Tectono-metamorphic evolution of the northern Menderes Massif : Evidence from the horst between Gördes and Demirci Basins (west Anatolia, Turkey)
Buğdaycıoğlu, Çağrı; Bozkurt, Erdin; Department of Geological Engineering (2004)
The Menderes Massif forms a large metamorphic culmination in western Turkey ا an extensional province where continental lithosphere has been stretching following Palaeogene crustal thickening. Northern sector of the Massif on the horst between Gördes and Demirci Basins was chosen for structural analysis aimed to study the tectono-metamorphic evolution of the northern Menderes Massif. Within the study area, four groups of rocks are recognized: (1) the metamorphic rocks ا orthogneisses and metasediments; (2) ...
Tectono-stratigraphic evolution of the continental miocene basins in Southwest Anatolia
Koç, Ayten; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Van Hinsbergen, Douwe J. J.; Department of Geological Engineering (2013)
The Tauride range in southern Turkey is flanked and overlain by Neogene sedimentary basins. To the south and on top of the high range, these basins are mainly marine, whereas poorly studied intra-montane basins dominated by continental deposits are exposed to the north. In this study, the stratigraphy and structure of these continental basins which includes Altınapa, Yalvaç and Ilgın Basins are studied. Their stratigraphy of these basins displays poorly expressed fining upwards sequences of fluvio-lacustrin...
Tectonic setting of some Paleozoic metamorphics in northern Anatolia
Rojay, Fuat Bora ( Hacettepe Üniversitesi, 1997-01-01)
In northern Anatolia along the Izmir-Ankara-Erzurum Suture, the low-grade metamorphics display strong protolithologic similarities. However, the classification of these metamorphics with respect to ' their prototithological stratigraphy, internal organization, age and boundary relations are still not clear due to limited number of metamorphic studies. Amasya region in NW Central Anatolia is selected and studied to shed some light onto the metamor-phic problem in northern Anatolia. TectonostratigraphicaUy, t...

Tectonic evolution and paleogeography of the Kırşehir Block and the Central Anatolian Ophiolites, Turkey
van Hinsbergen, Douwe J. J.; Maffione, Marco; Plunder, Alexis; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Ganerød, Morgan; Hendriks, Bart W. H.; Corfu, Fernando; Gürer, Derya; de Gelder, Giovanni I. N. O.; Peters, Kalijn; McPhee, Peter J.; Brouwer, Fraukje M.; Advokaat, Eldert L.; Vissers, Reinoud L. M. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2016-4)
In Central and Western Anatolia two continent-derived massifs simultaneously underthrusted an oceanic lithosphere in the Cretaceous and ended up with very contrasting metamorphic grades: high pressure, low temperature in the Tavsanli zone and the low pressure, high temperature in the Kirsehir Block. To assess why, we reconstruct the Cretaceous paleogeography and plate configuration of Central Anatolia using structural, metamorphic, and geochronological constraints and Africa-Europe plate reconstructions. We...
