Journal or Book TitleThe Black Sea - Geology, Chemistry, and Biology, Memoir Number 20
Primary author or editorGunnersos, Charles G.; Ozturgut, Erdogan;
Description"The Bosporus is a historic strait 31 km long, whose bathymetry suggests the occurrence of earlier flood flows. Small semidurnal and fortnightly tides often are obscured by wind effects which occasionally reverse the southerly surface flow from the Black Sea. At depth, north-flowing Mediterranean water maintains the surface salinity of the Black Sea at about 17.5%. The location, thickness, and slope of the boundary layer vary according to the bathymetry, season, and winds."--Title page
