Geological history of western Turkey

A new study has been published in the Earth and Planetary Science Letters by van Hinsbergen et al. about the geological history of the western part of Turkey. They used African-Europe convergence amounts calculated from the Atlantic plate circuits and seismic tomography images from the west Anatolian mantle structure, and revealed the geological history since Cretaceous times in a context of convergence, subduction, collision and slab break-off.
