Jurnal Internasional Karakteristik geokimia dari basal Anatolia: Mengomentari “Peningkatan Neogen dan magmatisme Anatolia: Wawasan dari analisis drainase dan geokimia basaltik” oleh McNab et al. – Uslular – – Geokimia, Geofisika, Geosystems
Compilation of data for basal Neogene in Anatolia by McNab et al. (2018, G-cubed) selective and inconsistent, and it will not serve their purpose to show how the appointment of Neogene and Anatolian magmatism is related to processes in the asthenospheric mantle. The authors not only included a small portion of the broad dataset for Neogene basalt, but also a composition that was more developed than basal. In addition, compilation of basal geochemical data throughout Anatolia is based only on longitudinal divisions without considering different tectonic units and geodynamic processes are unrealistic attempts. All these deficiencies produce a false interpretation, especially for understanding the relationship between Neogen-Quaternary volcanism and the increase in Anatolia.
