Abstract

Rock, mineral, fossil associations, structure, geological section, landforms or a part of land which they represent current or former geological process, event or a specialty is defined geosite. Some geologic units containing fossil associations and outcropping along Hasanaga Stream located in the northwest of Akcadag which is a settlement of Malatya city in Eastern Anatolia Region, is seen as a good example to this definition.
