Global sea level rise during the transition from the last glacial to the interglacial period changed the coastal morphology of the Aegean, subsequently flooding Neolithic settlements in the coastal areas. For the first time, an underwater survey has been performed in order to investigate human traces of this period on the Çanakkale coast, and a preliminary archaeo-geophysical survey has been carried out in a potential site determined by mapping palaeogeography. The sub-surface and the seafloor were imaged by collecting high-resolution seismic and side-scan sonar data. This study presents a methodological design for the detection of traces of potential submerged settlements; it also determines potential areas to be surveyed in the future and interprets the preliminary results of the marine survey.
