Abstract

It is now widely accepted that the rapid extension observed in western Turkey is mainly accommodated by large active normal faults which control the geomorphology. The NE-SW trending Burdur, Acigol and Baklan basins bounded by large faults form a system of half-graben whose orientation is evident in both the topography and the tilting of Neogene sediments adjacent to them.
