Anatolia is situated in the Eastern Mediterranean region between 36°- 42°N and 26° - 45°E. The geological records of paleoglaciations in the high terrains of Anatolia are key archives to quantify pale-oclimate change in the Eastern Mediterranean area. The climate of the Eastern Mediterranean region is influenced by three main atmospheric systems: the main middle to high latitude westerlies, the mid-latitude subtropical high-pressure systems, and the monsoon climate. Glacial geological studies in Turkey have started...
