Petrography And Geochemistry Of The Jajarm Bauxite Ore Deposit, Northeast Iran: Implications For Source Rock Material And Ore Genesis, Dariush Esmaeily, Hosein Rahimpour-Bonab, Amir Esna-Ashari, Ali Kananian

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

The Jajarm bauxite deposit, northeast Iran, is the largest such deposit in Iran. The deposit is sandwiched between the Triassic Elika formation and the Jurassic Shemshak formation, housed within karstic features developed within the former unit. The deposit generally shows an internal layering defined by the following four distinct horizons (from bottom to top): (a) a lower argillaceous horizon, approximately 50-80 cm thick, is mainly composed of clay minerals that directly overlies the carbonate footwall (Elika formation); (b) a bauxitic clay layer approximately 2-3 m thick that consists mainly of hematite, kaolinite, anatase, and diaspore; (c) a red bauxite layer …


Tsunami Hazard Assessment On The Southern Coast Of Spain, MAURICIO GONZÁLEZ, RAUL MEDINA, MAITANE OLABARRIETA, LUIS OTERO 2010 TÜBİTAK

Tsunami Hazard Assessment On The Southern Coast Of Spain, Mauricio González, Raul Medina, Maitane Olabarrieta, Luis Otero

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

In this study an indirect statistical method has been proposed to estimate the tsunami hazard assessment along the Alborán Sea Coast (Southeastern Spanish Coast). This method can be summarized as: (1) analysis of the global neotectonic setting, including geodynamic processes as well as seismicity of the region; (2) tsunami source model; (3) generation of a numerical data base of tsunami events using a numerical model; (4) probabilistic model based on Monte-Carlo simulations in order to generate a synthetic tsunami catalogue; and (5) a multidimensional interpolation method applied to combine the numerical data base with the synthetic catalogue to produce inundation …


The Impact Of Tsunamis On The Island Of Majorca Induced By North Argelian Seismic Sources, JOSÉ A. ÁLVAREZ-GÓMEZ, MAITANE OLABARRIETA, MAURICIO GONZÁLEZ, LUÍS OTERO, EMILIO CARREÑO, JOSÉ M. MARTÍNEZ-SOLARES 2010 TÜBİTAK

The Impact Of Tsunamis On The Island Of Majorca Induced By North Argelian Seismic Sources, José A. Álvarez-Gómez, Maitane Olabarrieta, Mauricio González, Luís Otero, Emilio Carreño, José M. Martínez-Solares

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

The north of Algeria is the main earthquake-related tsunami generation zone that threatens the Balearic Islands. In this work we review the major seismic series of the area -the 1980 El Asnam and the 2003 Boumerdes-Zemmouri earthquakes– in order to obtain a probable worst characteristic earthquake rupture. We estimate rupture dimensions of 55 km x 16 km, reaching the fault plane a depth of 13 km. The dip and rake have been taken as constants, with values of 50° and 90° respectively, while the strike is adjusted to the local tectonic structure. With these characteristics a magnitude M_w= 7.3 earthquake …


Geochronological Evidence Of Pan-African Eclogites From The Central Menderes Massif, Turkey, OBERHAENSLI ROLAND, OSMAN CANDAN, Franziska Wilke 2010 TÜBİTAK

Geochronological Evidence Of Pan-African Eclogites From The Central Menderes Massif, Turkey, Oberhaensli Roland, Osman Candan, Franziska Wilke

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

The Menderes Massif in western Anatolia documents a complex geodynamic history from Precambrian to recent. Eclogitic relics found in metagabbros in the Precambrian basement were dated by the U/Pb method. The zircon age data from granulitic (coronitic) and eclogitic metagabbros is consistent with geological constraints as well as relative and radiometric ages of the host granulitic gneisses and augen gneisses. A Pan-African intrusion age (540 Ma) of the metagabbros and a shortly later eclogite facies event (530 Ma) are inferred. This scenario fits with the geodynamic evolution deduced form the acidic country rocks of the eclogitic metagabbros. Direct links between …


