Sea Water Quality

DERINSU conducts sea water quality surveys as a part of Environmental Impact Assessments and/or engineering studies. Numbers of samples, parameters to be analyzed and sampling depths are determined based on requirements of the project and Turkish Water Pollution Regulation. All samples are analyzed by certified laboratories.

Some of the measured parameters are:

pH, Dissolved Oxygen (mg/L), Dissolved Oxygen (%), TDS, Cu, Cd, Cr, Pb, Ni, Zn, Hg, As, Phenols, Nutrients (N and P), NH3, Oil-Grease, Total Organic Carbon, Silt Density Index, TRIX, Total Suspended Solids and etc.
