Results are presented of fieldwork and laboratory analyses on the volcanostratigraphy of the Ürgüp Formation in the Central Anatolian volcanic province, Cappadocia, Turkey. The formation of late Miocene to early Pliocene age is exposed in areas of the Ürgüp Basin and Nevşehir Plateau. It consists of volcaniclastic and epiclastic members with intercalated local basaltic to andesitic lava flows and scoria. The volcaniclastic members are composed of widespread covers of voluminous rhyolitic, less often dacitic, low-aspect ignimbrites and unconsolidated Plinian air-fall pumice layers. Intercalated abundant terrestrial and/or lacustrine sedimentary successions occur, which are dominated by lahars in the south and carbonates...
