Situated between one of the world’s most tectonically active regions, the Anatolian Peninsula forms a relatively small orogenic plateau (mean altitude 1132 m a.s.l.) that has profoundly affected the geologic, geomorphic and climatic evolution of the eastern Mediterranean. The eastern Black Sea Mountains to the north, the Taurus Mountains to the south and several high volcanoes contain numerous glacial deposits that are well-dated, mainly to the Last Glacial Maximum and subsequent cold phases. Although the periglacial research is still in an incipient state, some landforms at altitudes ranging between ca. 2300 and 2600 m are described in the literature. This paper aims to give an insight into the existing descriptions of periglacial landform and deposits. Apart from a few rock glaciers and rock avalanches, no age constraints exist, and future research should focus on producing periglacial inventories and constraint their associated chronologies. Understanding the timing and formation of the periglacial landscapes is crucial in a world where climatic oscillations and their associated environmental implications become increasingly essential to be predicted.
