Copious quantities of microplastics enter the sewage system on a daily basis, and hence wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) could be an important source of microplastic pollution in coastal waters. Influent and effluent discharges from three WWTPs in Mersin Bay, Turkey were sampled at monthly intervals over a one-year period during 2017. When data from all WWTPs were combined, fibers constituted the dominant particle form, accounting for 69.7% of total microplastics. Although notable oscillations in micropl...

In this study, Chiral Metamaterial Sensor (CMS), which is designed by utilizing a Split Ring Resonators (SRR) has been employed to reveal the two different types of sensor applications by experimentally and numerically. These applications include purity demonstration of methanol, ethanol and isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and fuel adulteration applications for petrol. All of the validations have been realized by measuring the complex permittivity values and reflection coefficients by using a vector network analyze...

Marine litter and microplastic pollution is a growing problem for the world and Turkish seas. In this study, the levels of microplastics in surface water, water column, sediment as well as in fish digestive system from the northeastern Mediterranean Sea were studied in 2015 and 2016. The impact of virgin microplastics on seabream juveniles was also investigated at the laboratory. Number of microplastics in surface water were between 16339 and 520213 particles km-2 in 2015, and, between 39559 and 1043675 pa...
