DDPH in sea water, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH's) in sediment and in some marine biota were monitored for the period of August 1981 and April 1984. Maximum DDPH was measured in winter and minimum in summer. This phenomena showed an inverse relation with the sea water temperature. Increase in sea water DDPH concentration reflected itself immediately in fish liver but two months time lack between fish liver and flesh was observed. GLC analysis results of sea water extracts and various crude oil showed that the petroleum hydrocarbons in the Gulf was mainly originated from Kirkuk crude oil.


Distribution of tin in the northeastern Mediterranean
Yemeni̇ci̇ğlu, Semal; Saydam, Cemal; Sali̇hoğlu, İlkay (Elsevier BV, 1987)
Concentrations of tin, one of the naturally methylated elements, was determined in sea water, sediments and organisms, collected from the Northeastern Mediterranean. A hydride generation technique was employed, in which the tin and methyltin, were converted to their hydrides. The hydrides produced were detected by atomic absorption spectrophotometer. On the average, the inorganic tin content of sea water samples ranged between 1.1–236 ng/1. Although the dominant methyltin species was dimethyltin, all forms ...
2 toxicants, mercury and tin in the Gulf of Iskenderun
Salihoğlu, Barış; Yemeni̇ci̇og̈lu, Semal (Elsevier BV, 1987)
The concentrations of total mercury and tin in the sediment samples collected from İskenderun bay were determined by utilizing atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Mercury concentration of the samples was determined by cold vapor, and tin concentration by hydride generation techniques. The highest mercury concentrations were measured infront of İSDEMİR (Iron and stell complex) with a value of 550 μg/g (dry weight). The mercury concentrations were found to decrease with distance from the shore. Sediment samp...

The organic carbon contents and textural composition of a total of 166 surficial sediment samples (from 10 to 1226 m water depths) together with data on primary productivity rates and dissolved oxygen concentrations have been studied to investigate the main controls on the distribution of organic carbon buried within the modern sediments across the Sea of Marmara.
Assessment of seawater intrusion in a coastal aquifer by using correlation, principal component, and factor analyses
Karahanoğlu, Nurkan (Wiley, 1997-05-01)
Hydrogeochemical characterization of the Erzin Plain coastal aquifer has been accomplished in this research to investigate the spatial and transient behavior of its water quality. The aquifer is located along the Mediterranean coast and forms one of the most productive aquifers in Turkey. Chemical analyses of groundwater samples collected from the aquifer during 1964-1968 (128 samples), May 1993 (30 samples), October 1993 (37 samples), and June 1994 (20 samples) constitute the available groundwater quality ...
The chemical composition of Black Sea suspended particulate organic matter pyrolysis GC MS as a complementary tool to traditional oceanographic analyses
Coban Yıldız, Yesim; Chiavari, D; Fabbri, D; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Tuğrul, Süleyman (Elsevier BV, 2000-03-01)
A “traditional” description of the abundance and chemical composition of suspended particulate organic matter (POM) in open and coastal waters of the southern Black Sea in June 1996 has been confirmed and extended by pyrolysis–gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (Py-GC/MS) analyses. Py-GC/MS provided depth profiles of the relative concentrations of twenty three marker compounds characteristic of chlorophylls (CHL), lipids, carbohydrates (CBH) and proteins produced by thermal degradation of the POM retained...
