Özet

Northwest Anatolia has a special importance in terms of the geological evolution of Turkey because there are several suture zones reflecting the occurrence of different oceans between late Palaeozoic-early Tertiary time. These oceans were the Palaeo-Tethys ocean and the Karakaya basin which both dosed in Jurassic time, and the Neo-Tethys ocean which closed in late Cretaceous-early Tertiary. Following these events, the neo-tectonic period started. A north-south extension in the early Miocene occurred in western Turkey, and later, in the late Miocene, the North Anatolian Fault Formed a diffused strike-slip boundary in northwest Anatolia.
