Abstract: Fault- and joint-related calcite precipitates are investigated to reconstruct the neotectonic activity in the northwestern extremity of the Isparta Angle (SW Turkey). A preliminary palaeostress analysis allows us to frame the observed fault activity and joint development in the neotectonic history of SW Turkey. The mineralogical and geochemical study of the fault-related calcites indicates that fluids with a long residence time in the Lycean limestone were responsible for their precipitation. The joints, on the contrary, were passively filled with calcites precipitated from infiltrating near-surface meteoric water. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
