Scientific Diving Approach on Underwater Researches in Turkey
Türkiye’de Sualtı Araştırmalarında Bilimsel Dalış Yaklaşımı

Çağatay TOPCU [1] , Tuğçe ŞENSURAT GENÇ [2]


Economic, technological, military and scientific developments have taken the lead in human beings to reach the unknown. The increase in technological possibilities has been directed the human to underwater and discoveries have been started on a scientific basis. In this study, it is aimed to quantitatively examine the studies on fisheries and marine sciences which are the major disciplines used diving as a tool or purpose in Turk universities. This study has carried out between May 2018 - August 2019 via face-to-face and online surveys with academicians and graduate students studying on the related departments. Sixty five researchers who stated that they actively engage in scientific diving have participated to the survey. Only 3 of all respondents have had the scientific diver certificate. In Turkey, there is no obligation having the scientific diving certification to conduct scientific diving. This situation is concordant with the opinion of 62% of the respondents. However, 55% of the participants have considered that a national scientific diving committee should be established in Turkey. Such a scientific committee can be had potential to make scientists' effort to insight into marine life and its values more clear.

Ekonomik, teknolojik, askeri ve bilimsel gelişmeler, insanoğlunun bilinmeyene ulaşmasına ön ayak olmuştur. Zaman içerisinde yaşanan teknolojik imkânlardaki artış insanoğlunu su altına yöneltmiş ve su altında gerçekleştirilen keşifler bilimsel temelde meydana gelmeye başlamıştır. Bu çalışmada Türk üniversitelerinde dalışı bir araç veya amaç olarak kullanan başlıca disiplinlerden su ürünleri ve deniz bilimlerinde gerçekleştirilen çalışmaların nicel olarak incelenmesi hedeflenmiştir. Çalışma Mayıs 2018 – Ağustos 2019 tarihleri arasında ülkemiz üniversitelerinin su ürünleri ve deniz bilimleri alanlarında görev yapmakta olan akademisyenler ve lisansüstü öğrencilerle yüz yüze ve çevrimiçi anketler vasıtasıyla yürütülmüştür. Aktif olarak bilimsel dalış yaptığını ifade eden 65 araştırmacı ankete katılım sağlamıştır. Katılımcıların yalnızca 3’ü bilimsel dalıcı brövesine sahiptir. Türkiye’de bilimsel dalış yapabilmek için bilimsel dalıcı sertifikasına sahip olma zorunluluğu yoktur. Katılımcıların %62’sinin görüşü bu durumun devam etmesi yönündedir. Ancak katılımcıların %55’i Türkiye’de ulusal bir bilimsel dalış komitesinin oluşturulması gerektiği kanaatindedir. Böyle bir bilimsel komite, bilim insanlarının denizel yaşamı ve sahip olduğu değerleri anlatmak için gösterdiği çabayı daha görünür hale getirme potansiyeline sahiptir.
