Abstract

Purpose. Isparta Angle occurs along the Mesozoic carbonate axis. Carbonated rocks forming the Taurus belt are continuous with allochthonous and autochthonous features. The rocks in the region are abnormally contacted with each other and can be found as allochthons on each other. The contacts between the tectono-stratigraphic units are commonly tectonic with the carbonate platforms forming the autochthonous basement to the west and east. For this reason, the initial relations between the rock masses and their initial geographical locations are not known.
