Development of the Kembos and Eynif structural poljes: Morphotectonic evolution of the Upper Manavgat River basin, central Taurides, Turkey
DOĞAN, UĞUR; Kocyigit, Ali; Gokkaya, Ergin (2017-02-01)
The study area is the upper Manavgat River basin. It is located in the western part of the central Taurides. Two significant geomorphic features of this basin are the Kembos and Eynif structural poljes. This study focuses on the tectonic impacts on the development of poljes and the morphotectonic evolutionary history of the study region. The data were obtained through a detailed mapping of the faults, rocks, and geomorphic features. The evolutionary history of the basin begins with the NW-SE-trending karsti...
Origin and tectonic implications of an Early Paleozoic (460-440 Ma) subduction-accretion shear zone in the northwestern Yunkai Domain, South China
Liu, Songfeng; Peng, Songbai; Kusky, Timothy; Polat, Ali; Han, Qingsen (2018-12-01)
The geological evolution of the Early Paleozoic Wuyi-Yunkai orogen in South China is a scientific question of a long-standing debate. We document the presence of a NE-NEE-striking Early Paleozoic subduction-accretion shear zone, a possible melange belt, in the northwestern Yunkai Domain. The northwestern Yunkai shear zone consists predominantly of tectonically juxtaposed fragments of Early Paleozoic flysch, arc volcanic rocks, and a forearc ophiolite. The Yunkai shear zone displays typical melange structure...
Evolution of the Neotethyan branches in the Eastern Mediterranean Petrology and ages of oceanic basalts
Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Sayıt, Kaan; Uzunçimen Keçeli, Seda (null; 2015-10-27)
The Anatolian Peninsula in the Eastern Mediterranean includes remnants of the Proto-, Paleo-, Neo- and Para-Tethys oceans. From these, the Neotethys with its various branches has been studied relatively well. Disregarding the embayments of the major oceanic strands, three main oceanic branches are distinguished by the presence of ophiolitic suture belts, separating terranes of continental crust origin (Fig. 1). From S to N these are the Southern branch of Neotethys, the ...
Pattern of normal faulting in the Gediz Graben, SW Turkey
Ciftci, N. Bozkurt; Bozkurt, Erdin (Elsevier BV, 2009-07-20)
Hanging-wall deformation of the fault systems controlling the southern margin of the Gediz Graben were investigated separately within the Plio-Quaternary and Neogene (predominantly Miocene) deposits of the graben fill. Fault styles observed in both packages share many similarities in terms of geometry and comprise conjugate fault sets that show clustering of strike orientations predominantly around WNW-ESE but also SW-NE and NW-SE directions. The main difference between the two units is observable in terms ...
Structural evidence for strike-slip deformation in the Izmir-Balikesir transfer zone and consequences for late Cenozoic evolution of western Anatolia (Turkey)
UZEL, BORA; SÖZBİLİR, HASAN; Ozkaymak, Caglar; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Langereis, Cornelis G. (2013-04-01)
The Izmir-Balikesir transfer zone (IBTZ) is a recently recognized strike-slip dominated shear zone that accommodates the differential deformation between the Cycladic and Menderes core complexes within the Aegean Extensional System. Here, we present new structural and kinematic data obtained from field observations and 1/25,000 scale mapping of Miocene to Recent units within the IBTZ around Izmir Bay. The results point out that the IBTZ is a transtensional brittle shear zone that affects the pre-Neogene bas...
