GS SP 173 - Tectonics and Magmatism in Turkey and the Surrounding Area

Edited by E. Bozkurt, J.A. Winchester, and J.D.A. Piper

 

The volume is divided into five sections: Tethyan evolution, Neotethyan ophiolites, post-Tethyan basin evolution, neotectonics and igneous activity. The first two sections deal with Tethyan oceans, whose growth and subsequent closure dominated the geodynamic framework in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic. The subsequent sections deal with more recent geological developments from the Balkan Peninsula in the west to the Transcaucasus in the east that followed consumption of the Tethyan oceans.

There is a broad mix of papers throughout the volume: wide-ranging review papers on ocean development and extensional tectonics are followed by detailed descriptions of petrology and geochemistry and geographically focused studies on basin evolution, specific aspects of extensional and strike-slip tectonics and discussions of the relationship of magmatic activity to the tectonic development of the area. Tectonics and Magmatism in Turkey and the Surrounding Area presents up-to-date results and ideas from a large number of international contributors on a wide range of current research activity in this region. It is essential reading for all geoscientists with an interest in both academic and applied aspects of eastern Mediterranean geology.
