Tectonic evolution of the Cretaceous Ankara Ophiolitic Melange during the Late Cretaceous to pre-Miocene interval in Central Anatolia, Turkey

The chaotic tectonic belt, which is distinguished in northern Anatolia, is called the - Ankara Accretionary Complex - in the Ankara region, central Anatolia. The belt is differentiated into three imbricated tectonic subbelts, namely, pre-Triassic metamorphics, Melange with calcareous blocks and Cretaceous melange with ophiolitic blocks (Ankara Ophiolitic Melange).
