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 from Sulakyurt to Nigde along the western margin; (2) a relatively narrow and smaller set of disconnected plutons extending from Sivas to Camardi along the eastern margin; and (3) a very large batholith along the northern margin exposed around Yozgat.

GEOLOGY AND CHEMICAL VARIATIONS IN TOURMALINE FROM THE QUARTZ-TOURMALINE BRECCIAS WITHIN THE KERKENEZ GRANITE-MONZONITE MASSIF, CENTRAL ANATOLIAN CRYSTALLINE COMPLEX, TURKEY
Demirel, Serhat; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Topuz, Gueltekin; IŞIK, VEYSEL (2009-08-01)
A hydrothermal breccia zone 6 km long and 2 km wide, crossed by quartz-tourmaline veins, occurs to the south of the Late Cretaceous Kerkenez granite-monzonite massif in the northern part of the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex, Yozgat, Turkey. This breccia zone is characterized by numerous veins, a few millimeters to 1 meter in width, and display typical microtectonic features of multiple brecciation. Trace amounts of albite, K-feldspar, epidote, muscovite and rutile are associated with quartz and tour...
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 ...
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...
GEOLOGICAL AND GEOCHEMICAL EVIDENCE FOR A LATE CRETACEOUS CONTINENTAL ARC IN THE CENTRAL PONTIDES, NORTHERN TURKEY
Ellero, Alessandro; Ottria, Giuseppe; Sayıt, Kaan; Catanzariti, Rita; Frassi, Chiara; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Marroni, Michele; Pandolfi, Luca (2015-01-01)
In the Central Pontides (Northern Turkey), south of Tosya, a tectonic unit consisting of not-metamorphic volcanic rocks and overlying sedimentary succession is exposed inside a fault-bounded elongated block. It is restrained within a wide shear zone, where the Intra-Pontide suture zone, the Sakarya terrane and the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan suture zone are juxtaposed as result of strike-slip activity of the North Anatolian shear zone. The volcanic rocks are mainly basalts and basaltic andesites (with their pyroc...
Structural evidence for strike-slip deformation in the Izmir-Balikesir transfer zone and consequences for late Cenozoic evolution of western Anatolia (Turkey)
UZEL, BORA; SÖZBİLİR, HASAN; Ozkaymak, Caglar; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Langereis, Cornelis G. (2013-04-01)
The Izmir-Balikesir transfer zone (IBTZ) is a recently recognized strike-slip dominated shear zone that accommodates the differential deformation between the Cycladic and Menderes core complexes within the Aegean Extensional System. Here, we present new structural and kinematic data obtained from field observations and 1/25,000 scale mapping of Miocene to Recent units within the IBTZ around Izmir Bay. The results point out that the IBTZ is a transtensional brittle shear zone that affects the pre-Neogene bas...
