... Abstract The Elaziğ region in SE Turkey comprises, in descending order, the Palaeozoic– Mesozoic Malatya–Keban platform, an ensimatic island arc unit (i.e. Elaziğ magmatic rocks–Yüksekova complex), and ophiolitic rocks (i.e. Kömürhan) of Late Cretaceous age. All of these were intruded...

... in this ocean and generated the Elbistan–Yüksekova arc built above the Göksun ophiolite. Development of the Southeastern Anatolian Orogenic Belt began in the north, where the Binboğa–Malatya metamorphic massif, collided with the Elbistan volcanic arc to the end of Early Eocene period. Later new tectonic...

... is unreliable, given the expected diachroneity and repetitive facies of such lithologies. The clast content of conglomerates in the Ceyhan River area suggests a sharp increase in percentage of gabbroic clasts (from the ophiolitic Yuksekova complex) with decreasing a e. On this basis the gabbro-rich...

The second belt is named in Iran the “Simply Folded Zone” (e.g. Blanc et al., 2003 ; Homke et al., 2004 ). It is characterised by large regions of exposed Mesozoic rocks...
