  20. 20. Stratigraphy and rock types of the Galatian volcanic complex. A note to non-earthscientists; Let’s remind that theEarth created geosites for itself, not for us.However, a geopark can serve mutually.
  21. 21. An effective geopark is really needed in this regionas a-geosites have been disturbing and b- villages are getting emtied.
