The sections (BS and BSE) cropping out in the Bademli region (Turkey) have been studied in order to define distinct microfacies types and associated depositional environments and the conodont biostratigraphy of the carbonate units. Conodonts are one of the main microfossil groups used to date and correlate the Paleozoic rocks. Several beds within the measured sections in Taurides are barren of conodonts, while others contain not very abundant, but quite important taxa. Based on the appearance of biostratigraphically significant species, the following zones were established across the studied successions; Gnathodus girtyi girtyi Zone (Upper Visean) and Gnathodus girtyi simplex Zone (Lower Serpukhovian). It is known that Gnathodus girtyi simplex is an important conodont taxon for the identification of Serpukhovian stage. Cosequently, the Visean – Serpukhovian boundary in Taurides (Turkey) has been delineated by the first appearance of Gnathodus girtyi simplex. Conodonts in Paleozoic deposits are generally environmentally controlled and there are different types of paleoecologic models in order to explain the distribution patterns of conodonts within depositional environments. Recent studies indicated that the distribution of conodonts was fundamentally controlled by the physical and chemical properties of the water. The studied successions in Taurides were mainly deposited in a shallow marine environment during the Carboniferous time so they comprise less diversified conodont fauna and the conodonts elements are low in abundance. In Bademli region, BSE section including the Visean - Serpukhovian boundary is predominantly composed of uniform lithologies of sandstone and sandy limestones. The defined facies types in BSE section are crinoidal bioclastic packstone, bioclastic grainstone, sandy oolitic grainstone, quartz-peloidal grainstone and quartz arenitic sandstone facies. Based on the microfacies studies, it can be stated that conodont elements essentially obtained from the crinoidal bioclastic packstone and bioclastic grainstone facies in the studied sections. These facies mainly includes high amount of crinoid fragments and other bioclasts, such as foraminifers, ostracodes, echinoids and brachiopods. Moreover, this study aims to correlate the established zonation with previously published ones from the other localities in the world and to improve biostratigraphic resolution.


Viscoelastic properties of reactive and non-reactive blends of ethylene-methyl acrylate copolymers with styrene-maleic anhydride copolymer
Bayram, G; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Xanthos, M (Wiley, 2001-02-01)
The effects of compatibilizing reactions on the viscoelastic properties and morphology of ethylene-methyl acrylate copolymers were studied. Potentially reactive blends of styrene-maleic anhydride copolymer (SMAH) and a terpolymer of ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) were compared with a nonreactive blend of SMAH and an ethylene/methyl acrylate (E-MA) copolymer with similar rheological properties. Melt mixing was carried out in a batch mixer and in a co-rotating twin screw extruder. T...
Cyclic palaeokarst surfaces in Aptian peritidal carbonate successions (Taurides, southwest Turkey): internal structure and response to mid-Aptian sea-level fall
Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Altıner, Demir (Elsevier BV, 2006-12-01)
The sedimentology and cyclic stratigraphy of palaeokarst structures in Aptian peritidal carbonate successions are interpreted using field and laboratory microfacies analyses of closely spaced samples from measured outcrop stratigraphic sections in southwest Turkey. Cycles displaying shallowing-upward metre-scale cyclicity are generally composed of lime mudstones/wackestones/packestones at the bottom and stromatolites or lime mudstones with charophytes and ostracods at the top. Subaerial exposure structures ...
Parameterization of iron and manganese cycling in the Black Sea suboxic and anoxic environment
Konovalov, S; Samodurov, A; Oguz, T; Ivanov, L (Elsevier BV, 2004-12-01)
New and published data on the distribution and speciation of manganese and iron in seawater are analyzed to identify and parameterize major biogeochemical processes of their cycling within the suboxic (similar to15.6less than or equal tosigma(t)less than or equal tosimilar to16.2) and anoxic layers (sigma(t)less than or equal tosimilar to16.2) of the Black Sea. A steady-state transport-reaction model is applied to reveal layering and parameterize kinetics of redox and dissolution/precipitation processes. Pr...
Electrochemical behaviour and electrochemical polymerization of fluoro-substituted anilines
Cihaner, A; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2002-08-01)
The electrochemical behaviour of three fluoro-substituted aniline monomers, 2-fluoroaniline (2FAN), 3-fluoroaniline (3FAN) and 4-fluoroaniline (4FAN), was investigated in aqueous acidic and organic media by means of cyclic voltammetry (CV) studies. Constant potential electrolysis (CPE) of the monomers in acetonitrile-water mixture (1: 1 by volume) using NaClO4 as supporting electrolyte yielded soluble polymers. The mechanism of electrochemical polymerization was investigated using in situ electron spin reso...
Eocene post collisional volcanism in the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex Turkey Petrology and geodynamic significance
Geneli, Fatma; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Lassıter, J; Toksoy Köksal, Fatma (null; 2010-09-04)
In the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex (CACC) the Late Cretaceous postcollisional granitic magmatism is followed by Eocene extension, resulting in formation of roughly E-W trending transtensional basins. The volcanic rocks, mainly submarine lava flows and subareal domes are concentrated along these Middle Eocene (Bartonian) basins. The volcanic rocks are basic to intermediate and are classified as basalt, basaltic andesite and rarely alkali basalt and trachy-andesite. Petrographically they are general...
