Evaluation of 3-D spatial distribution of dissolved oxygen concentrations in a eutrophic lake

Düzgün, Şebnem
Aksoy, Ayşegül
In this study, three-dimensional (3-D) ordinary kriging of dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations was performed for a eutrophic reservoir based on 81 sampling points using Stanford Geostatistical Modeling Software (SGeMs). Potential hotspots (problematic zones in terms of water quality with high/low DO concentrations) not only at the surface but also in deeper layers of Porsuk Dam Reservoir (PDR) were evaluated. Moreover, 3-D distributions of DO, and specific conductivity (SC) were examined against the thermocline layer identified using the 3-D temperature data. Thermocline layer existed between 10 and 14 m below the surface based on 3-D temperature data. This result showed that the traditional approach of collecting samples from mid-depths may cause incomplete characterization and evaluation of water quality as thermocline layer may not coincide with mid-depth. Although the variation in SC values and temperatures above and below the thermocline layer were relatively homogeneous, this was not the case for DO. 3-D DO distribution suggested a better location for water withdrawal for domestic purposes. 3-D DO maps generated by predicting data at unmeasured locations at different depths could be used as input for 3-D water quality estimation in the reservoir through model simulations in future. Moreover, the outcomes can also be useful in the segmentation (physical configuration) of the water body for future water quality modeling studies.

An evaluation of potential sampling locations in a reservoir with emphasis on conserved spatial correlation structure
YENİLMEZ, Firdes; Duzgun, Sebnem; Aksoy, Ayşegül (2015-01-01)
In this study, kernel density estimation (KDE) was coupled with ordinary two-dimensional kriging (OK) to reduce the number of sampling locations in measurement and kriging of dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations in Porsuk Dam Reservoir (PDR). Conservation of the spatial correlation structure in the DO distribution was a target. KDE was used as a tool to aid in identification of the sampling locations that would be removed from the sampling network in order to decrease the total number of samples. Accordingl...
Prediction of multiphase flow properties from nuclear magnetic resonance imaging
Karaman, Türker; Akın, Serhat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2009)
In this study a hybrid Pore Network (PN) model that simulates two-phase (water-oil) drainage and imbibition mechanisms is developed. The developed model produces Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) T2 relaxation times using correlations available in the literature. The developed PN was calibrated using experimental relative permeability data obtained for Berea Sandstone, Kuzey Marmara Limestone, Yeniköy Dolostone and Dolomitic Limestone core plugs. Pore network body and throat parameters were obtained from ser...
Assessment of diffusive and convective mechanisms during carbon dioxide sequestration into deep saline aquifers
Özgür, Emre; Gümrah, Fevzi; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2006)
The analytical and numerical modeling of CO2 sequestration in deep saline aquifers having different properties was studied with diffusion and convection mechanisms. The complete dissolution of CO2 in the aquifer by diffusion took thousands, even millions of years. In diffusion dominated system, an aquifer with 100 m thickness saturated with CO2 after 10,000,000 years. It was much earlier in convective dominant system. In diffusion process, the dissolution of CO2 in aquifer increased with porosity increase; ...
Determination of susceptibility to intergranular corrosion and electrochemical reactivation behaviour of AISI 316L type stainless steel
Aydogdu, G. H.; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (2006-11-01)
In this study, double loop electrochemical potentiokinetic reactivation (DLEPR) test was applied to determine the degree of sensitization in 316L type stainless steel, where obtained results were correlated with revealed microstructures after oxalic acid test and weight loss measurements of Streicher and Huey acid tests. Best agreement was provided with test parameters which are 1 M H2SO4 and 0.005 M KSCN at 0.833 mV/s scan rate at 30 degrees C. Specimens were classified structurally as absence of chromium ...
Optimization and field application of a filter pack system for the simultaneous sampling of atmospheric HNO3, NH3 and SO2
Karakas, D; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (1997-06-01)
Optimization and field application of a filter pack system for the simultaneous collection of atmospheric gas-phase HNO3, NH3 and SO2 have been studied. A Teflon prefilter was used to remove particulate matter. Nylon filter, oxalic-acid-treated Whatman 41 filter and sodium-carbonate-treated Whatman 41 filter were used for the collection of HNO3, NH3 and SO2, respectively. For the collection of gas-phase HNO3, nylon filters had better efficiency and capacity as compared to NaCl-impregnated Whatman 41 filters...
