THE KONYA FAULT ZONE

Rahmi AKSOY, Yaşar EREN

Abstract


The Konya fault zone is a northeast-southwest trending, east-dipping normal slip fault in
the western part of the Konya city, extending for about 65 km from the east of Hatunsaray
northeastward to the east of Doğudağ. The fault zone includes subparallel branching faults that lie
within a linear belt, as much as 5 km in width. Study of exposures in a road-cut across the fault zone
demonstrates recurrent Quaternary faulting. Three events have been identified but not yet dated.
Evidence of prehistoric events includes development of cracks and veins in the sedimentary units, faults
that are covered by sediments that accumulated after the faults slipped and sedimentary units and their
faulted relationship. The area where the fault is exposed is characterized by a unique set of stratigrafic
and geomorphic relationships that may document the late Pleistocene and Holocene movement of the
Konya fault zone.
