Gessner (earth and environment, U. of Western Australia) et al. provide a field guide to the tectonics of Samos and the Menderes Massif in the eastern Mediterranean section of the Theyan orogen. They present outcrop descriptions, maps, and diagrams that explore the along-strike variations in the Hellenide-Anatolide orogen, including the architecture of the Early Tertiary Alpine nappe stack and its Miocene extensional overprint. After discussion of the geology of the Eastern Mediterranean, the guide presents a two-day field guide to outcrops in Samos Island, Greece, then a six-day guide that explores the Antolide Belt in western Turkey where the Menderes nappes form the tectonic footwall below the Cycladic Blueschist Unit, sections across the Bozdag and Aydin Mountains, and the southern margin of the Menderes Massif in the Milas-Selimiye area. The geology, general architecture, and structural history of these areas is also covered, and access and location coordinates are given. No index is included.
