Paleotemperature analysis of Aliaga (Izmir, Turkey) geothermal field
Senguler, I; Sener, M; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2000-05-01)
Mineralogical and organopetrographic analysis were carried out on core samples of four geothermal wells from the Aliaga geothermal field located in western Turkey. Whole rock mineralogy and clay minerals were determined, and thermal maturity of the different levels of the formation was defined by means of vitrinite reflectance measurements. The measured maturity gradients compiled from analytical data for four wells and outcrops ranged from low to very high values.
Paleoseismological record of the Hazar Lake along the East Anatolian Fault (Turkey)

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...

Paleolimnological assessment of past aquatic vegetation dynamics and ecosytem state in Turkish shallow lakes
Levi, Eti Ester; Beklioğlu, Meryem; Department of Biology (2009)
Since submerged macrophytes are a key primary producer of shallow lakes and are sensitive to environmental changes, macrofossils of them can be used in investigations of past environmental conditions, to infer human introduced environmental impacts (e.g. eutrophication) and to determine past macrophyte communities. The present study includes twenty six shallow lakes, which were chosen along a latitudinal gradient ranging from the North (41°52́N, 27°58́E) to the South (37°06́N, 29°36́E) in Turkey. Sampling f...
Paleoseismic record obtained by coring a sag-pond along the North Anatolian Fault (Turkey)
Hubert-Ferrari, Aurelia; Avşar, Ulaş; El Ouahabı, Meriam; Lepoint, Gilles; Martinez, Philippe; Fagel, Nathalie (2012-01-01)
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 ...
