14. The most outstanding contribution of the candidate in the field of Earth Sciences as an indivudual and as a group member with famous scientists at international joint projects

Prof. Helvacı’s life-long study on the Borate minerals, especially those which has commercial values (Borax, Ulexite, Colemanite as such), that lead the scientific community to better understand the order of formation and the models involved which were further proved by the mineralogical, sedimentological, petrographic and isotopic methods.

Prof. Halvacı further proved that Colemanite (a Ca-borate mineral) the very first time has deposited as a primary mineral through his research not only in Turkey but also world-wide (north-America, south-America, and other parts of the world), and also through experimental and laboratory work. Thus, these findings lead researchers to observe and postulate new models of research methods and to look for new potential fields, and thoughts to discuss further.

It is further detectable to trace the source region of the bor minerals (being Turkish, American and other fields of the World) by analysing borate isotopes. Furthermore, it is also evident to trace the which borate minerals used through the anlyses of waste products of the detergents as well as the source region.

By studying boron isotopes, it is esly to identify the depositional processes and models involved, and the mineral phases during the deposition and diagenesis and transformation.

Prof. Helvacı’s studies on the Na-Carbonate and related minerals resulted the discovery and the depositional model of the second biggest trona fleld of the world (Beypazarı, Ankara-Turkey), and he has further established the geology, mineralogy and geochemistry of the deposits.

Prof. Helvacı’s isotopic studies (oxygen, sulfur, oxygen-sulfur, stronsium) on the evaporates (Na-sulfates, Ca-sulfates as such) of Neogene basins in western and central Turkey established the presence of Na-sulfates transformed from Ca-sulfates. His main findings, thus, proved very first time world-wide that these have very specific textures. In addition, his research on B, Sr, O and S isotopes on evaporate minerals present in the Tertiary basins lead us to formulate the relationship between the age, origin, formation, source and mineral transformation during the deposition and diagenesis.

Prof. Helvacı’s research on iron-ore deposits (Avnik, Bingöl-Turkey) also compared along with Scandinavian iron-ore deposits lead us to conclude and speculate a new formation models. This field discovered is one of the most refered ore-deposit in the world.
