Near-contemporaneous suites of mafic lavas from Sivas, Central Anatolia record different petrogenetic histories on the eastern and western sides of a major regional suture marked by the Kizihrmak River, The Sivas basaltic suite has major and trace element compositions suggesting derivation from an anhydrous peridotitic mantle source region. Basaltic trachyandesites in this group are related by up to similar to 65% fractional crystallization of the observed anhydrous mineral phases from a frequently-erupted basaltic parent with similar to 9 wt.% MgO. Chondrite-normalized Tb/Yb values indicate that the basaltic magmas likely originate from melting peridotite at pressures near the spinel-garnet transition. Clinopyroxene with a range of Al-vi/Al-iv values suggest multiple stages of mineral growth, consistent with a mantle origin followed by fractional crystallization at shallow crustal levels. In contrast, Sivas basanites have higher abundances of key incompatible elements that suggest a source area in the subcontinental lithosphere with hydrous metasomatic mineral phases. Clinopyroxene in Sivas basanites have Al-vi/Al-iv values that cluster around 0.25, suggesting the magmas stalled at mid-crustal depths prior to rapid ascent and eruption. High abundances of incompatible major and trace elements in the most magnesian basanites show that the basanite lavas are not related to one another or to the basalt suite by fractionation. The thermal environment that led to formation of parental magmas for both the basalt suite and the basanites likely reflects ascent of asthenospheric material around and through torn slabs beneath Central Anatolia, providing heat to melt both ascending mantle and regionally metasomatized subcontinental lithosphere. This process is enhanced by recent trans-tensional deformation in the Anatolian plate that allows mafic melts to rise to shallow depths on both sides of the Kizilirmak River.

Geochemical constraints on the Cenozoic, OIB-type alkaline volcanic rocks of NW Turkey: Implications for mantle sources and melting processes
ALDANMAZ, ERCAN; KÖPRÜBAŞI, NEZİHİ; GÜRER, ÖMER FEYZİ; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Gourgaud, Alan (Elsevier BV, 2006-01-01)
The volcanic province of North-West Turkey contains a number of intra-continental alkaline volcanic eruption sequences formed along the localized extensional basins developed in relation with the Late Cenozoic extensional processes. The volcanic suite comprises the extracted melt products of adiabatic decompression melting of the mantle that are represented by small-volume intra-continental plate volcanic rocks of alkaline olivine basalts and basanites with compositions representative of mantle-derived, pri...
Petrogenesis of the Neogene-Quaternary mafic lavas from the Tunceli-Elazığ region (Eastern Turkey)
Aktağ, Alican; Sayıt, Kaan; Department of Geological Engineering (2022-1-27)
The most primitive members of the Late Miocene Tunceli and Pleistocene Elazığ mafic volcanics within the Eastern Anatolian Volcanic Province (EAVP) preserve details regarding the chemical geodynamics of eastern Anatolia. This study, therefore, primarily aims to establish the chemical composition of the source components that have contributed to these volcanics to enhance the understanding of the nature of mantle domains beneath eastern Anatolia. Quantitative modelings suggest that at least three distinct c...
Geochemistry, tectono-magmatic discrimination and radiolarian ages of basic extrusives within the Izmir-Ankara Suture Belt (NW Turkey): Time constraints for the neotethyan evolution
Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Tekin, U. Kagan (2006-06-01)
The Dagkuplu Melange in the Central Sakarya Valley represents the northernmost outcrops of the Izmir-Ankara Suture Belt in northwest Anatolia. In addition to blocks and slivers of serpentinite, gabbro, blueschist, neritic and pelagic limestones, it includes blocks of basic volcanic rocks associated with radiolarian cherts, pelagic carbonates and mudstones.
GEOCHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF GRANITOIDS ALONG THE WESTERN MARGIN OF THE CENTRAL ANATOLIAN CRYSTALLINE COMPLEX AND THEIR TECTONIC IMPLICATIONS

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 ...
