Research of Nuretdin Kaymakci

Paleostress inversion of multiphase
deformed areas in Anatolia

Schematic overview of Turkish-Anatolian tectonics
Nuri Kaymakci contributes his expertise to the ISES Europe-Africa convergence integrated program. Projects are related to the geodynamic and paleogeographic evolution of the Middle Miocene East Tethys gateway, on the collision history of the Arabian and Eurasian plate in SE Anatolia, and on the Mesozoic geodynamics of the circum - Black Sea area, using paleomagnetic constraints on timing and kinematic evolution.

Nuri Kaymakci has finished a PhD study – at Utrecht University - on the tectonostratigraphic evolution of the Çankiri Basin (Central Anatolia, Turkey). His present position is at the Middle East Technical University (METU) of Ankara. His research entails using available (un)published data, satellite and airborne imagery (gravity and magnetics), paleostress inversion techniques, as well as paleomagnetism and integrated stratigraphy. As an ISES Visiting Research Fellow, Nuri Kaymakci is involved in a number of projects in the  Europe-Africa convergence programme. These are:

  • Geodynamic and paleogeographic evolution of the East Tethys gateway during the middle Miocene and its influence on the environmental conditions in the circum-Mediterranean region. Researcher: Silja Huesing

  • The collision history of the Arabian and Eurasian plate in SE Anatolia: paleomagnetic constraints on timing and kinematic evolution. Researcher: vacancy

  • Opening and closure of the Tethys oceans: Mesozoic Cimmerian deformation around the present-day Black Sea. Researcher: Maud Meijers
