Sedimentary response to the tectonic uplift of the Kyrenia Range, northern Cyprus, in its Eastern Mediterranean tectonic setting


Welcome to my homepage. I am currently a PhD student working on the tectonic uplift of the Kyrenia Range in northern Cyprus. This work is being carried out with Professor Alastair Robertson, Professor Hugh Sinclair, Professor Dic Kroon and Mehmet Necdet.

This is a multidisciplinary study involving sedimentology, palaeomagnetism, luminescence field profiling and dating, uranium series dating and strontium dating.
