The Effect of the Use of Wave Data for the Numerical Simulation of Shoreline Evaluation

Manavgat River flows into the Mediterranean sea at southern coasts of Turkey. The river mouth being unstable shoals and shifts seasonally, preventing continuous navigation of boats and yachts through the entrance channel of river mouth. To stabilize the river mouth some alternative structures are studied and jetty type structure is chosen as the protection structure. The shoreline change of the Manavgat River mouth with and without protection structure is studied by using one line model for shoreline evolution. Two different sets of wave data (as seasonal or yearly averages) are used as the inputs of the model. The effects of different wave data sets on the shoreline changes are compared and discussed.


The trophic and fishery impact of invasive Nemipterus randalli (Russell, 1986) in the northeastern Mediterranean Sea
Akgün, Yağmur; Bilgin, Cemal Can; Akoğlu, Ekin; Department of Biology (2022-8-31)
The Eastern Mediterranean Sea is one of the most invaded marine ecosystems under the impact of Lessepsian species which migrated from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea after the construction of the Suez Canal. The impacts of Lessepsian species on the indigenous fish and fisheries can be both positive and negative. This study aimed to delineate the commonly seen Lessepsian species Randall’s threadfin bream (Nemipterus randalli)’s impact on the food web and fishery dynamics besides current ecosystem health...
The distribution of man-made and naturally produced halocarbons in a double layer flow strait system
Fogelqvist, E; Tanhua, T; Basturk, O; Salihoglu, I (1996-08-01)
The Bosphorus Strait, which connects the Black Sea and Mediterranean Sea via the Marmara Sea, is characterised by two distinct water masses. The upper layer consists of low density Black Sea water (sigma-t 10-11) flowing southward, and it is underlain by high density water (sigma-t > 28) of Mediterranean origin flowing northward. The sharp density gradient between the two layers is due to the difference in salinities. Here we report measurements on a suite of low molecular weight halocarbons together with b...
Modelling long term morphological changes with XBeach case study of Kizilirmak River mouth
Baykal, Cüneyt; Güler, Işıkhan; Özyurt, Gülizar; Söğüt, Erdinç; Güler, Hasan Gökhan; Doğan, Gözde Güney (2015-04-17)
The Bafra alluvial plain, where the Kızılırmak River discharges into the Black Sea, is one of the most critical examples of severe coastal erosion problems in Turkey. The amount of sediment carried by the Kızılırmak River has decreased from approximately 23 million ton per year to 0.46 million tons/year starting from 1960s as a result of construction of flow regulatory structures in the following years. This drastic decrease in the amount of sediment carried by the river resulted in a severe shoreline retre...

In 7 different region which represent most used harbors, ports and fishing shelters in the Sea of Marmara and Black Sea in Turkey coasts. Ecological Quality Status was assesed by sampling soft -bottom macrozoobenthos from 22 stations in 2014.
Application of a three-dimensional numerical model to the idealized conditions of the bosphorus strait.
Sözer, Adil; Özsoy, Emin; Department of Marine Sciences (2002)
The Bosphorus Strait is a narrow and shallow channel between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea which plays an important role in the Turkish Straits System connecting the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. The exchange flow through the Bosphorus Strait is principally determined by geometry and stratification, and exhibits a complex nonlinear response to forcing by the net water budget, pressure and wind setup effects in adjacent basins. This study aims for a better understanding of the behaviour of the ...
