Shipwreck was found in the Gulf of Izmir: during the N swim bay ğı activities of the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, a shipwreck was found which was thought to have sunk at the end of the 1800. It is thought that the sunken ship that was noticed by the experts of the Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology of Dokuz Eylul University during the study of two natural habitats off the coast of Çiğli was a commercial ship carrying cargo from Istanbul to Izmir and that it could be sunk due to the lack of deformation in the main jetty.
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality prepared to sign one of the biggest ecological recycling projects in the world that will return Izmir Bay to bul 70-80 years ago UM, and also encountered important findings about Izmir Bay during the works of the Great Gulf Project. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and TCDD in cooperation with the ad Izmir Bay and Port Rehabilitation Project kapsamında in the scope of the EIA permission received after the work accelerated the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality İZSU General Directorate, the project under the island of Çiğli planned two off the island of life during the study of "sunken ships" discovered. As part of the 'bathymetric, hydrographic and oceanographic survey of the islands of natural habitats ın conducted by the Dokuz Eylül University Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology, a ship was thought to have been sunked at the end of the 1800 in the central Gulf near Çiğli.
Together with Dokuz Eylül-3 ship, Prof.Dr. Dr. Prof. Muhammet Duman, Assoc. Dr. Hüsnü Eronat and Research Assistant Tarık İlhan took a seismic device and lit sonar images suspected of being “sunken H when he felt a difference in computer records. A 42 meter depth, 78 meter length and 8 meter wide sinking ship was detected on these images. It is thought that the ship was a commercial ship carrying loads from Istanbul to Izmir at the end of the 1800s and that it could be sunk because of no deformation in the main dock.
5 in the bay. sunken ship
In the Gulf of Yenikale off the Gulf of Izmir, that is, the Inner Gulf, 4 sunken ships were detected in many previous years. With this new sunken ship detected in the Middle Gulf, this number increased to 5. Yenikale Gulf 19 meters depth 1950'li years of collision as a result of the ship sinking of one of the 120 meters long ship, the other one 80 meters long Karşıyaka - It is thought that there is a passenger ship operating between Göztepe. These ships also serve as reefs in the Gulf.
Dokuz Eylul University Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology, in order to get more detailed information about the newly discovered shipwreck ship in the coming days under the sea will take the image of the camera. The sunken ship, which does not affect the water circulation in the Gulf because it is in the open and 42 meter depth, also serves as a reef.
Since the 1981, Prof. Dr. at Dokuz Eylul University, Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology. Dr. Muhammet Duman stated that they had great excitement. Duman said that they will shoot with unmanned underwater camera and they will have access to more detailed information about the sunken ship. L It is said that one of our old heroes sank the ship while they were evacuating the Izmir Museum and leaving the Izmir Museum during the war. However, it is similar to the commercial ships carrying cargo from Istanbul to Izmir at the end of the 1800s. We are happy to have revealed such archeology of the sea. We don't know if it's malfunctioning or storming, but no visible signs of impact. He may have a tear to his side. In the coming days we will get more detailed information about the new sunken ship.
