Özet

The Late Cenozoic Antalya Basin developed unconformably on a foundered basement comprising Mesozoic autochthonous carbonate platform(s) overthrust by the Lycian Nappes, the Antalya Nappes and the Alanya Massif metamorphics within the Isparta Angle, southern Turkey. The present configuration of the basin consists of three distinct parts, referred herein as the Aksu, Koprucay and Manavgat sub-basins, respectively, which are divided by the north-south-trending Kirkkavak Fault and the westward-verging Aksu Thrust.
