Lower Cretaceous marine microbialites of central Tauride and western Pontide carbonate platforms, Turkey



Upper Jurassic-Lower Cretaceous depositional environments and evolution of the Bilecik (Sakarya Zone) and Tauride carbonate platforms, Turkey
Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Altıner, Demir (2016-05-01)
Three Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous carbonate platform stratigraphic sections have been studied in central western Turkey (Bilecik carbonate platform at Bilecik and Saricakaya) and in the Taurides in southern Turkey (Tauride carbonate platform at Beysehir) by using sedimentological and cyclostratigraphical methods. One section was analyzed by detailed magnetic susceptibility measurements. Peritidal carbonates on both platforms display cyclic patterns throughout the sections and do not contain any silicicla...
Upper Cretaceous planktonic stratigraphy of the Göynük composite section, western Tethys (Bolu province, Turkey)
Wolfgring, Erik; Shaha, Liu; Wagreich, Michael; Bohm, Katharina; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer (null; 2017-08-26)
Upper Cretaceous strata exposed at Göynük (Mudurnu-Göynük basin, Bolu Province, Northwestern Anatolia, Turkey) provide a composite geological record from the Upper Santonian to the Maastrichtian. Deposits in this area originate from the Sakarya continent, therefore, a western Tethyan palaeogeographic setting with a palaeolatitude of a bit less than 30 degrees north can be reconstructed. Grey shales and clayey marls are exposed at Göynük and do frequently show volcanic intercalations in the oldest parts of t...
Upper Cretaceous volcaniclastic complexes and calcareous plankton biostratigraphy in the Western Pontides, NW Turkey
Boehm, Katharina; Wagreich, Michael; Wolfgring, Erik; Tuysuz, Okan; Gier, Susanne; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer (2019-01-01)
This study describes and interprets Upper Cretaceous volcaniclastics interbedded with hemipelagic to pelagic limestones, marls, and turbidites from the Western Pontides, northwestern Turkey. The Derekey Formation, the Unaz Formation (red pelagic limestone unit), and the Cambu Formation can be distinguished, overlain by the turbiditic Akveren Formation. Biostratigraphic ages from the predominantly volcaniclastic Derekoy Formation indicate Turonian (Dicarinella concavata planktonic foraminifera zone, CC13/UC8...
Middle Jurassic Lower Cretaceous biostratigraphy in the Central Pontides (Turkey): Remarks on paleogeography and tectonic evolution
Rojay, Fuat Bora; Altıner, Demir (1998-08-01)
The deposition of Jurassic-Lower Cretaceous carbonates in the Pontides was controlled mainly by the evolution of an Atlantic-type continental margin in the Tethys. The study of several stratigraphic sections from allochthonous slices and blocks of the North Anatolian Ophiolitic Melange provided insight into the Middle Jurassic-Early Cretaceous paleogeographic evolution of the Central Pontide Belt. The Callovian-Aptian successions span the Globuligerina gr. oxfordiana, Clypeina jurassica (equivalent of the T...
Upper Cretaceous Radiolarian ages from an arc-back-arc within the Yuksekova Complex in the southern Neotethys melange, SE Turkey
TEKİN, UĞUR KAĞAN; Ural, Melek; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; ARSLAN, MEHMET; KÜRÜM, SEVCAN (2015-02-01)
The Yuksekova complex in SE Turkey is a part of a continuous belt of ophiolites and subduction-accretion complexes that stretches from Troodos in the west to Oman in the east, representing the remnants of the Southern Branch of Neotethys. This complex mainly comprises a tectonically chaotic assemblage of basaltic dykes and pillow lavas associated with radiolarian cherts, shales and pelagic limestones. Detailed petrological work on submarine basaltic lavas from Elazig-Malatya area in SE Turkey revealed the p...
