Devonian rocks in the Eastern Taurides are represented by the Ayıtepesi, Şafaktepe and Gümüflali formations. These lithostratigraphic units have been investigated along the measured Halevikdere Section (Sarız region, Eastern Taurides, Turkey). The Ayıtepesi Formation has a thickness of 425 m and is built up by quartzitic, cross-bedded sandstones, well bedded dolomitic layers and some shaly intervals in the Halevikdere Section (Wehrmann et al. 2010). The Şafaktepe Formation is represented by a limestone-dominated facies in the middle part of the section which is highly affected by tectonics. The Gümüşali Formation consists of limestones, shales and siltstones.
