Here we reassess the timing and amount of rotation of the eastern limb of the Aegean orocline, located in SW Turkey. The current model for this orocline involves a 25-30 degrees counterclockwise (CCW) rotation of the Bey Daglari region, which exposes upper Cretaceous to Eocene platform carbonates and lower Miocene flysch deposits. In this model the rotation has to postdate a Miocene remagnetization, which would not exclude non-synchroneity between rotations of the western and eastern limbs of the Aegean orocline. To test this model a detailed palaeomagnetic study was conducted on lower Miocene strata in the Bey Daglari area. Two (composite) sections were sampled near Korkuteli and Dogantas, spanning the lower Miocene foreland basin stratigraphy from the Aquitanian unconformity with the Bey Daglari limestones to the uppermost Burdigalian-lowermost Langhian, and a wide array of palaeomagnetic analyses were obtained.

PREPARATION OF PEDESTRIAN EVACUATION TIME MAPS FOR SOUTHERN COASTS OF BODRUM PENINSULA, TURKEY
Çelikbaş, Büşra; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Department of Geological Engineering (2022-1-28)
Historical records reveal that Turkey coasts faced with a considerable number of tsunamis in its past. Although the tsunamis in the seas surrounding Turkey are not as catastrophic as the ones in Pacific Ocean, still they may cause substantial damage to the highly populated touristic coastal places. Eastern Mediterranean Sea and Aegean Sea are in the seismically active region of Turkey. Therefore, numerous earthquakes and associated tsunamis are threatening the western coasts of Turkey. Recently, two importa...
Evaluation of GRACE based groundwater storage change information at Konya Closed Basin Turkey using remote sensing and in situ measurements
Yılmaz, Koray Kamil; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (null; 2016-12-12)
The Konya Closed Basin (KCB) located in Central Anatolia, Turkey, is the primary grain producer in Turkey and covers an area of approximately 50000km2. The lack of sufficient surface water resources and recently changing crop patterns have led to over-exploitation of groundwater resources and resulted in significant drop in groundwater levels. For this reason monitoring of the groundwater storage change in this region is critical to understand the potential of the current water resources and to devise effec...

Defining additional stratigraphy in paleoseismic trenches by 2d logging of magnetic susceptibility :A paleoseismic investigation near lake Ladik, North Anatolian fault, Turkey
Fraser, Jeff; Hubert-ferrari, Aurelia; Vanneste, Kris; Avşar, Ulaş; Altınok, Sevgi (null; 2008-12-19)
The North Anatolian Fault (NAF) is a dextral strike-slip plate-boundary fault zone extending ~1400 km in an arc across northern Turkey. We opened a paleoseismic trench ~2.7 km NW of Destek village on a segment which ruptured (for ~280 km) in the 1943 Ladik Earthquake (Mw:7.7). Sediments exposed in the trench yielded information on the timing of at least 6 paleoearthquake events during the last 3000 years in addition to evidence of the 1943 event. The trench was excavated across an uphill-facing fault scarp ...
Modeling of a historical earthquake in Erzincan, Turkey (Ms similar to 7.8, in 1939) using regional seismological information obtained from a recent event
Karim Zadeh Naghshineh, Shaghayegh; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül (2018-06-01)
Located within a basin structure, at the conjunction of North East Anatolian, North Anatolian and Ovacik Faults, Erzincan city center (Turkey) is one of the most hazardous regions in the world. Combination of the seismotectonic and geological settings of the region has resulted in series of significant seismic activities including the 1939 (Ms similar to 7.8) as well as the 1992 (Mw = 6.6) earthquakes. The devastative 1939 earthquake occurred in the pre-instrumental era in the region with no available local...