Bala (Ankara) Earthquakes: Implications For Shallow Crustal Deformation In Central Anatolian Section Of The Anatolian Platelet (Turkey), ONUR TAN, MUSTAFA CENGİZ TAPIRDAMAZ, SEMİH ERGİNTAV, SEDAT İNAN, YILDIZ İRAVUL, RUHİ SAATÇILAR, BEKİR TÜZEL, ADİL TARANCIOĞLU, SALİH KARAKISA, RECAİ FEYİZ KARTAL, SAMİ ZÜNBÜL, KENAN YANIK, MEHMET KAPLAN, FUAT ŞAROĞLU, ALİ KOÇYİĞİT 2010 TÜBİTAK

Bala (Ankara) Earthquakes: Implications For Shallow Crustal Deformation In Central Anatolian Section Of The Anatolian Platelet (Turkey), Onur Tan, Mustafa Cengi̇z Tapirdamaz, Semi̇h Ergi̇ntav, Sedat İnan, Yildiz İravul, Ruhi̇ Saatçilar, Beki̇r Tüzel, Adi̇l Tarancioğlu, Sali̇h Karakisa, Recai̇ Feyi̇z Kartal, Sami̇ Zünbül, Kenan Yanik, Mehmet Kaplan, Fuat Şaroğlu, Ali̇ Koçyi̇ği̇t

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

Central Anatolia is quiet in terms of seismic activity, and rarely earthquakes up to magnitude 5.6 occur in the inner part of the Anatolian block or Anatolian platelet. Southeast of Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, two earthquake sequences with maximum magnitude of 5.6 occurred in 2005 and 2007. We discuss these shallow crustal deformation in the Anatolian platelet, in the light of seismological data from these earthquakes (M_L= 5.6) and their aftershocks. Following the earthquake of December 20, 2007 near Bala town, Ankara, we installed seven temporary stations in the first 24 hours to observe the aftershock activity and …


Danielita Gailloti N.Gen., N. Sp., Within The Evolutionary Framework Of Middle-Late Permian Dagmaritins, DEMİR ALTINER, SEVİNÇ ÖZKAN ALTINER 2010 TÜBİTAK

Danielita Gailloti N.Gen., N. Sp., Within The Evolutionary Framework Of Middle-Late Permian Dagmaritins, Demi̇r Altiner, Sevi̇nç Özkan Altiner

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

The name Danielita is proposed for a new dagmaritin genus characterized by a biserial arrangement of chambers with spine-like extensions at chamber corners and a perforated wall. Danielita differs from Dagmarita, from which it was derived, by a perforated wall and constitutes one of the peculiar evolutionary trends of the dagmaritin stock. Early dagmaritins evolved from Globivalvulina cyprica by the appearance of Sengoerina in the Capitanian and the frequently encountered association G. cyprica-Sengoerina-Dagmarita-Danielita in Turkey suggests that the evolutionary derivations of dagmaritin genera occurred very rapidly in the Capitanian. The subfamily Paradagmaritinae is synonymized under the subfamily Dagmaritinae. Among recently …


Application Of The Normalized Full Gradient (Nfg) Method To Resistivity Data, ALİ AYDIN 2010 TÜBİTAK

Application Of The Normalized Full Gradient (Nfg) Method To Resistivity Data, Ali̇ Aydin

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

This paper proposes the application of the normalized full gradient (NFG) method to resistivity studies and illustrates that the method can greatly reduce the time and work load needed in detecting buried bodies using resistivity measurement. The NFG method calculates resistivity values at desired electrode offsets by extrapolation of a function of resistivity measurements (i.e. the gradient) to other depth levels using resistivity measurements done at one electrode offset only. The performance and reliability of the NFG method is tested on laboratory and field resistivity data from two sites by comparing the trend of the resistivity values at six or …


Ontogeny And Funtional Morphology Of A Lower Cretaceous Carpinid Rudist (Bivalvia, Hippuritoida), ROBERT W. SCOTT, MEGHAN WEAVER 2010 TÜBİTAK

Ontogeny And Funtional Morphology Of A Lower Cretaceous Carpinid Rudist (Bivalvia, Hippuritoida), Robert W. Scott, Meghan Weaver

