.... To shed light on the stress regime affecting the Girne (Kyrenia) Range and the Dar Dere (Ovgos) fault lineament, a total of 1946 small-scale structures were measured, of which 1291 measurements were of faults and 655 of fractures. Of these, 421 faults have slip data associated with them, mainly from...

..., the Kyrenia Range in the north and the Troodos Massif in the south. During Pliocene time, open-marine marls and chalks of the Nicosia (Lefkoşa) Formation accumulated in a shelf setting. The Early Pleistocene period was characterized by a relative fall in sea level and a change to shallower-water bioclastic...
