Our action for climate change

DEKOSIM Centre for Marine Ecosystems and Climate Research was established at METU-IMS to provide information and technical infrastructure support to all organizations related to the sea in Turkey. Within the scope of DEKOSIM, observation systems that can conduct long-term and continuous measurements in Turkish seas are established.
