The Denizli graben-horst system and the eastern limit of western Anatolian continental extension: basin fill, structure, deformational mode, throw amount and episodic evolutionary history, SW Turkey
Kocyigit, A (Informa UK Limited, 2005-05-01)
The Denizli graben-horst system (DGHS) is located at the eastern-southeastern converging tips of three well-identified major grabens, the Gediz, the Kucuk Menderes and the Buyuk Menderes grabens, in the west Anatolian extensional province. It forms a structural link between these grabens and the other three NE-NW-trending grabens-the Civril, the Acigol and the Burdur grabens-compri sing the western limb of the Isparta Angle. Therefore, the DGHS has a critical role in the evolutionary history of continental ...
The Palu-Uluova Strike-Slip Basin in the East Anatolian Fault System, Turkey: Its Transition from the Palaeotectonic to Neotectonic Stage
Colak, Serap; AKSOY, ERCAN; Kocyigit, Ali; İNCEÖZ, MURAT (2012-07-01)
The East Anatolian fault system (EAFS) is the 80-km-wide, 700-km-long, NE-trending sinistral strike-slip fault system forming a seismically very active intracontinental transfom fault boundary. It is located between Karhova County in the northeast and Karatas-Samandag counties in the southwest, and forms the southeastern boundary of the Anatolian platelet. The Palu-Uluova basin is one of several strike-slip basins located along the EAFS. It is surrounded by several push-ups such as the Karaomerdagi, Mastard...
The Cele mafic complex: Evidence for Triassic collision between the Sakarya and Istanbul Zones, NW Turkey
Bozkurt, Erdin; Satir, Muharrem (2013-06-04)
The lowest structural levels of the Istanbul Zone are exposed in the Sunnice Massif, north of Bolu. They comprise the greenschist-facies Ediacaran calc-alkaline bimodal Yellice metavolcanics, which are intruded by the Dirgine granitoid. Amphibolite-facies mafic and subordinate ultramafic rocks of the Cele mafic complex, hitherto termed the Cele meta-ophiolite, include hornblende gneisses of island arc meta-tholeiitic and transitional to calc-alkaline metagabbroic compositions, and were previously thought to...

The Almacik mafic-ultramafic complex: exhumed Sakarya subcrustal mantle adjacent to the Istanbul Zone, NW Turkey
Bozkurt, Erdin; Satir, Muharrem; Crowley, Quentin G.; Ottley, Christian J. (2013-03-01)
The Almacik Mountains in northwestern Turkey expose an upper-amphibolite-facies complex consisting of alternating ultramafic (harzburgitic and websteritic) and mafic (metagabbroic) rock types. In the eastern part of this complex are island arc meta-tholeiites and transitional to calc-alkaline metabasites that are chemically quite similar to those of the Permo-Triassic Cele mafic complex north of Bolu, and this suggests an equivalence. However, much of the section exposes structurally deeper and chemically d...
