    The conference will review exploration activity, as well as challenges to a better understanding of the geology in the eastern Mediterranean, including seismic (and other data) acquisition and imaging. Key geological issues for understanding subsurface risk in the area will be addressed, including but not limited to: Geodynamic Evolution. Special Issue: The Isparta Angle, SW Turkey — Its Role in the Evolution of Tethys in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. Pages: July ‐ December Preface: the Isparta Angle, SW Turkey—its role in the evolution of Tethys in the Eastern Mediterranean region. 35th International Geological Conference - South Africa

    The Middle East and eastern Mediterranean regions contain three major strike‐slip fault zones: the Dead Sea fault zone (DSFZ) and the North and East Anatolian fault zones (NAFZ and EAFZ). These accommodate northward motion of the African and Arabian plates relative to Eurasia and westward motion of the small Turkish plate. In The geological evolution of the eastern Mediterranean. Edited by J.E. Dixon and A.H.F. Robertson. Geological Society of London Special Publicat pp. –

      The Eastern Mediterranean region is a classic area for the study of tectonic processes and settings related to the development of the Tethyan orogenic belt. The present set of research and synthesis papers by Earth scientists from countries in this region and others provides an up-to-date, interdisciplinary overview of the tectonic development.

This article is a brief summary of the most current models for the geologic and tectonic evolution of the Anatolian plateau in eastern Turkey and the surrounding a summary is warranted in light of the seismological and other geophysical information that became available during the past few years concerning the upper mantle and lithospheric images (e.g., Al-Lazki et al., ; Gok.

The Mediterranean Sea, nestled between Africa, southern Europe, and the Middle East, may be envisioned as a complex picture-puzzle comprising numerous intricate pieces, many of which are already in place.

A general image, in terms of science, has emerged, although at this time large gaps are noted. In: Dixon and Robertson (Editors), The Geological Evolution of the Eastern Mediterranean.

At a conference held in Banyuls-sur-Mer, France, in AugustProfes­ sor Raimondo Selli was urged by some panel members to initiate an Ad­ vanced Research Institute (ARI) that would focus primarily on the geologi­ cally recent evolution of the Mediterranean Sea and serve as a logical base for future NATO conferences on the Mediterranean.

The eastern Mediterranean, in the Neo-Tethyan collision zone, consists mainly of the Mesozoic terrane belt and the adjoining oceanic crust complex of the northern part of the Sinai plate. The recent discovery of large hydrocarbon deposits has attracted considerable attention to this region. The Eastern Mediterranean region is a classic area for the study of tectonic processes and settings related to the development of the Tethyan orogenic belt.

Hall Pages The eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea is of great geological interest. One of the main interesting topics is the genesis and the development of hydrocarbon fields in the area. The analysis of the palaeogeographic evolution of two major basins in eastern Mediterranean Sea, such as Levantine basin and Herodotus basin, shows the same evolution.

Special Publication Since its publication inthe Geological Evolution of the Eastern Mediterranean has proved to be an invaluable aid to research in this important region.

Many of the papers are classics that report basic data and tectonic interpretations that still remain valid today. Those who have tried to obtain this book in the last few years have been disappointed, hence the. The eastern Mediterranean is a tectonically complex region evolving in the long term located in the midst of the progressive Afro-Eurasian collision.

Despite years of investigation, its geological-geophysical structure is not completely known. At the same time, the recent discovery of large gas deposits has attracted the attention of many researchers to this region.

About this book. Field Guide to the Wild Flowers of the Eastern Mediterranean is the most comprehensive and up-to-date plant identification guide to the region written to date, and is a companion volume to the book covering the Western Mediterranean by the same author. This large area has a complex and varied geology and topography but is united by its typically Mediterranean climate of.

The Pyrenees are a kilometre-long, roughly east–west striking, intracontinental mountain chain that divide France, Spain, and Andorra. The belt has an extended, polycyclic geological evolution dating back to the chain's present configuration is due to the collision between the microcontinent Iberia and the southwestern promontory of the European Plate (i.e.

In: B. Biju-Duval and L. Montadert (Editors), Structural History of the Mediterranean Basins. .The Eastern Mediterranean represents the last stage in the evolution of an ocean basin.

Given the current motion between Africa and Eurasia, the Eastern Mediterranean will cease to exist in about Ma from now. As a result, the larger and older basins are shrinking, whereas the younger and smaller basins are growing.2.

Plate tectonic evolution of the Mediterranean As a result of a great number of internal forces the Mediterranean has a complicated geological history. Thus, it is difficult to reconstruct reliable plate movements for geologic times earlier than the Mid-Jurassic time, million years ago (Higgins & Higgins, ).

Nevertheless, there is.
