Özet

The hitherto poorly known Mut basin occupies a position that is critical to our understanding of the later Cenozoic history of south central Turkey. The biostratigraphic and sedimentological study reported here reveals an extended and complex pattern of basin evolution and enables the history of this basin to be compared in detail with that of adjacent south Turkish basins.
