Abstract

In the Boyali area (northern Anatolia), a thick succession of the Early Maastrichtian - Middle Paleocene Tarakli Flysch crops out. The Tarakh Flysch represents a foredeep sediment deposited during the final stage of collision between the Sakarya and Istanbul-Zonguldak continental margins, that developed as a consequence of the closure of the Intrapontide oceanic basin.
