Short-term statistics of wind waves around the Turkish coast

Akbaşoğlu, Sinan
In this thesis, the wind-wave records obtained at three locations along the Turkish coasts (Alanya, Dalaman and Hopa) are analyzed. Probability distributions of individual wave characteristics (wave height, wave period and wave steepness) are obtained and compared with the model distributions. Goodness of fit of the observed distributions is checked by Chi-square test and Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests. Joint probability distribution of individual wave heights and periods is also studied and compared with the theoretical distributions. The relationships among various statistical wave height parameters and statistical wave period parameters are investigated and compared with the theoretical and reported values.


Relationships between the Sakarya Zone and the Ankara-Erzincan suture (central-northern Turkey): geological and petrographic data from the Ankara-Cankiri, Corum and Amasya areas
Pandeli, Enrico; Elter, Franco Marco; Toksoy Köksal, Fatma; Principi, Gianfranco; Orlando, Andrea; Valleri, Gigliola; Giusti, Riccardo; Orti, Letizia (2018-02-01)
The study was performed in central-northern Anatolia (from Ankara to Amasya) to investigate the relationships of the Sakarya Zone units and the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan suture (IAES) melange. It reveals that all the Sakarya Zone units are metamorphic and three main tectonostratigraphic units have been distinguished for the first time: the BAA (metasiliciclastic rocks capped by metacarbonates and varicoloured phyllite), the BKC (poly-metamorphic garnet-bearing micaschist and metabasite with a well-preserved rel...
Palaeomagnetic evidence for the Gondwanian origin of the Taurides and rotation of the Isparta Angle, southern Turkey
Piper, JDA; Gursoy, H; Tatar, O; Isseven, T; Kocyigit, A (2002-10-01)
The Taurides, the southernmost of the three major tectonic domains that constitute present-day Turkey, were emplaced following consumption of the Tethyan Ocean in Late Mesozoic to mid-Tertiary times. They are generally assigned an origin at the northern perimeter of Gondwana. To refine palaeogeographic control we have investigated the palaeomagnetism of a range of Jurassic rocks. Forty-nine samples of Upper Jurassic limestones preserve a dual polarity remanence (D/I = 303/ - 9(degrees), alpha(95) = 6degrees...
A study on posidonia oceanica (l.) delile, 1813 seagrass meadows in the levant sea
Çelebi, Billur; Gücü, Ali Cemal; Department of Marine Biology and Fisheries (2007)
In this thesis, the distribution and state of Posidonia oceanica meadows along the Turkish coast of the north eastern Mediterranean was investigated. The study area was a unique site due to the presence of eastern geographical limit of Posidonia oceanica meadows in Mediterranean Sea. It was aimed to assess the possible reasons of the absence and/or regression in relation to environmental changes. The study was conducted from September 2004 to January 2007 in 5 main regions between Anamur/Mersin and Samandag...
Evaluation of site effect within the tectonic basin in the northern side of Ankara
Eker, Arif Mert; Kockar, Mustafa Kerem; Akgün, Haluk (2015-06-18)
This study mainly concentrates on the determination of site effects for the Plio-Quaternary and especially alluvial soils of the Cubuk district and its close vicinity in Ankara, Turkey. In the study area, particularly in the vicinity of the asymmetric graben that has formed due to the tectonic activities along the NE-SW trending normal faults, a microtremor survey was implemented to identify the local site response under a possible seismic event. The results were compared and correlated by using passive and...
Differentiation and classification of counterfeit and real coins by applying statistical methods
Tansel, İçten; Kalaylıoğlu Akyıldız, Zeynep Işıl; Demirci, Şahinde; Department of Archaeometry (2012)
In this study, forty coins which were obtained from Museum of Anatolian Civilizations (MAC) in Ankara were investigated. Some of those coins were real (twenty two coins) and the remaining ones (eighteen coins) were fake coins. Forty coins were Greek coins which were dated back to middle of the fifth century BCE and reign of Alexander the Great (323 – 336 BCE). The major aims of this study can be summarized as follow; • To analyze coins under study to determine elemental contents and to measure physical prop...
