Mineralogy, chemistry and potential utilization of clays from coal deposits in the Kutahya province, Western Turkey

Tuerkmenoglu, Asuman Guenal

Kutahya graben is one of the largest E-W trending grabens of Western Turkey consisting of Tavsanli and Seyitomer sub-basins filled with Neogene continental deposits. These deposits contain economic lignite seams and the clay samples investigated in this study are closely related to the commercial lignite deposits since they occur underlying or overlying the major coal seams and also intercalated with them.

The Madenkoy-Siir region lies in southeastern Anatolia, Turkey to the northeast of Siirt. The study area is in the southeastern Anatolian Thrust Belt, which forms the boundary between the Border Folds on the northern edge of the Arabian plate and the Taurids. In the region, limestones of the Midyat Group of Eocene-Miocene age and alternating marls and sandstones of the Lice Formation of Early-Middle Miocene age are the autochthonous units. Three thrust slices were emplaced over the autochthonous units durin...
Mineralogical and sorption characteristics of Ankara Clay as a landfill liner
Sezer, GA; Turkmenoglu, AG; Göktürk, Emine Hale (Elsevier BV, 2003-05-01)
Mineralogical and sorption capacity characteristics of Ankara Clay, which is widespread around the Ankara region, Turkey, have been studied for the purpose of its potential use as a landfill liner. This clay is Pliocene in age and was deposited in a fluvial environment. Mineralogically it consists mainly of illite, smectite, chlorite and kaolinite minerals. The non- clay minerals, quartz, feldspars, calcite and Fe-Ti oxides are detected. Its cation exchange capacity (CEC) is determined as 41 meq/100 g using...
Tectonic evolution of the Gediz Graben: field evidence for an episodic, two-stage extension in western Turkey
Bozkurt, Erdin (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2004-01-01)
Western Turkey is one of the most spectacular regions of widespread active continental extension in the world. The most prominent structures of this region are E-W-trending grabens (e.g. Gediz and Buyuk Menderes grabens) and intervening horsts, exposing the Menderes Massif. This paper documents the result of a recent field campaign (field geological mapping and structural analysis) along the southern margin of the modern Gediz Graben of Pliocene (similar to 5 Ma) age. This work provides field evidence that ...
Volcano stratigraphy and petrogenesis of the Nemrut stratovolcano (East Anatolian High Plateau): The most recent post-collisional volcanism in Turkey
Ozdemir, Y; Karaoglu, O; Tolluoglu, AO; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan (Elsevier BV, 2006-02-28)
The Nemrut stratovolcano, with its well defined summit caldera, is the most recent volcanic eruption center (1441 A.D.) in the East Anatolian High Plateau, one of the best examples of an active colllision zone. Widespread volcanism has been active in this region for the last similar to 10 Ma, producing large volumes of lavas and pyroelastics covering a broad belt, across the Bitlis Suture Zone, from the Anatolian plate in the north to the Arabian plate in the south.
Tsunamis in the Sea of Marmara - Historical documents for the past, models for the future
Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Altinok, Y; Ozbay, I; Imamura, F (Elsevier BV, 2002-10-15)
More than 30 tsunami events have impacted the coasts of the Sea of Marmara in the past two millennium, clustering in Izmit Bay, the shores of istanbul, Gemlik Bay, the shores of the Kapidak and Gelibolu Peninsulas. With respect to the last well-known tsunami, the Izmit tsunami of 17 August, 1999, available field survey run-up data and marine surveys provide an opportunity to evaluate how these events were triggered. The main purpose of this study is to determine the slope failure potential as a possible tsu...
