The Ceyhan-Osmaniye volcanic field, as summarized by Gursoy et al. (2003), includes basaltic eruptions from about 20 vents (Yurtmen et al., 2000) dated between 0.61 +/- 0.10 and 2.25 +/- 0.78 Ma (Arger et al., 2000). Outcrops and volcanic units along the Karatas Osmaniye Fault Zone NE of the Gulf of Iskenderum are described by a variety of names by different workers. Lava flows along the NW shoreline are identified by Gursoy et al. (2000) as the Botas Volcanics, while those just inland to the NE towards the city of Toprakkale are the Osmaniye Volcanics. The Osmaniye lava flows include a number of preserved vent locations, including the Delihalil Tepe tephra cone.
