Magmatism in central Anatolia is characterized by petrographically and chemically distinct granitic and syenitic rocks. The granitic magmatism comprises C-type (crustal-derived) and H-type (hybrid) monzogranites and monzonites. Garnet-bearing C-type leucogranites represent the oldest magmatic phase, but younger hornblende +/- biotite +/- K-feldspar H-type plutons dominate the geology of the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex (CACC). These typically include mafic microgranular enclaves. The granitic magmatism predates syenitic intrusions, among which quartz-bearing syenites were emplaced prior to feldspathoid-bearing ones.


Extrusive members of postcollisional A-type magmatism in Central Anatolia: Karahidir Volcanics, Idis Dagi-Avanos Area, Turkey
Koksal, S; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Floyd, PA (2001-08-01)
The Idis Dagi Igneous Complex is one of a number of late-stage plutonic bodies within the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex. It intrudes Paleozoic-Mesozoic metamorphic basement rocks and Late Cretaceous granitoids. The complex comprises mainly quartz syenites and alkali-feldspar quartz syenites known as the Idis Dagi Syenitoids.
Review of post-collisional volcanism in the Central Anatolian Volcanic Province (Turkey), with special reference to the Tepekoy Volcanic Complex
KUŞCU, GONCA; Geneli, Fatma (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-04-01)
Neogene-Quaternary post-collisional volcanism in Central Anatolian Volcanic Province (CAVP) is mainly characterized by calc-alkaline andesites-dacites, with subordinate tholeiitic-transitional-mildly alkaline basaltic volcanism of the monogenetic cones. Tepekoy Volcanic Complex (TVC) in Nigde area consists of base surge deposits, and medium to high-K andesitic-dacitic lava flows and basaltic andesitic flows associated with monogenetic cones. Tepekoy lava flows petrographically exhibit disequilibrium texture...
On the geodynamics of the Alpine collisional granitoids from Central Anatolia: petrology, age and isotopic characteristics of the granitoids of the Ekecikdag Igneous Association (Aksaray/Turkey)
Toksoy Köksal, Fatma (2019-01-01)
Granitoids of the Ekecikdag Igneous Association (Central Anatolia/Turkey) are products of collisional-post-collisional magmatism in the Ekecikdag area. These granitoids are granodiorite, microgranite and leucogranite. Field relations of granodiorites with microgranites is obscured, but leucogranites intrude both rock types. Mean zircon laser ablation (LA)-ICP-MS Pb-206-U-238 ages of granodiorites and microgranites are 84.52 +/- 0.93 Ma and 80.7 +/- 1.6 Ma, respectively, and age of leucogranites is suggested...
Metamorphism in the Palaeozoic schists of the Southern Menderes Massif field petrographic textural and fabric data from Selimiye Milas Muğla area
Bozkurt, Erdin (1996-01-01)
Abstract: The Menderes Massif is a large-scale metamophic core-complex in western Anatolia and forms the western of two large metamorphic culminations in the Turkish Alpide orogen. Within the Southern Menderes Massif on the southern side of the Beßparmak Mountain north of Selimiye (Milas-MuÛla), two distinct lithologic groups are recognized on the basis of their lithology and structural position: the late Oligocene granitoid rocks now in the form of mylonitic augen gneiss and the structurally overlying sequ...
Discovery of Minoan tsunami deposits

The Hellenic are is a terrane of extensive Quaternary volcanism. One of the main centers of explosive eruptions is located on Thera (Santorini), and the eruption of the Thera volcano in late Minoan time (1600-1300 B.C.) is considered to have been the most significant Aegean explosive volcanism during the late Holocene. The last eruptive phase of Thera resulted in an enormous submarine caldera, which is believed to have produced tsunamis on a large scale. Evidence suggesting seawater inundation was found pre...
