Checklist of copepods (Calanoida and Podoplea) from the northern Levantine basin shelf waters

2002-08-01
This paper is based on the qualitative and quantitative description of planktonic materials collected from the northern Levantine basin shelf waters during the period 1998-1999. Analysis of a total of 75 zooplankton samples collected along the Turkish Mediterranean coast has shown the presence of approximately 200 copepod species. Among these, 76 species are recognised for the first time in this region including four new species. At present, the total list of copepod species from the Levantine basin numbers 233, with several Indo-Pacific species included. The copepod species inhabiting the region are interesting not only because of faunistic properties, but also due to their distribution, which is related to the existing current regime.

A REVIEW OF THE LEVANTINE BASIN CIRCULATION AND ITS VARIABILITY DURING 1985-1988
OZSOY, E; HECHT, A; UNLUATA, U; BRENNER, S; OGUZ, T; BISHOP, J; LATIF, MA; ROZENTRAUB, Z (Elsevier BV, 1991-04-01)
The variability of the Levantine Basin circulation and hydrography is reviewed based on a collection of recent data sets. The major emphasis is placed on the complexity of the associated dynamics. The region is shown to be populated with synoptic and mesoscale dynamic features. In addition to the complexity arising due to the heterogeneity of water masses and the variability of the atmospheric and thermohaline forcing, the confines of the relatively small basin causes the sub-basin-scale gyres to be in c...
Assessment of the trophic status of the Mersin bay waters, Northeastern Mediterranean
Kaptan, Mehmet Salih; Tuğrul, Süleyman; Department of Chemical Oceanography (2013)
Identifying the spatial and temporal variability of eutrophication related indicators such as Chlorophyll-a (Chl-a), oxygen saturation (DO%), dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) and total phosphorus (TP), as a measure of the potential pressures and productivity, were measured within the Mersin Bay, a wide shelf region of the Cilician Basin located in the Northeastern Mediterranean Sea. This study aims to characterize the trophic status of the water masses in the eastern shelf waters of the bay fed by river d...
Kuzey Haymana’da (Ankara, Türkiye) üst paleosen – alt eosen istifinde planktonik foraminifer biyostratigrafisi ile ilgili ilk bulgular
Tanık, Gamze; Altıner, Sevinç (2017-04-10)
Bu çalışma Haymana Havzası’nda Paleosen Eosen Termal Maksimumun (PETM) planktonik foraminifer kaydını belirlemeyi amaçlayan yükseklisans tezinin ilk bulgularını içermektedir. PETM, yaklaşık 56 milyon yıl önce gerçekleşmiş olan bir küresel ısınma olayıdır. Bu olay planktonik foraminiferlerde dönüşüme neden olmuş, Planktonik Foraminifera Ekskürsiyon Taksonları (PFET) adı verilen üç farklı tür Paleosen/Eosen (P/E) sınırında ortaya çıkmış ve PETM’in bitişiyle yok olmuşlardır. P/E sınırı ve PETM’yi belirlemek am...
DISTRIBUTION OF SURFICIAL SHELF SEDIMENTS IN THE NORTHEASTERN AND SOUTHWESTERN PARTS OF THE SEA OF MARMARA - STRAIT AND CANYON REGIMES OF THE DARDANELLES AND BOSPORUS
ERGIN, M; BODUR, MN; EDIGER, V (Elsevier BV, 1991-02-01)
Surficial sediment samples collected from the northeastern and southwestern shelf regions of the Sea of Marmara, together with data available from other sources, indicate marked variations in sediment compositions resulting from differences in topographical, hydrological and biological conditions. In the strait channels of the Dardanelles and Bosporus, where strong undercurrents prevail, the floor was covered mostly by coarse-grained sediments (rich in sand and gravel). However, in areas of relatively low e...
Estimation of phytoplankton biomass using HPLC pigment analysis in the southwestern Black Sea
Ediger, D.; Soydemir, N.; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan (2006-01-01)
The phytoplankton population of the southwestern Black Sea in May 2001 was studied by taxonomic analysis using microscopic examination and by pigment analyses using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Pigment data, which identified phytoplankton assemblages dominated by dinoflagellates, diatoms and coccolithophores in May 2001, were compared to phytoplankton cell counts and biomass. There were significant (p < 0.002-0.01, r=0.56-0.67) relationships between the taxon-specific pigment concentration...
