The objective of this cruise was to recover from the Central Basin an instrumented frame deployed during a previous Istanbul University R/V Yunus-S cruise, May 8-9, 2019, recover the data recorded by the instruments, do maintenance, and redeploy the frame at another site, in Imrali basin. The frame was successfully recovered. The RBR/Paroscientific (Digiquartz) bottom pressure recorder functioned properly throughout the 6-month deployment. The other instrument, a Seaguard doppler recording current meter (RCM) equipped with additional sensors, operated properly during the whole period, except for the conductivity sensor. The instrument was at the outlet of a canyon located close to the epicenter of the Sept 26, 2019 Magnitude 5.8 earthquake. Following the earthquake instrumented frame was tilted and recorded hydrodynamic disturbances and an increase of turbidity. The instrumented frame was redeployed at the planned location without incident
