Abstract

The Cankiri-Corum Basin is one of the larger, onshore sedimentary basins in central Turkey. In this paper, the integration of geophysical data and geological findings in the Cankiri-Corum Basin was performed and they both present a complex basin structure. In the frame of geophysical study, two-dimensional (20) models were constructed using gravity and magnetic anomalies. Seismic sections were interpreted and correlated with the 2D models using the borehole data as control. Basement depth, basin geometry and sources for magnetic anomalies along the 20 model profiles were determined in integration of seismic, gravity, aeromagnetic and borehole data.
