Miocene tectonic history of the Central Tauride intramontane basins, and the paleogeographic evolution of the Central Anatolian Plateau
Koç, Ayten; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Van Hinsbergen, Douwe J. J.; Kuiper, Klaudia F. (2017-11-01)
Marine Lower-Upper Miocene deposits uplifted to > 2 km elevation in the Tauride mountains of southern Turkey are taken as evidence for the rise of a nascent plateau. The dynamic causes of this uplift are debated, but generally thought to be a regional dynamic topographic effect of slab motions or slab break-off. Immediately adjacent to the high Tauride mountains lie the Central Tauride Intramontane Basins, which consist of Miocene and younger fluvio-lacustrine basins, at much lower elevations than the highl...
Miocene geochronology and stratigraphy of western Anatolia: Insights from new Ar/Ar dataset
UZEL, BORA; Kuiper, Klaudia; SÖZBİLİR, HASAN; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Langereis, Cornelis G.; Boehm, Katharina (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
Understanding the dynamic evolution of orogenic belts and intra-continental basins depend on field-based (tectono-) stratigraphic observations paired with geochronologic data such as Ar-40/Ar-39 analyses. Independent dating of tectono-stratigraphic units is a crucial tool to place them in a broader framework. In this study, we focus on the geodynamic development of western Anatolia, with an emphasis on the timing and progression of volcanism along the Izmir-Balikesir Transfer Zone (IBM. We present 36 new Ar...
Triassic Foraminifera from the Great Bank of Guizhou, Nanpanjiang Basin, south China: taxonomic account, biostratigraphy, and implications for recovery from end-Permian mass extinction
Altıner, Demir; Lehrmann, Daniel J.; Altıner, Sevinç; Summers, Mindi M.; Yu, Meiyi (2021-12-01)
Foraminifera are important components of tropical marine benthic ecosystems and their recovery pattern from the end-Permian mass extinction can yield insights into the Mesozoic history of this group. Here we report the calcareous and agglutinated foraminifera recovered from five measured stratigraphic sections on the Great Bank of Guizhou, an uppermost Permian to Upper Triassic isolated carbonate platform in the Nanpanjiang Basin, south China. The material contains >100 Triassic species, including three tha...
Tertiary volcanism of the Galatia province, north-west central Anatolia, Turkey
Wilson, M; Tankut, A; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan (1997-12-01)
Large volumes of trachyandesitic-dacitic lava flows and pyroclastics of Miocene age are associated with small volumes of alkali basalt lava flows in the Galatia volcanic province, northwest Central Anatolia, Turkey. The volcanism postdates continental collision, occurring in a transtensional tectonic setting associated with movement along the North Anatolian Fault zone. Major and trace element (including REE) and Sr-Nd isotope data and K-Ar ages for representative samples of mafic-intermediate volcanic rock...
Triassic limestone, turbidites and serpentinite-the Cimmeride orogeny in the Central Pontides
Okay, Aral; Altıner, Demir; KILIÇ, ALİ MURAT (2015-05-01)
The basement of the Central Pontides, and by implication that of Crimea, consists of pre-Permian low-grade metaclastic rocks intruded by latest Permian-Early Carboniferous (305290 Ma) granitoids. Further up in the stratigraphic sequence are Triassic limestones, which are now preserved as olistoliths in the deformed Upper Triassic turbidites. New conodont and foraminifera data indicate an Anisian to Carnian (Middle to Late Triassic) age for these hemi-pelagic Hallstatt-type limestones. The siliciclastic turb...
