ABSTRACT Maritime transportation is the most eligible solution about international trade transportation not only the world sea area but also the Turkish Sea Area. Due to the Technological progress, population growth, increasing human living standards and general needs, rapid industrialization, researching new energy sources forced to develop about maritime transportation standards. The Turkish Straits sea area is consist of Strait of the Istanbul (Bosphorus), Strait of the Canakkale (Dardanelle) and also Sea of the Marmara. The Turkish Straits have really importance from the history because of the geopolitics, strategic and geographic situations and also being the gate that connected the Asian and Europe continents. Besides all these importances, Turkish Straits have really different geographic infrastructure. In this way, many factors must be taken into consideration in the marine sciences. Most of the time, meteorological, hydrographic, Oceanographic conditions due to serious risk factors for marine transportation consist of. For these circumstances, need to deeply survey at the Turkish Strait about marine science, find all the risk factors at the end need to shown by the charts on the bridge of the ships and coastal facility for use all the mariners and should be surveyed and investigated for the future maritime transportation on the Turkish Straits. All These results could have chance to make future maritime transportation and safety navigation planning, management and their policies for Turkish Straits. With this working, try to explain the marine science and their surveys importance for future maritime transportation planning decrease the collisions which aimed at the minimizing shipping accident and protect all the straits shoreline by the regulations and protecting marine environment at the Turkish Straits.
