Abstract The central Anatolian crust is composed of high-grade metamorphic rocks covered by Tertiary shallow marine to continental sedimentary rocks, with a Middle Miocene-Recent volcanic activity in Cappadocia. After the Late Cretaceous closure of the Tethyan Ocean and following plate collision, core complexes formed in Nigde and Kirsehir regions of central Anatolia. Recent geophysical studies indicate the presence of low seismic velocity zones beneath central Anatolia, interpreted as… CONTINUE READING
