About Us

The negative impact of natural processes such as increasing population and climate change over the resources of the Earth system are dramatically increasing. Gebze Technical University Institute of Earth and Marine Sciences (GTÜ-IEMS) was established on October 21, 2014 (Law number: 6562) with an environmental perspective aiming to use sustainably, considering the conservation of the environmental dynamics. The Institute has started the active research in August 2018 after the completed the necessary infrastructure works. The research domain of the institute covers the whole world. For this reason, water resources, including the seas, are the focus of the research carried out at the Institute. In the researches, water resources basins are considered at the micro - macro level so that all the factors affecting water resources (hydrology, vegetation, soil cover, land use, geology, etc.) can be included.
