Insights into biaxial extensional tectonics: an example from the Sandikli Graben, West Anatolia, Turkey
Cihan, M; Sarac, G; Gokce, O (Wiley, 2003-01-01)
West Anatolia, together with the Aegean Sea and the easternmost part of Europe, is one of the best examples of continental extensional tectonics. It is a complex area bounded by the Aegean-Cyprus Arc to the south and the North Anatolian Fault Zone (NAFZ) to the north. Within this complex and enigmatic framework, the Sandikli Graben (10 km wide, 30 km long) has formed at the eastern continuation of the Western Anatolian extensional province at the north-northwestward edge of the Isparta Angle. Recent studies...

An analysis of the relationship between settlements, water resources and rock types in Çankırı province
Bayraktaroğlu, Cüneyt; Toprak, Vedat; Department of Geological Engineering (2005)
This study introduces an approach that seeks a possible relationship between settlement locations, water resources and rock types. The method is applied to Çankiri province (central-north Anatolia) which covers approximately an area of 8380 km2. Three main data sets used in this study. These are settlement, water and rock type data.The methodology of the study is composed of five steps. The first step is the conversion of all water data into a standardized point data. Total number of point data for water is...
Use of sedimentary structures in the recognition of sequence boundaries in Upper Jurassic-Upper Cretaceous peritidal carbonates of the Western Taurides, Turkey
Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Altıner, Demir (Informa UK Limited, 2001-08-01)
Subtidal, intertidal, and supratidal carbonate facies are recognized in the Upper Jurassic (Kimmeridgian)-Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian) peritidal carbonates of the Fele area (Western Taurides, Turkey). Vertical stacking patterns of these facies are of a cyclical character, shallowing upward is the trend of the cyclicity in these carbonate facies. In-situ karstic breccias, collapse breccias, caliche (laminar calcrete), "Microcodium" accretion, and root casts are structures commonly indicative of third-order ...
