The Bosphorus strait is an outstanding example of the sea straits with its spatial and temporal change of current pattern. The Bosphorus Strait is a strongly stratified two-layer system and a unique case of the maximal exchange regime of strait flows, which largely determines the properties of the Black Sea. In this study, the latest investigations will be compiled with the old ones and also the effect of an underwater construction in the Bosphorus will be discussed. Hence the impacts of an underwater construction on the Marine Environment will be also evaluated with the Ecological Study.
