Gabbroic rocks crop out commonly in different localities of the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex and are interpreted by many researchers as the remnants of a Neotethyan ophiolitic suite now observed as roof-pendants in the granitoids of the complex. In this study, the structural position of the gabbroic rocks within one of the granitoids of the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex, namely the Agacoren Granitoid, is determined by geological and aeromagnetic data from the central part of the pluton. The gabbroic rocks have sinuous contacts with the Agacoren Granitoid and they display a gradual change in composition and texture from gabbro at the top of the hills to diorite at the foot of the hills towards the contact with granitoid. Power spectra, high-and low-pass filtered aeromagnetic and pseudogravimetric anomalies were produced using geophysical methods. A two-dimensional model constructed from the high pass-filtered anomalies, with the control of the in situ susceptibility data and the low-pass filtered anomaly, suggests existence of a shallow conical-shaped and deeply buried gabbroic body. The deep body extends down to deeper levels of the upper crust and, given the textural and compositional features which suggest magma mixing, is interpreted as an intrusion coeval with the Agacoren Granitoid.

Thermoluminescence properties of fluorescent materials used in commercial lamps
Bulur, Enver; Wieser, A; Figel, M; Ozer, AM (1996-01-01)
The dosimetric properties of eight different fluorescent materials (FM) used in production of commercial fluorescent lamps were studied by thermoluminescence (TL). Taking into account the criteria for TL phosphors to be useful for radiation dosimetry, radiation sensitivity, thermal stability, shape of the glow curves, and effect of incandescence, UV and daylight on irradiated and non irradiated material were investigated. It was observed that most of the material can be used for radiation doses from 10 mu G...

The closely related assemblage of igneous and metamorphic rocks that lie within a triangular area approximately bounded by the Tuzgolu Fault, the Ecemis Fault and the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan Suture and between the lines connecting Ankara, Sivas and Nigde is called the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex (CACC). The granitoids cropping out within the CACC can be divided areally into three groups: (1) a large number of individual small plutons which form an arcuate set and curve from NE-SW to NW-SE and extend...
SEISMIC STRATIGRAPHY AND LATE QUATERNARY SEDIMENTS IN INNER AND MID-SHELF AREAS OF EASTERN MERSIN BAY, NORTHEASTERN MEDITERRANEAN-SEA
ERGIN, M; OKYAR, M; TIMUR, K (Elsevier BV, 1992-02-29)
High-resolution shallow-seismic reflection (Uniboom) profiles obtained in inner and mid-shelf areas of eastern Mersin Bay (Turkey, northeastern Mediterranean) show that the sedimentary column comprises two major and distinct lithological sequences (C and B) separated by a reflector (R) which is interpreted as the pre-Holocene surface. The upper sedimentary sequence (C) is thought to represent roughly the Holocene and is characterized by parallel/divergent to sigmoidal reflection patterns above (Unit 1) and ...
Electrical and structural characterization of bismuth thin films
Durkaya, Göksel; Parlak, Mehmet; Department of Physics (2005)
Electrical and structural properties of Bismuth thin films were studied simultaneously. Electrical properties of the Bismuth thin films have been characterized by measuring temperature dependent conductivity and Hall effect. Structural analysis were carried out by X-ray diffraction technique and using a room temperature Atomic Force Microscope (RT-AFM).
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.
