The role of syn-extensional lamprophyre magmatism in crustal dynamics – the case of the Menderes metamorphic core complex, western Turkey
MetadataShow full item record
The Menderes Massif in Turkey represents one of the largest metamorphic core complexes in the world. It is regarded as a section of lower continental crust exhumed along low-angle detachment faults in the Late Miocene during a period of extension that affected the entire Aegean province. Syn-extensional magmatic activity within the Menderes metamorphic core complex is predominantly felsic forming several plutons, whereas mantle-derived magmatism has not been known so far. Here, we present a detailed study of the petrology and geochemistry of previously unreported mafic to intermediate lamprophyres within the Menderes Massif and assess their role in the geodynamic evolution of the core complex.
