Cross-shelf exchanges in the Black Sea were investigated using remote sensing data and an ocean circulation model to which an eddy-tracking algorithm and Lagrangian particle tracking model was applied. An anticyclonic eddy in 1998 and a cyclonic eddy in 2000 were investigated in detail. Eddy-induced cross-shelf transport of low salinity and high Chl-a waters reached a maximum in the presence of filaments associated with these eddies. The daily mean volume transport by the eddies was comparable with the previously documented transport by eddies of similar size in the north-western shelf region. Lagrangian particle tracking results showed that 59% of particles initially released over the shelf were transported offshore within 30 days by the 1998 anticyclone and 27% by the 2000 cyclone. The net volume transport across the Black Sea shelf-break reached the maxima in winter, coinciding with the increase in wind stress curl and mean kinetic energy that is a measure of the intensity of the boundary current. Ekman transport directly influences the cross-shelf exchanges in the surface layer. The south-eastern Black Sea is presented as an important area for cross-shelf transport. The total cross-shelf transport can be divided into its "large-scale" and "eddy-induced" components. Eddy-induced transport was 34% and 37% of the total cross-shelf transport (1998-2014) in the Black Sea in the off-shelf and on-shelf directions, respectively, but these values ranged between 25% and 65% depending on the eddy activity over time.


Coupled physical and biochemical data driven simulations of Black Sea in spring-summer: real-time forecast and data assimilation
Besiktepe, ST (2002-12-06)
Data driven simulations in the Black Sea based upon observations during May-June 2001 in the SW part of the basin and coupled 3D physical and biochemical models have been carried out. The model was initialised with the data obtained during 22-28 May, 2001 and ran until 15 June, 2001. The data obtained in the second leg during 12-18 June, 2001 was assimilated into the model. At the time of the assimilation, the model forecast and the data were also compared. Quantitative and qualitative comparisons of the co...
Electromagnetic Scattering from Obstacles in the Near Field Region of Electrically Large Arrays
Cetin, Ramazan; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Nepa, Paolo; Manara, Giuliano (2009-09-18)
In this paper, an efficient method for the analysis of electromagnetic scattering/radiation from the obstacles nearby electrically large array antennas, with nonuniform excitation, is proposed. The approach is based on the combination of a ray field representation of electrically large arrays and a DFT (Discrete Fourier Transform) based representation of array current distribution. Proposed method is applied to a 2D problem: Radiation of a linear array of 2N+1 infinitely long current elements with tapered c...
Electron performance measurements with the ATLAS detector using the 2010 LHC proton-proton collision data
Aad, G.; et. al. (2012-03-01)
Detailed measurements of the electron performance of the ATLAS detector at the LHC are reported, using decays of the Z, W and J/psi particles. Data collected in 2010 at root s = 7 TeV are used, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of almost 40 pb(-1). The inter-alignment of the inner detector and the electromagnetic calorimeter, the determination of the electron energy scale and resolution, and the performance in terms of response uniformity and linearity are discussed. The electron identification, rec...
Hopping conduction in Ga4Se3S layered single crystals
Qasrawi, A.F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2008-11)
The conduction mechanism in Ga4Se3S single crystals has been investigated by means of dark and illuminated conductivity measurements for the first time. The temperature-dependent electrical conductivity analysis in the region of 100-350 K, revealed the dominance of the thermionic emission and the thermally assisted variable range hopping (VRH) of charged carriers above and below 170 K, respectively. The density of states near the Fermi level and the average hopping distance for this crystal in the dark were...
Radar propagation modelling using the split step parabolic equation method
Türkboyları, Alpaslan; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
This document describes radar propagation modelling using split step parabolic wave equation (PWE) method. A computer program using Fourier split-step (FSS) marching technique is developed for predicting the electromagnetic wave propagation in troposphere. The program allows specification of frequency, polarization, antenna radiation pattern, antenna altitude, elevation angle and terrain profile. Both staircase terrain modelling and conformal mapping are used to model the irregular terrain. Mixed Fourier tr...
