya Complex near Ankara City, central Turkey: Biostratigraphical remarks and correlation
TEKİN, UĞUR KAĞAN; Kamata, Yoshihito; Krystyn, Leopold; Okuyucu, Cengiz; Sayıt, Kaan; Nalbantli, Mustafa (2021-03-01)
The Upper Karakaya Complex, belonging to the Karakaya Complex, includes different blocks and tectonic slices within a Triassic sheared matrix. This wide-spread unit mainly exposed in northern Turkey also crops out to the s...
Geochemistry and U-Pb ages from the Kosdag Metavolcanics in the southern Central Pontides (Turkey): Complementary data for early Late Cretaceous island arc development in the Northern Neotethys
BERBER, Faruk; Sayıt, Kaan; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal (2021-01-01)
The Kosdag Metavolcanics (KMs) in the southern Central Pontides are exposed between the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan Suture Belt in the south and the Sakarya Composite Terrane in the north. They comprise an approximately 40-km-lo...
Metamorphic imprint of ridge subduction on the Neo-Tethyan ophiolites from the Saka Unit (Central Pontides, northern Turkey)
Frassi, Chiara; Rebay, Gisella; Marroni, Michele; Sayıt, Kaan; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Ellero, Alessandro; Ottria, Giuseppe; Pandolfi, Luca (2020-09-01)
The Intra-Pontide suture zone is the northernmost ophiolite suture zone exposed in the Anatolian peninsula. It consists of several variably deformed and metamorphosed tectonic units derived from the Neo-Tethyan IntraPontid...
Carnian (Upper Triassic) Lavas and Tuffites from the Mersin Melange: Evidence for Intraoceanic Arc Rifting in the Northern Neotethys
Sayıt, Kaan; TEKİN, UĞUR KAĞAN; Okuyucu, Cengiz (University of Chicago Press, 2020-09-01)
In Anatolia, the northern branch of Neotethys is represented by Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan (IAE) Ocean, whose fragments and associated continental entities are preserved in the IAE Suture. However, the traces of this northerly ...
Diabase dykes from Bogazkale (Corum), Central Anatolia: Geochemical insights into the geodynamical evolution of the northern branch of Neotethys
Balc, Ugur; Sayıt, Kaan (Elsevier BV, 2020-05-01)
In the Bogazkale region (Corum, Central Anatolia), pieces of Neotethyan oceanic lithosphere are found in an ophiolitic melange. Within the melange, there are occurrences of isolated diabase dykes that intrude serpentinized...
