The East Anatolian Fault (EAF) is a major left-lateral strike-slip fault accommodating with the conjugate North Anatolian Fault the westward extrusion of the Anatolian Plate away from the Arabia-Eurasia collision zone. The East Anatolian Fault ruptured over most of its length during the 19th century in a series of magnitude ~7 earthquakes. During the 20th century this fault was less active with only two events of magnitude greater than 6. This absence of large earthquakes has resulted in relatively little a...
Paleoseismic record obtained by coring a sag-pond along the North Anatolian Fault (Turkey)

Shallow lakes along minor structural bends or discontinuities of strike-slip faults are not usually paleoseismological target sites. In the present study, we show that a 2-m-deep, 700-m-long lake that is cross-cut by the North Anatolian Fault contains a reliable paleoseimological record that can be obtained through coring. The North Anatolian Fault is a major strike-slip fault in Turkey, and it last ruptured across the Asagitepecik Lake in 1939, with a slip of about 6 m. Seismic lines still show remains of ...
Paleoseismic trenching, slip-rates and kinematics of a high-angle rift-transform junction, Húsavík, Iceland
Harrington, John; Jonsson, Sigurjon; Avşar, Ulaş; Klinger, Yann (null; 2014-12-19)
We present results of recent fieldwork related to the Húsavík-Flatey Fault (HFF), a ~100 km dextral fault on the southern boundary of the Tjörnes Fracture Zone in North Iceland through which the Kolbinskey spreading ridge is connected with Iceland's Northern Volcanic Zone (NVZ). High-angle rift-transform junctions are rarely exposed on land, and tectonic studies of them are relatively rare (e.g. Mouslopoulou, et. al., 2007) - accordingly, the HFF provides an excellent field laboratory for the study of strik...
Paleobathymetric evolution of the miocene deposits of Gömbe and Aksu Basins, Antalya, Turkey
Şiş, Fatih Seçkin; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Department of Geological Engineering (2018)
The Late Cenozoic Antalya Basins, located at the eastern part of the Beydağları Platform, within the Isparta Angle, unconformably developed on Mesozoic autochthonous carbonate platforms in the western Taurides. Aksu Basin developed in the inner part of the Isparta Angle and bounded by Aksu Thrust at the east. Gömbe Basin located at the western limb of the Isparta Angle and developed as a foreland basin in front of the Lycin Nappes on the Beydağları Platform. During their evolution, these basins experienced ...
Paleobathymetric evolution of the Miocene deposits of the Gombe sector of the Lycian Foreland and Aksu basins in Antalya, Turkey
Sis, Fatih Seckin; Kouwenhoven, Tanja; Koç, Ayten; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin (2020-01-01)
The evolution of the Lycian Foreland and Aksu basins are associated with the Africa-Eurasia convergence and collision of intervening continental blocks. Both basins developed around the Beydaglari, a Mesozoic carbonate platform, which constitutes the main component and western limb of the Isparta Angle. The Gombe Basin is an integral part of the Lycian Foreland Basin that comprises mainly Eocene to Late Miocene turbidites, onto which the allochthonous Lycian and Antalya nappes thrust over. The Aksu Basin, h...
