Geochemical signatures of granitoids associated with skarns in central Anatolia

Many studies have shown systematic correlations between the composition of plutons worldwide and the metal contents of associated skarns. This is the first report of similar correlations between plutons and the skarns of the Akdagmadeni, Akcakisla, and Keskin districts in Central Anatolia. Herein, die genetic associations of skarn occurrences are investigated using the geochemical compositions of the intrusives.


Crust–mantle interaction in western Turkey: Implications from Sr and Nd isotope geochemistry of Tertiary and Quaternary volcanics
Güleç, Nilgün Türkan (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 1991-01-01)
The isotopic composition of Sr and Nd together with the abundance data for major and trace elements are reported for Tertiary to Quaternary volcanics from a variety of localities in western Turkey. These data are used to evaluate the role of crust–mantle interaction in the petrogenesis of the western Turkish volcanics. The major and trace element chemistry reveals a general change in the nature of volcanism from dominantly calc-alkaline in Tertiary to alkaline in Quaternary times. The calc-alkaline rocks ar...
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...
Geoarchaelogical investigation of central anatolian caravanserais using gis
Ertepınar Kaymakcı, Pnar; Toprak, Vedat; Department of Geological Engineering (2005)
This study comprises analysis of geological, geomorphological constraints that played role in the site selection of caravanserais. In order to do this, 15 caravanserais located along a route from Nevşehir-Aksaray-Konya to Beyşehir were used. The data used in the study include a caravanserai database, lithological maps, and digital elevation model of the area. GIS analyses performed in the study are proximity, visibility, and probability distribution (PDA). The first step is the generation of the ancient tra...
Mineralization events in a collision-related setting: The central anatolian crystalline complex, Turkey
Kuscu, I; Erler, A (Informa UK Limited, 1998-06-01)
Examination of mineral deposits in the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex provides broad new insights regarding their genesis. Collision- and post-collision-related magmatic processes during closure of the northern branch of the Neotethyan Ocean, caused by northward subduction of the oceanic crust beneath the Sakarya Microcontinent in the Late Cretaceous-Eocene, led to the formation of several types of mineral deposits. These include: (1) skarn-type deposits (Pb-Zn, Fe, and Fe-W skarns); (2) vein-type de...
Palaeomagnetic evolution of the Cankiri Basin (central Anatolia, Turkey): implications for oroclinal bending due to indentation
Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Langereis, Cor; White, Stan; van Dijk, Paul (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2003-05-01)
Palaeomagnetic data in combination with palaeostress data and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility orientations are utilized to develop a tectonic evolutionary model for the Early Tertiary part of the Omega(omega)-shaped Cankiri Basin (Turkey). The results reveal clockwise rotations in the northeast and anticlockwise rotations in the west and southeastern corner of the basin. The magnetic inclinations indicate a northward drift of the Cankiri Basin and support an indentation model for the Kirsehir Block. I...
