Oceanography of the Black Sea: a review of some recent results
Ozsoy, E; Unluata, U (1997-11-01)
A new synthesis of the Black Sea oceanography is presented, primarily based on studies carried out in the southern Black Sea, as well as on some recent work covering the entire basin, obtained in a new era of increasing cooperation between the riparian countries. A review of the physical environment is given. Seasonal and interannual climatic variability of the system are discussed in relation to its hydrology. Water mass variability and formation are studied, with emphasis on the inflow of Mediterranean wa...

Ocean acidification (OA) is a serious consequence of climate change with complex organism-to-ecosystem effects that have been observed through field observations but are mainly derived from experimental studies. Although OA trends and the resulting biological impacts are likely exacerbated in the semi-enclosed and highly populated Mediterranean Sea, some fundamental knowledge gaps still exist. These gaps are at tributed to both the uneven capacity for OA research that exists between Mediterranean countries,...
Ocean Literacy across the Mediterranean Sea basin: Evaluating Middle School Students' Knowledge, Attitudes, and Behaviour towards Ocean Sciences Issues
Koulouri, Panayota; Mogias, Athanasios; Mokos, Melita; Cheimonopoulou, Maria; Realdon, Giulia; Boubonari, Theodora; Previati, Monica; Formoso, Alba Tojeiro; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan; Hassaan, Mohamed Aly; Patti, Patrizia; Korfiatis, Kostas; Fabri, Sandra; Juan, Xavier (2022-01-01)
The Mediterranean Sea is characterized by rich biodiversity, and its region hosts people living in several countries with a rich variety of cultures, but - at the same time - it is "under siege", due to anthropogenic pressures. To address these pressures, many actions are needed aiming, among others, at establishing Ocean Literacy (OL) across the Mediterranean countries and preparing the future generation of Mediterranean Sea-literate citizens. Towards this aim, the present cross-national study investigated...
Oceanization of the northern Neotethys: Geochemical evidence from ophiolitic melange basalts within the Izmir-Ankara suture belt, NW Turkey
Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Sayıt, Kaan (2010-04-01)
The remnants of the Neotethyan Izmir-Ankara Ocean, the main branch of Neotethys in the eastern Mediterranean are represented by the Dagkuplu Melange Complex in Central Sakarya, NW Turkey. It comprises several blocks or tectonic slices of pillow lavas, some of which include mudstones and radiolarian cherts as intra-pillow-fillings or interlayers. In the Igdecik area, a huge basaltic block has been studied in detail Geochemical data reveal three distinct basalt types separated by sheared contacts The first of...
