We compared the stratigraphic formations along the southern margin of the Black Sea using 196 nannoplankton ages determined in the Western and Central Pontides and 112 new samples from the Eastern Pontides. We inferred that the I. stanbul and Sakarya zones were amalgamated prior to the Early Cretaceous. Extensional subsidence migrated eastwards along the Pontides from the Barremian to the Paleocene. The eastwards younging of the Cretaceous magmatism suggested that the eastern Black Sea Basin is younger. Locally, angular unconformities and a stratigraphic gap testify to the Late Albian uplift of the Central Pontides as a consequence of the collision of an oceanic edifice. Cretaceous Oceanic Red Beds are marker beds of Santonian age along the much of the Pontides and are of mainly Campanian age within the Eastern Pontides. The Middle Campanian-Paleocene was a non-volcanic period characterized by extensional subsidence mainly along the eastern Black Sea Basin. The end of Cretaceous volcanism can be correlated with a southwards subduction jump. Syn-compressional basins show that contraction started during the Ypresian along the entire Pontide belt. Eocene volcanism started earlier in the north (Lutetian) than in the south (Bartonian) of the Eastern Pontides. This propagation of syn-collisional volcanism could have resulted from slab steepening under the Eastern Pontides.

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 diel vertical distribution of zooplankton in the southeast Black Sea
Erkan, F.; Gücü, Ali Cemal; Zagorodnyaya, J. (2000-01-01)
The diel changes in the vertical distribution of zooplankton in the southeast Black Sea were described in this study. The zooplankton were sampled using two different sampling methods throughout one day in October 1996 and July 1997 at the same station. The zooplankton counts, the length measurements and biomass estimates showed that the zooplankton in the southeast Black Sea is dominated by small organisms, among which Noctiluca scintillans is the dominant species. In the vertical distribution of zooplankt...
Cross-sectional anatomy and geodynamic evolution of the Central Pontide orogenic belt (northern Turkey)
Hippolyte, JC; Espurt, Nikolas; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; SANĞU, ERCAN; Mueller, C. (2016-01-01)
Geophysical data allowed the construction of a similar to 250-km-long lithospheric-scale balanced cross section of the southern Black Sea margin (Espurt et al. in Lithosphere 6:26-34, 2014). In this paper, we combine structural field data, stratigraphic data, and fault kinematics analyses with the 70-km-long onshore part of the section to reconstruct the geodynamic evolution of the Central Pontide orogen. These data reveal new aspects of the structural evolution of the Pontides since the Early Cretaceous. T...
The use of back trajectory cluster analysis with PM2.5 composition at the eastern black sea of Turkey
Balcılar, İlker; Zararsız, Abdullah; Doğan, Güray; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2017-11-04)
In this study, the influence of synoptic-scale atmospheric transport patterns on observed levels of trace elements at Eastern Black Sea region of Turkey was examined. Daily PM2.5 samples were collected at station (40°32’34”N, 39°16’57”E) on the Eastern Black Sea region of Turkey and collected samples were analyzed with ICP-MS for trace element composition. Five-day long back trajectories for March 2011 to December 2013 were calculated for 3 different arrival heights, 100m, 500m and 1500m, and combination of...
