Mesoscopic Tectonic Features of the Menderes Massif in the North of Selimiye (Milas, Muğla)

Rahmi AKSOY

Abstract


The Menderes Massif in the south of Beşparmak Mountains north of Selimiye (Milas,
Muğla) consists of the upper Devonian-upper Permian metamorphites and the upper Oligocene
gneisses. In this study, phases of deformation accompanied the regional metamorphism of the massif
were determined. The Paleozoic metamorphites experienced regional metamorphism under the upper
amphibolite-greenschist facies conditions have undergone four phases of deformation. The first
deformation phase produced schistosity and foliation planes as a result of regional metamorphism.
Following this phase, the rocks have been subjected to refolding about B2=N 26°E, 50°SW and B3=N
66°W, 60°SE directions. It is also observed that the region has been affected by uplifting, subsidence and
block faulting since Miocene.
