Geological morphology and climate
impact on the landscape in Konya
Konya Plain is one of the most important plains of Turkey.
There are various natural structures because of climate,
geological morphology and water shortage. The name of this
natural formation is swallow hole. This hole occurs by falling
down of underground spaces.
Chalky stones in the underground cause these enormous
holes. These holes ;deep of which about 100 metres, are the
ones of touristic places in our country. Continental climate in
Konya is quite hard, snowy in winters and very dry in
summers so these geological formation appears easily.
You can see these gigantic holes in certain places of Konya.
The holes may be sometimes dangerous for people who live in
Karapınar desert is the one desert land in turkey .the big
effect of the climate can be seen in these lands. A lot of
tourists come to see here every year. Also this desert is the
result of global warming in the world.
The name of this lake is Meke.the lake emerges by explosion in
underground.it’s panaromic view
and geological structrue is
wonderful.there are also various birds that you can see .this is an
example that shows effects of climate,geological morphology in
Cappadocia is a historical region in Nevşehir , Central Anatolia. The
relief consists of a high plateau over 1000 m in altitude that is pierced
by volcanic peaks, with Mount Erciyes near Kayseri.There are
fantastic fairy chimneys that are worth to see. Due to its inland
location and high altitude, Cappadocia has a markedly continental
climate, with hot dry summers and cold snowy winters. Cappadocia’s
geological morphology,climate ,vegetation cover are similar to lots of
places in Central Anatolia.
