We made an expedition for SGD project successfully in last week. This project aims to understand catchment sea interactions in the East Mediterranean by focusing the role of Submarine Groundwater Discharges in the water and nutrient budget of East Mediterranean.

Our research project funded by TÜBİTAK 1001 programme. 


SGD Project Kick-off Meeting was held online on February 24, 2021. It was great to get toger-ther with all the members of the project team (researchers from Middle East Technical University, Hacettepe University, Akdeniz University and Louisiana State University) to discuss an exicting three years ahead. The meeting started with the overview, then the initial modeling studies and results for the residence times and water budgets were presented. Pilot studies and necessary logistics were discussed. The methodology to be applied for sea/groundwater sampling and radioisotope measurements was reviewed.

It was fantastic to see the project get off to such a strong start, and we have no doubt that the team will continue to succeed for the next three years!
