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.

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...
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...
PREPARATION AND DISSEMINATION OF THE AVERAGED MAPS AND FIELDS OF SELECTED SATELLITE PARAMETERS FOR THE BLACK SEA WITHIN THE SeaDataNet PROJECT
Orek, H.; Myroshnychenko, V. (2010-01-01)
Statistical sea surface temperature (SST) and chlorophyll a (Chl.a) maps and fields (monthly, seasonal and annual) have been prepared for the Black Sea region in the framework of the SeaDataNet project. Daily MODIS/Aqua (SST and Chl.a) and SeaWiFS (Chl.a) level 2 (L2) datasets were utilised to produce 1 km resolution final products, which are disseminated through the Internet. Data processing was done with the SeaDAS (SeaWiFS Data Analysis System) software package. Standard algorithms were used for calculat...
The Coastal Circulation Model of Büyük Menderes River and Adjacent Coastal Areas
Özyurt Tarakcıoğlu, Gülizar (null; 2019-05-13)
In this study, circulation model of Büyük Menderes River and the adjacent coastal areas willbe presented. Büyük Menderes runs through the second biggest alluvial plains in Turkey anddischarges into the Aegean Sea where fishing and tourism are main income for the region.Therefore, an accurate representation of water circulation is important both for the waterquality in the bay and the morphodynamics at the coast of Büyük Menderes Delta.Finite Volume Coastal Ocean Model (FVCOM) is used for the circulation mod...
The role of mesoscale processes controlling biological variability in the Black Sea coastal waters: inferences from SeaWIFS-derived surface chlorophyll field
Oguz, T; Deshpande, AG; Malanotte-Rizzoli, P (Elsevier BV, 2002-06-01)
Several different time series of chlorophyll images from the 1997-2000 Seaviewing, Wide Field-of-view Sensor data set have been analysed to gain a perspective on the dynamical and biological variability in the Black Sea, particularly oil its northwestern shelf region and along the Anatolian coastal zone. The images are interpreted in terms of documenting the close link between biological production and physical dynamics of the boundary system, and of emphasizing the role of eddy processes on controlling mes...
