Modeling Temperature and Pricing Weather Derivatives Based on Temperature
Tastan, Birhan; Hayfavi, Azize (2017-01-01)
This study first proposes a temperature model to calculate the temperature indices upon which temperature-based derivatives are written. The model is designed as a mean-reverting process driven by a Levy process to represent jumps and other features of temperature. Temperature indices are mainly measured as deviations from a base temperature, and, hence, the proposed model includes jumps because they may constitute an important part of this deviation for some locations. The estimated value of a temperature ...
Analyses of atmospheric and marine observations along the Turkish coast
Tutsak, Ersin; Özsoy, Emin; Department of Physical Oceanography (2012)
Time series and spectral analyses are applied to meteorological data (wind velocity, air temperature, barometric pressure) and sea level measurements from a total of 13 monitoring stations along the Turkish Coast. Analyses of four-year time series identify main time scales of transport and motion while establishing seasonal characteristics, i.e. distinguishing, for instance, between winter storms and summer sea-breeze system. Marine flow data acquired by acoustic doppler current pro filers (ADCP) is also a...
Filtering of satellite images in geological lineament analyses: an application to a fault zone in Central Turkey
Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi (1998-04-01)
Lineament extraction and analysis is one of the routines in mapping large areas using remotely-sensed data, most of which is the satellite images. In this study, we aimed to test different lineament extraction techniques including single band, multiband enhancements and spatial domain filtering techniques. A fast algorithm has been developed for time and cost limited surveys in an area with known dominant and/or any selected orientation of lineaments. During the study for single band analysis, histogram equ...
Discursive continuity of political nationalism as a form of opposition politics in modern Iran
Arıkan Sinkaya, Pınar; Altunışık, Meliha; Department of International Relations (2015)
The dissertation examines political nationalism as a transformative power of modern Iranian politics at the societal level through historical-sociological study of four mass opposition movements, which are the Constitutional Movement (1906-11), National Front Movement (1949-53), Iranian Revolution Movement (1978-79), and Green Movement (2009). The appeal to nationalism by these opposition movements leads to ask why and how nationalism becomes an overarching ideology of political opposition? What are the str...
Modified Atmosphere Packaging of Foods
Kırtıl, Emrah; Kilercioğlu, Mete; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2015-10-01)
In this article, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) is discussed briefly. The need for MAP, types of MAP systems, MAP gases, and their uses are described. Application of MAP on meat, poultry, fresh produce, and seafood products is explained with examples. The recommended levels for the gas compositions for different food systems are given. A simple mathematical approach for designing MAP systems using the optimum gas composition data is also introduced.
