REMOBILIZATION OF 2 MELANGES IN CENTRAL ANATOLIA

1993-12-01
NORMAN, TN
Melanges are usually dated from the ages of contained blocks and of the oldest unconformably overlying cover rocks. Anomalies associated with this approach are illustrated in this study of the principal melange belts developed in Anatolia.

Evaluation of coal and water samples from Manisa-Soma-Deniş region conccerning Balkan Endemic Nephropathy and determination of Balkan Endemic Nephropathy risk
Öztürk, Mehmet Sinan; Önen, A. Pırıl; Department of Geological Engineering (2006)
The water and coal samples from the Manisa-Soma-Deniş region were studied on the basis of their basic characteristics, inorganic and organic parameters. Coal samples were determined as low-quality lignite. They have high concentrations of arsenic, uranium and lead. The organics in the coal samples are of aliphatic hydrocarbons and their derivatives (alkanes and alcohols), methyls, phthalates, naphtalenes and benzenes. They are inactive and low in concentrations. Water samples have basic characteristics with...
EVIDENCE AGAINST THE CORE COVER INTERPRETATION OF THE SOUTHERN SECTOR OF THE MENDERES MASSIF, WEST TURKEY
Bozkurt, Erdin; WINCHESTER, JA (Wiley, 1993-01-01)
The Menderes Massif, in western Anatolia, has been described as a lithological succession comprising a basal 'Precambrian gneissic core of sedimentary origin' overlain in sequence by 'Palaeozoic schist' and 'Mesozoic-Cenozoic marble' forming the envelope. The boundary between core and schist envelope was interpreted as a major unconformity, the 'Supra-Pan-African unconformity'. By contrast, our field observations and geochemical data show that around the southern side of Besparmak Mountain, north of Selimiy...
Structural evolution of the Gediz Graben, SW Turkey: temporal and spatial variation of the graben basin
Ciftci, N. B.; Bozkurt, Erdin (Wiley, 2010-12-01)
The structural evolution of the Miocene to Recent Gediz Graben is intimately related to the evolution of its southern margin. This margin is shaped by a time-transgressive, composite structure that possesses flat-ramp geometry with three separate dip domains: a low-angle shallow segment; a steeper middle segment; and a low-angle deeper segment. This geometry was probably produced by one of two mechanisms, which operated perpendicular to the general trend of the graben, resulting in gradual back-rotation fol...
Rapid cooling history of a Neotethyan ophiolite: Evidence for contemporaneous subduction initiation and metamorphic sole formation

The Beywhir-Hoyran Nappes, including Mesozoic carbonate platform rocks, deepsea sediments, and ophiolite-related units, crop out extensively on the western limb of the Isparta Angle in the Central Taurides, Turkey. The ophiolite-related rocks are represented by variably serpentinized harzburgitic mantle tectonites, tectonically underlain by a subophiolitic metamorphic sole and melange. The harzburgitic mantle tectonites and metamorphic sole are intruded by undeformed isolated dikes. Protoliths of the metamo...
Sequence stratigraphic architecture of Mut basin along ramp to reefal margin transition and its diagenetic imprint
Derman, H. Armağan; Norman, Teoman; Department of Geological Engineering (2003)
The whole Mediterranean was a site of carbonate deposition during Miocene. Unlike other Miocene basins in the Mediteranean, the importance of Mut Basin lies in its tectonically undisturbed nature that provides excellent exposures to study sequence stratigraphic architecture and carbonate sedimentology. Opening of Mut Basin began during Oligocene; carbonate deposition started during Early Miocene. The pre-Miocene rocks are characterized by (from bottom to top), 1. ophiolites and Mesozoic limestones, 2. Eocen...
