Theme 1 - Measuring
As a leading marine science institute in Turkey, Middle East Technical University Institute of Marine sciences is currently able to conduct regional comprehensive oceanographic research, including the Eastern Mediterranean, Aegean Sea and Black Sea. Our faculty members can offers variety of expertise on topics but not limited to aquatic pollution, ecosystem modeling, fisheries biology, population genetics, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, litter and microplastics, atmospheric chemistry, aquatic ecology (http://ims.metu.edu.tr/faculty-people).
We have a fully equipped research vessel (http://ims.metu.edu.tr/rv-bilim-2) and on-campus laboratory facilities (http://ims.metu.edu.tr/campus-research-facilities) can offer sample collection and analytical measurements for CECs. Furthermore, our ecological modelling team can offer modelling of transport processes and fate of CECs.
The Institute of Marine Sciences (IMS) (http://ims.metu.edu.tr/) is a leading interdisciplinary centre supporting diverse research and activities in marine science with the objectives of; having strategic priorities to benefit from marine resources in a country surrounded by seas on three sides, sustainable management of human activities related to the sea and the environment, research in the fields of marine science,projects, to cultivate notable scientists through top quality marine science education.
The Graduate School of Marine Sciences with the branches of Marine Geology and Geophysics, Marine Biology and Fisheries and Oceanography, offering postgraduate doctoral and post-doctoral research opportunities. IMS studies are carried out with an emphasis on combined theory and practical laboratory work. Turkey’s first Research Vessel the R/V Bilim 2 belongs to the IMS and important research in Turkey’s four seas continues today.
