Structure and recent evolution of the Hazar Basin: a strike-slip basin on the East Anatolian Fault, Eastern Turkey
Moreno, D. Garcia; Hubert-Ferrari, Aurelia; Moernaut, Jasper; Fraser, J. G.; Boes, Xavier; Van Daele, Maarten; Avşar, Ulaş; Cagatay, N.; De Batıst, Marc (Wiley, 2011-04-01)
The Hazar Basin is a 25 km-long, 7 km-wide and 216 m-deep depression located on the central section of the East Anatolian Fault zone (eastern Turkey) and predominantly overlain by Lake Hazar. This basin has been described previously as a pull-apart basin because of its rhombic shape and an apparent fault step-over between the main fault traces situated at the southwestern and northeastern ends of the lake. However, detailed structural investigation beneath Lake Hazar has not been undertaken previously to ve...
Lineament analysis from satellite images, north-west of Ankara
Sarp, Gülcan; Toprak, Vedat; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2005)
The purposes of this study are to extract lineaments from satellite images in order to contribute to the understanding of the faults. Landsat image is used for the analysis which is processed for both automated and manual extraction. During manual extraction four methods (filtering, PCA, band rationing and color composites) are used. Comparison of the two output maps indicated that manual extraction produced better results. Manually extracted lineament map is tested with the fault map of the area compiled f...
Global perturbation of the marine calcium cycle during the Permian-Triassic transition
Silva-Tamayo, Juan Carlos; Lau, Kimberly; Jost, Adam B.; Payne, Jonathan L.; Wignall, Paul B.; Newton, Robert J.; Eisenhauer, Anton; Depaolo, Donald J.; Brown, Shaun; Maher, Kate; Lehrmann, Daniel J.; Altıner, Demir; Yu, Meiyi; Richoz, Sylvain; Paytan, Adina (Geological Society of America, 2018-07-01)
A negative shift in the calcium isotopic composition of marine carbonate rocks spanning the end-Permian extinction horizon in South China has been used to argue for an ocean acidification event coincident with mass extinction. This interpretation has proven controversial, both because the excursion has not been demonstrated across multiple, widely separated localities, and because modeling results of coupled carbon and calcium isotope records illustrate that calcium cycle imbalances alone cannot account for...
Mafic microgranular enclaves and interaction between felsic and mafic magmas in the agacoren intrusive suite: Evidence from petrographic features and mineral chemistry
Kadioglu, Yusuf Kagan; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan (Informa UK Limited, 1996-01-01)
The Agacoren Intrusive Suite is exposed as a large intrusive body over ∼500 km2 east of Lake Tuz in central Anatolia and consists of the Cokumkaya gabbro, the Agacoren granitoid, and young dikes. The Agacoren granitoid is the predominant lithology of the Agacoren Intrusive Suite, and is differentiated into several subunits ranging in composition from monzonite, through granite, to alkali feldspar granite. The Cokumkaya gabbro occurs as stocks enclosed in the Agacoren granitoid; individual bodies range in si...
Lithospheric structural control on inversion of the southern margin of the Black Sea Basin, Central Pontides, Turkey
Espurt, Nicolas; Hippolyte, Jean-Claude; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; SANĞU, ERCAN (GeoScienceWorld, 2014-02-01)
To illustrate the structural evolution of the Black Sea Basin in the context of Neotethyan subduction and subsequent continental collisions, we present the first lithosphere-scale, similar to 250-km-long, balanced and restored cross section across its southern continental margin, the Central Pontides. Cross-section construction and restoration are based on field, seismic-reflection, geophysical, and apatite fission-track data. The structure of the onshore Pontides belt is predominantly controlled by inverte...
