The problem of the core-cover boundary of the Menderes Massif and an emplacement mechanism for regionally extensive gneissic granites, Western Anatolia (Turkey)

Öz:
Menderes Masifi'nin stratigrafisi önceki çalışmalarda Prekambrin çekirdek ve Mesozoyik örtü toplulukları olmak üzere iki ana bölüme ayrılmış, çekirdek bölümünün gnaysik granitler ve yüksek dereceli şistler, örtü serilerinin ise şişler ve platform türü mermerlerden oluştuğu belirtilmiştir. Ayrıca, çekirdek ve örtü topluluklarının birbirlerinden açısal uyumsuz dokanak boyunca ayrıldığı ileri sürülmesine rağmen bu ilişki hiçbir yerde açık olarak gözlenememiştir. Bu çalışmada Menderes Masifi'nin güney bölümünde bulunan Bafa ve Kavaklıdere alanları incelenmiştir. Bafa alanında mermer mercekleri içeren Mesozoyik yaşlı mika şistler stratigrafik olarak alt düzeyleri oluşturur ve üste doğru dereceli bir kuşak boyunca Mesozoyik karbonat istifine geçmektedir. Gnaysik granitler alttaki Mesozoyik kırıntılı düzeyleri kesmekte, dokanak ise intrüsif özelliktedir. Granitler içinde mika şist anklavları bulunurken, şistlerden oluşan çevre kayalarını kesen granit bant ve damarları dokanak boyunca yeralmaktadır. Kavaklıdere alanında Mesozoyik yaşlı metakırıntılı ve mermer istifinin altında siyah mermerler, çörtler ve kuvars mika şistlerden oluşan Permo-Karbonifer yaşlı Göktepe Formasyonu yeralır. Gnaysik granitler bu alanda da çevre kayalara sokulmuş, doğrudan Göktepe Formasyonu'nu kesmektedir. Granitler sintektonik olarak yerleşmiş olup içirişinde ileri derecede yutulmuş mika şist zon ve yamaları bulunur. Jeokimyasal özellikleri güney Menderes Masifi'ndeki gnaysik granitlerin S-tipi, peraluminus ve çarpışma sırasında yerleşmiş granitler olduğuna işaret etmektedir. Granitler, Ana Menderes Metamorfizması sırasında Geç Kretase-Erken Senozoyik döneminde çevre kayalarını oluşturan şistlerin içierisine sintektonik olarak yerleşmişlerdir. Bu nedenle gnaysik granitlerin konumu esas alınarak yapılan çekirdek ve örtü sınıflaması yanlıştır. Likya napları, bu sırada kuzeye doğru itilmiş, buna bağlı olarak Menderes platformu bölgesel ölçekli kıvrımlarla deformasyon geçirmiştir. Granitik ergiyikler kuzeye devrik kıvrımların çekirdekleri boyunca yerleşmiş ve aynı zamanda platformun alt bölümlerini ergime ve yutmalar yoluyla mobilizasyona uğratmıştır.
