The Bosphorus Strait, connecting the Black Sea (above) to the Sea of Marmara (below) divides the city of Istanbul, Turkey, in two. The Sea of Marmara has an area of 11,350 km² (280km x 80km) with the greatest depth reaching 1,370 m.

In this orthorectified image, some of the large, indented bays of the sea are visible cutting into the Turkish terrain on either side of the Koroglu Mountains. These include the Gulf of Izmit, center right, whose waters appear light grey, and the Gulf of Gemlik, center bottom. The body of water visible inland between these two gulfs is Lake Iznik.
