Mantle to Surface dynamics across subduction-collision transtions in space and time: results from the CD-CAT project in Anatolia
Rojay, Fuat Bora; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Özacar, Atilla Arda (2017-12-15)
From west to east, the southern plate boundary of Anatolia varies from subduction to continental collision; plate dynamics are influenced by the interaction of back-arc extension in the west (Aegean) and convergence in the east (Arabia-Eurasia). Prior to 40 Ma, the entire margin was a subduction zone. The NSF project "Continental Dynamics-Central Anatolian Tectonics (CD-CAT)" has contributed to understanding how the mantle, crust, and surface evolve in subduction-to-collision transitions in time and space. ...
Crust and upper mantle dynamics of Turkey inferred from passive seismology: implications of segmented slab geometry
Berk, Biryol; Susan, Beck; George, Zandt; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin (2010-10-08)
Turkey lies within the Alpine–Himalayan orogenic belt and is shaped by continent-continent collision in the east, slab rollback and back arc extension in the west and westward extrusion of Anatolian plate in between. In this study, passive seismic data are used to analyze the crust and upper mantle structure of the region to test different tectonic models proposed for Turkey and its surrounding. In Eastern Turkey, continent-continent collision resulted in a topographic high, the East Anatolian Plateau which...

Crust–mantle interaction in western Turkey: Implications from Sr and Nd isotope geochemistry of Tertiary and Quaternary volcanics
Güleç, Nilgün Türkan (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 1991-01-01)
The isotopic composition of Sr and Nd together with the abundance data for major and trace elements are reported for Tertiary to Quaternary volcanics from a variety of localities in western Turkey. These data are used to evaluate the role of crust–mantle interaction in the petrogenesis of the western Turkish volcanics. The major and trace element chemistry reveals a general change in the nature of volcanism from dominantly calc-alkaline in Tertiary to alkaline in Quaternary times. The calc-alkaline rocks ar...
