... into account. The Muş and Elazığ basins, located to the north of the BitlisZagros suture zone, were most likely connected during the Oligocene. The deepening of both basins is biostratigraphically dated by us to occur during the Rupelian (Early Oligocene). Deep marine conditions (between 350 and 750 m...

... of shortening along the BitlisZagros suture zone to the south ( Okay et al . 2010 ). Such synchronicity has been interpreted to result from stress transfer from the suture zone to the foreland during continental collision. Strain focused preferentially along the rheological boundary between the multi-deformed...

.... Our numerical models not only shed new light on the SI dynamics of Cenozoic subduction zones (e.g., the Izu-Bonin-Mariana zone in the Pacific Ocean), but also have implications for fossil convergent plate margins (e.g., the Bitlis-Zagros suture zone, west of the Strait of Hormuz). In the latter case...

... suture zone makes a sharp loop around the Eocene-Miocene Çankiri sedimentary basin (just east of the city of Ankara), which developed as a syn- to postcollisional foreland basin. The Bitlis-Zagros suture defines the collision front between the Arabian and Eurasian plates that was initiated after...

The major Palmyride deformation in Miocene-Pliocene times was concomitant with the opening of the Red Sea, with the closing of the Bitlis-Zagros suture zone in eastern Turkey and central Iran, and with the main sinistral strike-slip motion along the Dead Sea fault.
