Bala (Ankara) Earthquakes: Implications for Shallow Crustal Deformation in Central Anatolian Section of the Anatolian Platelet (Turkey)
Tan, Onur; Tapirdamaz, M. Cengiz; Ergintav, Semih; Inan, Sedat; Iravul, Yildiz; SAATÇILAR, RUHİ; Tuzel, Bekir; Tarancioglu, Adil; Karakisa, Salih; Kartal, Recai F.; Zunbul, Sami; Yanik, Kenan; Kaplan, Mehmet; Saroglu, Fuat; Kocyigit, Ali; ALTUNEL, ERHAN; MERAL ÖZEL, NURCAN (2010-01-01)
Central Anatolia is quiet in terms of seismic activity, and rarely earthquakes up to magnitude 5.6 occur in the inner part of the Anatolian block or Anatolian platelet. Southeast of Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, two ...
Geochemistry of Fluid Inclusions in Travertines From Western and Northern Turkey: Inferences on the Role of Active Faults in Fluids Circulation
Rizzo, Andrea Luca; Uysal, I. Tonguc; MUTLU, HALİM; Unal-Imer, Ezgi; Dirik, Kadir; YÜCE, GALİP; Caracausi, Antonio; Italiano, Francesco; Misseri, Mariagrazia; TEMEL, ABİDİN; Bayari, Serdar; ÖZYURT, NACİYE NUR; Zhao, Jian-xin; DENİZ, KIYMET (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2019-11-01)
The understanding of the relationship between the geochemistry of fluids circulating during travertine deposition and the presence of active faults is crucial for evaluating the seismogenetic potential of an area. Here we ...
Rapid cooling history of a Neotethyan ophiolite: Evidence for contemporaneous subduction initiation and metamorphic sole formation
PARLAK, OSMAN; Dunkl, Istvan; KARAOĞLAN, FATİH; Kusky, Timothy M.; Zhang, Chao; Wang, Lu; Koepke, Juergen; Billor, Zeki; Hames, Willis E.; ŞİMŞEK, EMRAH; Simsek, Gokce; ŞİMŞEK, TUĞÇE; Ozturk, Selena Ezgi (Geological Society of America, 2019-11-01)
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 oph...
Melanges through time: Life cycle of the world's largest Archean melange compared with Mesozoic and Paleozoic subduction-accretion-collision melanges
Kusky, Timothy; Wang, Junpeng; Wang, Lu; Huang, Bo; Ning, Wenbin; Fu, Dong; Peng, Hongtao; Deng, Hao; Polat, Ali; Zhong, Yating; Shi, Guanzhong (Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01)
Melanges represent a significant component of collisional and accretionary orogenic belts. We present a comparison of subduction-accretion melanges of different ages to test how melange-forming processes at convergent marg...
Are U-Th Dates Correlated With Historical Records of Earthquakes? Constraints From Coseismic Carbonate Veins Within the North Anatolian Fault Zone
KARABACAK, VOLKAN; Uysal, I. Tonguc; MUTLU, HALİM; Unal-Imer, Ezgi; Dirik, R. Kadir; Feng, Yue-xing; AKISKA, SİNAN; Aydogdu, Ismail; Zhao, Jian-xin (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2019-07-01)
U-Th dating of carbonate veins in connection with active tectonics has recently been used as an attractive tool for constraining the absolute timing of late Quaternary crustal deformations. In this study, for the first tim...
Identification of the Neoarchean Jianping pyroxenite-melange in the Central Orogenic Belt, North China Craton: A fore-arc accretional assemblage
Peng, Hongtao; Kusky, Timothy; Deng, Hao; Wang, Lu; Wang, Junpeng; Huang, Yang; Huang, Bo; Ning, Wenbin (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
Melanges are widespread in accretionary and collisional orogens at convergent plate margins. We document a Neoarchean melange belt exposed in the Jianping Complex, North China Craton (NCC). The melange belt contains a stru...
Geochemistry of middle-late Mesozoic mafic intrusions in the eastern North China Craton: New insights on lithospheric thinning and decratonization
Wan, Le; Zeng, Zuoxun; Kusky, Timothy; Asimow, Paul; He, Chicheng; Liu, Yongjiang; Yang, Shuang; Xu, Shaopeng (2019-09-01)
We present detailed geochronological, geochemical and Sr-Nd-Pb isotopic data for late Mesozoic mafic intrusions in the Taili region (western Liaodong Province) of the eastern North China Craton (NCC). We obtained laser-abl...
Structural relationships and kinematics of the Neoarchean Dengfeng forearc and accretionary complexes, southern North China craton
Huang, Bo; Kusky, Timothy; Wang, Lu; Polat, Ali; Fu, Dong; Windley, Brian; Deng, Hao; Wang, Junpeng (Geological Society of America, 2019-05-01)
The ca. 2.54-2.51 Ga Dengfeng greenstone belt in the southern section of the Central orogenic belt of the North China craton consists of structurally juxtaposed slices of meta-ultramafic, metamafic, and felsic igneous rock...
The Mississippian in the Central and Eastern Taurides (Turkey): constraints on the tectonic setting of the Tauride-Anatolide Platform
Goencueoglu, Mehmet Cemal; Capkinoglu, Senol; Guersu, Semih; Noble, Paula; Turhan, Necati; Tekin, Ugur Kagan; Okuyucu, Cengiz; Goencueoglu, Yakut (2007-10-01)
Data from the Mississippian tectono-stratigraphic units in the Tauride-Anatolide Platform, Central and Eastern Taurides, reveal that this region underwent incipient back-arc extension during the Variscan orogeny, but that ...
Geology of a Neoarchean suture: Evidence from the Zunhua ophiolitic melange of the Eastern Hebei Province, North China Craton
Wang, Junpeng; Li, Xiawen; Ning, Wenbin; Kusky, Timothy M.; Wang, Lu; Polat, Ali; Deng, Hao (Geological Society of America, 2019-11-01)
Melanges characterize Phanerozoic convergent plate boundaries, but have rarely been reported from Archean orogens. In this paper, we document a Neoarchean ophiolitic melange in the Eastern Hebei Province of the North China...
