Abstract

The comparison of clay mineral populations and geochemical properties of land samples with marine surface sediments of the Bay of Iskenderun reveal the source materials of the surface sediments and confirms conclusion on provenance obtained from Landsat imagery. The occurrence of an ancient terrace and a former mouth of the River Ceyhan is also deduced from the clay mineral distribution particularly the presence of palygorskite which is an indicator of Pleistocene (pluvial / interpluvial) climatic conditions
