Short summary
The dominant circulation pattern of the Gulf of İzmir on the Aegean Sea coast of Turkey is studied taking into consideration the influence of wind and thermohaline forces. The free surface version of the Princeton model is applied with the input data obtained through the measurements made by the research vessel K. Piri Reis. As a result of the simulations with artificial wind, the strong consistent wind generates circulation patterns independent of the seasonal stratification in the Bay.
