Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe and interpret neotectonic structures in the famous travertines at Pamukkale. Three morphological varieties of travertine mass are of structural significance: 1) range-front travertines cementing alluvial -fan and -cone sediments, 2) perched channels of wall-like form that are self-built as a result of man channelling water flow, and 3) fissure-ridge travertines that are cut by fissures roughly following ridge crests
