Stratigraphical, sedimentological, geochemical and cyclostratigraphical analyses of upper cretaceous (upper santonian- campanian) pelagic successions of Haymana and Mudurnu-Göynük basins of the Sakarya continent, Turkey
Afridi, Bakht Zamir; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Department of Geological Engineering (2014)
The Upper Cretaceous (Upper Santonian-Campanian) successions were measured from two different basins of Turkey, Haymana basin and Mudurnu-Göynük basin. The measured Alagöz and Göynük sections are dominantly composed of red marly beds and fine grained siliciclastic green-gray beds with occasional interruption of fine grained turbiditic bedding. A variety of lithofacies are identified in the studied sections, including radiolarian packstone, silty marls, marls, mudstone, claystone, siltstone and fine grained ...
The hydrologie and isotopic data were analyzed for samples collected in 1989 and 1990 for the Guvenç basin of Ankara. Hydrograph components were evaluated for nine storm events. The average contribution of baseflow, interflow, and surface flow to the streamflow was 61,24, and 15%, respectively
Palaeoenvironmental and chronological constraints on the Tuglu Formation (Cankiri Basin, Central Anatolia, Turkey)
Mazzini, Ilaria; Hudackova, Natalia; Joniak, Peter; Kovacova, Marianna; Mikes, Tamas; Mulch, Andreas; Rojay, Fuat Bora; Lucifora, Stella; Esu, Daniela; Soulie-Maersche, Ingeborg (2013-01-01)
The Cankiri Basin, located in the northern part of the Central Anatolian Plateau, is a large Tertiary basin where thick Miocene to Quaternary continental sediments overlay the Cretaceous-Tertiary units. This investigation focuses on the Tuglu Formation, an Upper Miocene succession mainly composed of dark grey silty and organic rich clays. The type section of Tuglu has been sampled for an array of multidisciplinary analyses. The palaeontological proxies included ostracod, foraminifer, nannoplankton, pollen, ...
Palaeomagnetic evidence for the Gondwanian origin of the Taurides and rotation of the Isparta Angle, southern Turkey
Piper, JDA; Gursoy, H; Tatar, O; Isseven, T; Kocyigit, A (2002-10-01)
The Taurides, the southernmost of the three major tectonic domains that constitute present-day Turkey, were emplaced following consumption of the Tethyan Ocean in Late Mesozoic to mid-Tertiary times. They are generally assigned an origin at the northern perimeter of Gondwana. To refine palaeogeographic control we have investigated the palaeomagnetism of a range of Jurassic rocks. Forty-nine samples of Upper Jurassic limestones preserve a dual polarity remanence (D/I = 303/ - 9(degrees), alpha(95) = 6degrees...
Multiscale pore structure characterization of middle east carbonates
Gundogar, A. S.; Ross, C. M.; Akın, Serhat; Kovscek, A. R. (Elsevier BV, 2016-10-01)
This paper focuses on the measurement of pore-scale geometrical and topological properties of heterogeneous Middle East carbonates using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), image analysis, and mercury porosimetry. Quantitative pore network descriptors including porosity, pore body and throat sizes, coordination number (number of throats per pore), shape factor (pore area to perimeter ratio), aspect ratio (pore body to throat size ratio), and their distributions are determined from SEM-based images of thin s...
