The Karlıova Triple Junction at the junction of the East and North Anatolian Faults

The Karlıova Triple Junction is a geologic triple junction of three tectonic plates: the Anatolian Plate, the Eurasian Plate and the Arabian Plate.

The Karlıova Triple Junction is found where the east-west trending North Anatolian Fault intersects the East Anatolian Fault coming up from the southwest. Because each arm of the junction is a transform fault (F), the Karlıova Triple Junction is an F-F-F type junction.
