Facets of this deformation comprise the crustal thickening and uplift that produced the Anatolian plateau, the establishment of transform faults, and tectonic escape as Arabia has continued to impinge into the collage of Anatolian terranes accreted by closure of the Neo-Tethys. We have compiled a database of neotectonic paleomagnetic results from Anatolia to analyze this deformation. Large rotations (up to 5°/10,000...
