The Gulf of Aqaba is located at the southern part of the Dead Sea Fault (DSF), the length of which is reaches approximately to 1200 km, extending up to Amuq valley in southern Turkey. The gulf is characterized by three pul...
Evaluation of reservoir quality of the Derdere formation within the sequence stratigraphic framework in Diyarbakır region, SE Turkey
Yetim, Suzan Müge; Altıner, Demir; Department of Geological Engineering (2021-2-04)
An integrated sequence stratigraphic study based on well samples and well log data reveals the signals of eustatic sea level change during the Cenomanian-Turonian time interval in Diyarbakır, southeastern Turkey. The depos...
Automated detection of discontinuity properties using terrestrial laser scanning data
Ünlüsoy, Deniz; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi; Department of Geological Engineering (2020-12-24)
Traditional ground surveying methods for the determination of rock mass discontinuity characteristics are costly and time consuming when large survey areas are involved. In addition, some rock mass surfaces cannot be obs...
Cenomanian–turonian platform evolution and records of OAE 2 on the drowned northern arabian carbonate platform (se Turkey): Integration of biostratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, sedimentology, and stable isotopes
Mülayim, Oğuz; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Department of Geological Engineering (2020-10-23)
The evolution of the Cenomanian–Turonian (C–T) carbonate platform (northern Arabian Platform) in southeastern Turkey has been embraced with special emphasis on the sedimentology, biostratigraphy, lithostratigraphy, seque...
Assessment of consolidation settlements in Karacabey soft clays: Estimated and monitored behaviour
Çelik, Gözde; Topal, Tamer; Erol, Ahmet Orhan; Department of Geological Engineering (2020-9)
Settlement of highway embankments constructed over clayey soft soils is a major problem encountered in maintaining highway facilities. Accurate estimation of consolidation settlement amounts and times has been a challenge ...
Hydrogeological characterization of a mine site in Eastern Anatolia
Tayyar, Doğukan; Yazıcıgil, Hasan; Department of Geological Engineering (2020-9)
Characterization of hydrogeological properties of water bearing rocks in a mine site is important for controlling groundwater flow to provide safe operating conditions. This study aims to characterize the groundwater flow ...
Geochemical traces of historical Eastern Mediterranean tsunamis in the sediments of Öüdeniz lagoon, sw Turkey.
Yeniçeri, Murat Toygar; Avşar, Ulaş; Department of Geological Engineering (2020)
Tsunami is flooding of huge wave of sea water over the land that has the potential to cause destruction and devastation on the coastal regions. They are the result of large subaqueous mass movements possibly related to ear...
