Details of EMSO / MAREGAMI Marmara bottom pressure and current records


Dataset identification

Title of datasetEMSO / MAREGAMI Marmara bottom pressure and current records
Narrative summary of datasetEMSO is a European network of seabed and fixed-point water column observatories whose scientific objective is to acquire long time series in the seas around Europe for the study of environmental processes related to interactions between geosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere. MAREGAMI project (MARine Earthquake Gap Assessment and Monitoring for Istanbul) is a bilateral Turkish-French collaborative project coordinated by IFREMER and Istanbul Technical University and funded by ANR and TÜBITAK. The goal of MAREGAMI was the development of new methods and monitoring strategies to assess earthquake and tsunami risks related to offshore faults, with tasks: (1) Marine geodesy: acquisition and processing of geodetic submarine data, (2) Hydrodynamics and specific depositional processes: water column data acquisition and hydrodynamic modeling, (3) Improving earthquake relocation with ocean bottom instruments, (4) Designing an optimal and sustainable network of submarine sensors. Data distributed here were acquired for MAREGAMI Task 2.  These consist of time series acquired during 4 deployments on the sealfoor perfomed between January 2018 and November 2020 of an instrumented frame holding a RBR bottom pressure recorder (BPR) and a Seaguard recording current meter (RCM) equipped with additional sensors (conductivity, oxygen, tide pressure end temperature). The acquisition and distribution of marine data time series in the Sea of Marmara is funded by EMSO-France Research Infrastructure, EMSO-Link, and MAREGAMI projet. DT-INSU provided operational support and instrumentation. Important Note: This submission has been initially submitted to SEA scieNtific Open data Edition (SEANOE) publication service and received the recorded DOI. The metadata elements have been further processed (refined) in EMODnet Ingestion Service in order to conform with the Data Submission Service specifications.