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

Caprinuloidea rudists are locally abundant and widespread in Lower Cretaceous (Albian Stage) Edwards Formation in Texas. Landward of the shelf margin on the shallow marine Comanche Shelf rudists built circular and elongate bioherms with coarse-grained flank deposits. Two caprinid morphotypes suggest that some lived as elevators above the substrate and others were recumbent upon mobile grain flats. Elevators have elongated attached valves and weakly coiled free valves and recumbents have arcuate attached valves and strongly coiled free valves. Detailed morphologic studies are not possible on the many molds and casts, but a few specimens are silicified. Their internal structures can …


Mathesia Mainelli (Hippuritoidea, Monopleuridae) From The Late Aptian−Albian Of The Mediterranean Region: A Revision, JEAN-PIERRE MASSE, MÜKERREM FENERCİ-MASSE 2010 TÜBİTAK

Mathesia Mainelli (Hippuritoidea, Monopleuridae) From The Late Aptian−Albian Of The Mediterranean Region: A Revision, Jean-Pierre Masse, Mükerrem Fenerci̇-Masse

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

Agria darderi Astre and Mathesia terticolloquiirudistarum Mainelli represent a single taxonomic entity: Mathesia darderi (Astre). Mathesia is characterized by an erect posterior myophoral plate and an anterior myophoral crest in the LV, the RV myophores being on the shell wall. A peculiar shell structure is observed in the RV: the junction between the outer calcitic shell layer and the inner formerly aragonitic shell layer is scalloped or festooned and usually includes longitudinal tubes. The overall morphological traits and myocardinal organisation of Mathesia are similar to those of Debrunia, although the latter lacks the scalloped or tubular inner shell features of …


Morphology, Taxonomy And Lifestyle Of The Maastrichtian Rudist Bivalve Thyrastylon, SIMON FRANCIS MITCHELL 2010 TÜBİTAK

Morphology, Taxonomy And Lifestyle Of The Maastrichtian Rudist Bivalve Thyrastylon, Simon Francis Mitchell

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

The rudist bivalve Thyrastylon is redescribed based on extensive material collected from Jamaica. The new material shows that the left valve contains slits, and that this is the diagnostic feature of the genus. The genus is redefined as follows: a radiolitid rudist with no ligamental infold, stretched cellular microstructure and compact layers in the outer layer of the right valve; the radial bands are partially infolded into the shell layer of the right valve; the left valve has oscules developed above the radial bands and has concentric, slit-like pores that penetrate the shell and open out onto the inner part …


Campanian-Maastrichtian Pseudosabinia From Turkey: Descriptions And Taxonomic Problems, SACİT ÖZER 2010 TÜBİTAK

Campanian-Maastrichtian Pseudosabinia From Turkey: Descriptions And Taxonomic Problems, Saci̇t Özer

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

Specimens of taxa assigned to Pseudosabinia Morris & Skelton, collected from the Campanian-Maastrichtian sequences of different regions of Turkey such as the Kocaeli Peninsula, Amasya, Bayburt (Pontides), Sivas, Malatya, Elazığ (eastern Anatolian platform) and Kahta-Adıyaman and Yaylaçiftliği-Antakya (northernmost part of the Arabian platform), are determined and the taxonomic statuses of the species are discussed. Pseudosabinia klinghardti (Böhm) uniquely presents all the characteristic features of the genus. Other species and subspecies assigned to the genus 'Pseudosabinia' rtanjica (Pejovic), 'Pseudosabinia' serbica (Kühn & Pejovic), 'Pseudosabinia' rtanjica triangularis (Karacabey) and 'Pseudosabinia' rtanjica tunisiensis (Philip) lack the cellular prismatic structure of the outer shell …


Maastrichtian Rudist Fauna From Tarbur Formation (Zagros Region, Sw Iran): Preliminary Observations, AHMAD REZA KHAZAEI, PETER W. SKELTON, MEHDI YAZDİ 2010 TÜBİTAK

