A comprehensive set of data collected during 1986-1992 reveal seasonal and interannual variability in the circulation and hydrography of the Marmara Sea. Waters, which have contrasting properties and originate from the adjacent basins, supply the two-layer stratified flows in the Sea of Marmara. Turbulent entrainment into the upper layer in the exit region of the Bosphorus jet, and wind-stirring in winter, both contribute equally to the basin vertical mixing.
