Abstract:

The United States Naval Research Laboratory NRL and the NATO Undersea Research Center NURC in collaboration with the Turkish Navy Office of Navigation, Hydrography and Oceanography deployed two mooring sections Aegean Sea and Marmara Sea entrances in the Dardanelles Strait in September 2008 as a part of the TSS08 NURC project and NRLs Exchange Processes in Ocean Straits EPOS project. Each section was configured with two trawl-resistant bottom BARNY moorings containing an acoustic Doppler current profiler, wavetide gauge, and temperatureconductivity sensors and one line mooring equipped with seven pressure, temperature, and conductivity sensors. All moorings were recovered and re-deployed in February 2009. The final recovery of the moorings occurred in October 2009. All moorings returned almost a 14-month long time series of high quality data.
