Özet

The Paleozoic-Lower Mesozoic formations of the Antalya Unit in southern Turkey comprise diagenetic sediments, shale, mudstone, shale, siltstone, sandstone and scarce spiculite, together with very low-grade metamorphic lithologies, slate, metamudstone, metasiltstone, metasandstone and metalimestone. These diagenetic and metamorphic lithologies are dominant in the northern (Demirtas-Alanya) and southern (Gazipasa) parts of the unit, respectively. The main minerals of the meta-sedimentary rocks are phyllosilicates (2M(1) + 1M(d) + 1M illite, la chlorite, C-V. C-S. I-S), quartz, plagioclase, calcite and dolomite.