Maastrichtian Rudist Fauna From Tarbur Formation (Zagros Region, Sw Iran): Preliminary Observations, Ahmad Reza Khazaei, Peter W. Skelton, Mehdi Yazdi̇

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

The uppermost Cretaceous Tarbur Formation of the Zagros region (SW Iran) is mainly siliciclastic in composition, though it also incorporates some carbonate units including several rudist lithosomes. Two sections through this formation, in the Semirom and Gerdbisheh areas, have been chosen for study of the lithosomes and their rudist fauna. These lithosomes vary in faunal content, geometry and internal organization (density and diversity). Preliminary investigation of the specimens collected from the studied sections reveals a diverse rudist fauna. Eleven genera and 23 species have been determined, belonging to the rudist families Hippuritidae, Radiolitidae and Dictyoptychidae. These rudist assemblages indicate a …


Blending Rudists With Technology; Non-Destructive Examination Of The Internal And External Structures Of Rudists Using High Quality Scanning And Digital Imagery, ANN MOLINEUX, ROBERT W. SCOTT, JESSIE MAISANO, RICHARD KETCHAM, LOUIS ZACHOS 2010 TÜBİTAK

Blending Rudists With Technology; Non-Destructive Examination Of The Internal And External Structures Of Rudists Using High Quality Scanning And Digital Imagery, Ann Molineux, Robert W. Scott, Jessie Maisano, Richard Ketcham, Louis Zachos

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

Certain formations within the Cretaceous of Texas include zones of silicified rudists. Such diagenetic alteration, combined with the timing of alteration, has preserved many structural features of the rudist suitable for computed tomography (CT scanning). The excellent density differences between those skeletal structures (silica) and the internal sediment (calcitic mud) or later crystallization (calcite), fulfill a fundamental requirement for such analysis. The Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas provides access to a high resolution computed tomography scanning system. This equipment, not identical to medical scanners, provides higher resolution and sophisticated software to analyze the imagery. Several rudist …


The Morphology And Function Of The Upper Valve Of Vaccinites Vesiculosus (Woodward), DIETRICH SCHUMANN 2010 TÜBİTAK

The Morphology And Function Of The Upper Valve Of Vaccinites Vesiculosus (Woodward), Dietrich Schumann

Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences

The evolutionary transformation of the upper valve (UV) to a probable particle filter system in some hippuritid genera belongs to the most drastic changes in pelycipod shell structures. The basic architecture of this product is well known since long times. Again discussed is the functional role of the canal system. The bottom of the canals is very smooth. The canal system of Vaccinites vesiculosus is completely roofed by a particular graceful sieve. A water exchange between the canals did not exist. The uppermost part of the upper valve (the sieve) most probably was an endoskeleton. The upper valve was not …


Forensic Analysis Of A Playstation 3 Console, Scott Conrad, Greg Dorn, Philip Craiger 2010 University of Central Florida

Forensic Analysis Of A Playstation 3 Console, Scott Conrad, Greg Dorn, Philip Craiger

Publications

The Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a powerful gaming console that supports Internet-related activities, local file storage and the playing of Blu-ray movies. The PS3 also allows users to partition and install a secondary operating system on the hard drive. This “desktop-like” functionality along with the encryption of the primary hard drive containing the gaming software raises significant issues related to the forensic analysis of PS3 systems. This paper discusses the PS3 architecture and behavior, and provides recommendations for conducting forensic investigations of PS3 systems.

Far-Field Optical Nanoscopy Based On Continuous Wave Laser Stimulated Emission Depletion, C. Kuang, Wei Zhao, Guiren Wang

Faculty Publications

Stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy is one of the breakthrough technologies that belong to far-field optical microscopy and can achieve nanoscale spatial resolution. We demonstrate a far-field optical nanoscopy based on continuous wave lasers with different wavelengths, i.e., violet and green lasers for excitation and STED, respectively. Fluorescent dyes Coumarin 102 and Atto 390 are used for validating the depletion efficiency. Fluorescent nanoparticles are selected for characterizing the spatial resolution of the STED system. Linear scanning of the laser beams of the STED system along one line of a microscope slide, which is coated with the nanoparticles, indicates that a …
