A total of 57 surficial sediment samples collected in the Golden Horn Estuary and Izmit Bay (northeastern Marmara Sea) was analyzed for the heavy metals Fe, Mn, Cr, Ni, Co, Zn, Pb, and Cu and the results were compared with various natural and anthropogenic sources.

Possible sources and mechanisms of manganese enrichment in the deep-sea sedıments of the Marmara trough depressions (ne-Mediterranean, Turkey)
ERGIN, M (1994-01-01)
Enrichment of Mn in deep-water relative to shallow-water sediments in the Marmara Basin was investigated using earlier metal data and some geochemical information from other similar marine regions on a comparative basis. Deep-water (1152-1276 m) sediments from the three depressions located along the Marmara Trough of the seismically-active North Anatolian Fault Zone contained much higher Mn concentrations (< 6355 ppm; over 10 600 ppm in some core horizons; on a carbonate-free basis) than those from the surr...
Investigation of the recharge and discharge mechanisms of a complex aquifer system by using environmental isotopes and noble gases
Arslan, Şebnem; Yazıcıgil, Hasan; Department of Geological Engineering (2008)
This study aims to determine the recharge, discharge and the mixing mechanisms of a complex aquifer system located above the Kazan trona ore field using the environmental isotopes of deuterium, oxygen-18, carbon-13 and carbon-14, chlorofluorocarbons (CFC- 11, CFC-12 and CFC-113) and the noble gas isotopes (He, Ne, Ar, Kr and Xe). The groundwater system consists of three different aquifers: shallow, middle and deep. The Akpınar formation lying between deep and middle systems acts as an aquitard. Oxygen-18 an...
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...
GEOCHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE RECENT SEDIMENTS FROM THE SEA OF MARMARA
BODUR, MN; ERGIN, M (Elsevier BV, 1994-07-01)
Six box-cores, one boomerang core and one hundred sixty-six surface sediment samples recovered in the Sea of Marmara were analyzed in an attempt to establish the main controls on distribution and origin of trace metals within the oxic to suboxic basin of this sea.
Source components and magmatic processes in the genesis of Miocene to Quaternary lavas in western Turkey: constraints from HSE distribution and Hf-Pb-Os isotopes
Aldanmaz, Ercan; Pickard, Megan; Meisel, Thomas; Altunkaynak, Şafak; Sayıt, Kaan; Sen, Pinar; Hanan, Barry B.; Furman, Tanya (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-08-01)
Hf-Pb-Os isotope compositions and highly siderophile element (HSE) abundance variations are used to evaluate the mantle source characteristics and possible effects of differentiation processes in lavas from western Turkey, where the eruption of Late Miocene to Quaternary OIB-type intraplate mafic alkaline lavas followed pre-Middle Miocene convergent margin-type volcanism. Concentrations of Os, Ir, and Ru (IPGE) in the OIB-type intraplate lavas decrease with fractionation for primitive melts (MgO > 10 wt%), ...
