The Central Pontides in northern Anatolia is located on the accretionary complex formed by the closure of Neotethyan Intra-Pontide Ocean between the southern Eurasian margin (Istanbul-Zonguldak Terrane) and the Cimmerian Sakarya Composite Terrane. Among other components of the oceanic lithosphere, it comprises not yet well-dated felsic igneous rocks formed in arc-basin as well as continent margin settings. In-situ U-Pb age results for zircons from the arc-basin system (tiangaldag Metamorphic Complex) and the continental arc (Devrekani Metadiorite and Granitoid) yield ages of 176 +/- 6 Ma, 163 +/- 9 Ma and 165 +/- 3 Ma, respectively. Corresponding in-situ average (initial) Hf-176/Hf-177 initial ratios are 0.28261 +/- 0.00003, 0.28267 +/- 0.00002 and 0.28290 +/- 0.00004 for these units and indicative of a subduction-modified mantle source. The new U-Pb ages and Hf isotope data from these oceanic and continental arc units together with regional geological constraints support the presence of a multiple subduction system within the Intra-Pontide Ocean during the Middle Jurassic.

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 microplate (i.e., the Sakarya Composite Terrane) are completely dissected by the North Anatolian Shear Zone (NASZ). Within the resulting kilometre-scale, strike-slip fault-bounded blocks, several Late Cretaceous arc-type magmatic units have been detected. In this paper, we present new geochemical d...

The Central Pontides in northern Turkey form an imbricated structural complex that consists of a number of variably metamorphic oceanic assemblages between the Istanbul-Zonguldak and Sakarya Composite terranes. The Çangaldağ Complex is a member of this unit and occurs as an E-W trending 30 km long and 15 km wide belt to the north of the Kastamonu-Boyabat Tertiary basin. The Çangaldağ Complex consists predominantly of variably deformed and metamorphosed igneous rocks ranging from felsic to mafic in compositi...
New Finite Frequency Teleseismic P wave Tomography of the Anatolian Sub continent and the Fate of the SubductedCyprean Slab
Portner, Daniel Evan; Biryol, C Berk; Delph, Jonathan R; Beck, Susan L; Zandt, George; Özacar, Atilla Arda; Eric A, Sandvol; Türkelli, Niyazi (2016-12-12)
The eastern Mediterranean region is characterized by active subduction of Tethyan lithosphere beneath the Anatolian sub-continent at the Aegean and Cyprean trenches. The subduction system is historically characterized by slab roll-back, detachment, and slab settling in the mantle transition zone. Prior mantle tomography studies reveal segmentation of the subducted Tethyan lithosphere, which is thought to have a strong control on surface volcanism and uplift across Anatolia. However, tomographic resolution, ...

The Istranca Crystalline Complex in NW Anatolia and SE Bulgaria includes structural units that differ in lithostratigraphy, metamorphism, age and structural position. They are collectively named as the "Istranca nappes" comprising from bottom to top the Sarpdere, Mahyadag. and Dogankoy Nappes. The Sarpdere Nappe consists of Lower Triassic arkosic metasandstones with slate interlayers, followed by Middle to Upper Triassic carbonates and an alternation of Upper Triassic clastics and carbonates. The Mahyada. g...
Geochemistry of the metavolcanic rocks from the Cangaldag Complex in the Central Pontides: implications for the Middle Jurassic arc-back-arc system in the Neotethyan Intra-Pontide Ocean
Cimen, Okay; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Sayıt, Kaan (2016-01-01)
The Cangaldag Complex in northern central Turkey is one of the main tectonic units of the Central Pontide Structural Complex that represents the remains of the poorly known Intra-Pontide branch of the Neotethys. It comprises low-grade metamorphic rocks of intrusive, extrusive, and volcaniclastic origin displaying a wide range of felsic to mafic compositions. Petrographically the complex consists of basalts-andesites-rhyodacites and tuffs with minor amount of gabbros and diabases. On the basis of geochemistr...
