原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)We present the results of detailed field investigations of the fluvial succession exposed along the Euphrates valley adjoining the Atatürk Dam in the northern part of the Arabian Platform within SE Turkey. This work, which has used Differential GPS surveying to obtain accurate heights of deposits and Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission imagery for location purposes, has included documentation of many fresh sections exposed by quarrying. The work has been supplemented by unspiked KAr dating of late Middle Miocene to Late Miocene basalt flows, which are widespread in the region, providing a chronology for the early stages of development of this river system following regional emergence above sea-level in the early Middle Miocene. For example, beside the...
