The water balance, with large seasonal and annual water level fluctuations, has a critical influence on the nitrogen and phosphorus dynamics of shallow lakes in the semi-arid climate zone. We constructed seasonal water and nutrient budgets for two connected shallow lakes, Lakes Mogan and Eymir, located in Central Anatolia, Turkey. The study period covered 20 years with alternations between dry and wet years as well as restoration efforts including sewage effluent diversion and biomanipulations in Lake Eymir...

Ponds are globally the most numerous yet neglected freshwaters because of their small size and shallowness. Ponds are important freshwater bodies as they largely contribute to aquatic biodiversity. They can also act as a sink or source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, depending on their condition. Many studies show that CO2 and CH4 emissions from shallow freshwater bodies such as ponds are significant. In freshwaters, respiration produces CO2 when there is oxygen; when there is no oxygen respiration produ...
Impact of untreated hospital effluents on dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes
Kayalı, Osman; İçgen, Bülent; Department of Biotechnology (2019)
Hospital wastewaters (HWWs) were reported to be hotspots for antibiotics and antibiotic-resistant bacteria. However, little is known about the impact of these effluents on the dissemination of antibiotic-resistance genes (ARGs). In this study, therefore, HWWs were monitored for 16S rRNA gene for overall bacterial genes and seven ARGs of aadA, tetA, cmlA, sul1, qnrS, ermB and blaCTX-M corresponding to commonly used antibiotics aminoglycosides, tetracyclines, amphenicols, sulfonamides, quinolones, macrolide-l...
Impact of wastewater treatment plants on dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes
Küçükünsal, Serkan; İçgen, Bülent; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) as hotspots of the antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) pose risk to receiving environments. Removal of ARGs through WWTPs, therefore, is great importance. For this reason, common types of WWTPs including conventional activated sludge (CAS), biological nutrient removal (BNR), sequencing batch reactor (SBR), membrane bioreactor (MBR), package MBR, WWTP with coagulation-flocculation and UV disinfection units were investigated in terms of their seasonal removal efficiencies on...
