Distribution of population and Industy in the

Marmara Region: Anthropogenic inputs

30 % of Turkey’s population

more than 50% Turkey’s

industry located in this region

Inputs from

Black Sea

Heavy maritime

transport

Natural sediment inputs mainly

from the southern drainage basin

Mater and Gürpınar (1992)

  • Main features of Sea of Marmara as an EMSO node

  • Geotectonic setting on the North Anatolian Fault: Earthquake, submarine landslide and associated tsunami risk

  • Oceanographic setting between Mediterranean Sea and Black Sea

  • Environmental risks of pollution from industrial, municipal and maritime transportation

D2.4. Reaching an official agreement between key stakeholders for the work in the Sea of Marmara Node.


Emso marmara node project meeting of turkish stakeholders on 29 may 2009

EMSO Marmara Node Project Meeting of Turkish stakeholders on 29 May 2009

Attended by the Vice-Rector of ITU for Research and

representatives of stakeholders (major research

institutes and government organizations)

The main points of consensus reached:

Considering EMSO project being important for the SoM,

the stakeholders will constitute a consortium, and apply to

Turkish Government with a project proposal for the

establishment of the EMSO Marmara node infrastructure


Implementation plan for observatory infrastructure

Implementation Plan for Observatory Infrastructure

Project proposal to be submitted to Turkish Government by

May 2010 will cover Capex and Opex for three years.

The proposal need to justify:

  • Societal and scientific needs

  • Long-term sustainability of infrastructure (operation and maintenance)

  • ITU administration will consider the project as high priority one and provide office space, personnel and other support

  • 2) MTA will provide ship services for operational and

  • maintenance purposes

  • 3) Support letters from organizations that could contribute to Opex


Meeting with the union of municipalities in the marmara region 1 october 2009

Meeting with the Union of Municipalities in the Marmara Region : 1 October 2009

  • a support letter for the project proposal, stating contribution towards operational expenses

Meeting with SMEs planned during November 2009

  • Important for showing the technological and economical aspect of the observatories.


Other financial work

Other Financial Work

Industrial funding

  • Turkish Petroleum Company (TPAO) (http://www.tpao.gov.tr): A seminar about EMSO and ESONET projects and project activities in the Sea of Marmara node was presented to the technical and scientific staff of TPAO in Ankara on 19 February 2009.

  • Private petroleum companies with exploration concession in the Sea of Marmara were alsoinformed about the EMSO and ESONET in June 2009:

    a) Merty Energy and Petroleum Exploration

    b) Toreador Turkey Limited

    c) Thrace Basin Natural Gas Türkiye Corporation


Wp s 4 7 financial and strategic w ork continued

WPs 4&7 Financial and strategic work(continued)

To generate funding in Turkey, we need support throughworkshops demonstrating the use of seafloor observatories to funding organizations, related industries,scientific community and public at large


Wp 3 legal work

WP.3. Legal Work

National Legislation (Task 3.2)

  • Worked with the Legal Department and EC Project Office of the ITU. The result is that there is no legislation in Turkeyspecifically related seafloor observatories.

  • Permission from Marine Affairs Department needed (KOERI’s experience).

  • According to the Turkey's environmental legislation there is no need for Environmental Impact Assessment (EPA) (http://www.cedgm.gov.tr/mevzuat/yonetmelik/cedyonetmeligi.htm for a typical deep seafloor observatory set up.

  • In case the observatory is a coastal one, the Ministry of Public Works and Settlement (http://www.bayindirlik.gov.tr/english/index.php

    should be informed.


Wp 3 legal work continued

WP.3. Legal Work(continued)

The deployment and security issues for seafloor

observatories concerns mainly twogovernmental

Departments in Turkey :

  • Department of Navigation, Hydrography and Oceanography (TN-ONHO) of Turkish Navy (http://www.shodb.gov.tr/english.html)

  • Turkish Coast Guard Command (http://www.sgk.tsk.tr/en_index.htm)

    We had meetings with these organizations concerning

    these issues.

    Trawling and ship anchorage are important risks for

    seafloor cables and observatory stations.
