Modeling the water quality of lake eymir using artificial neural networks (ann) and adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (anfis)

Aslan, Muhittin
Lakes present in arid regions of Central Anatolia need further attention with regard to water quality. In most cases, mathematical modeling is a helpful tool that might be used to predict the DO concentration of a lake. Deterministic models are frequently used to describe the system behavior. However most ecological systems are so complex and unstable. In case, the deterministic models have high chance of failure due to absence of priori information. For such cases black box models might be essential. In this study DO in Eymir Lake located in Ankara was modeled by using both Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS). Phosphate, Orthophospate, pH, Chlorophyll-a, Temperature, Alkalinity, Nitrate, Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen, Wind, Precipitation, Air Temperature were the input parameters of ANN and ANFIS. The aims of these modeling studies were: to develop models with ANN to predict DO concentration in Lake Eymir with high fidelity to actual DO data, to compare the success (prediction capacity) of ANN and ANFIS on DO modeling, to determine the degree of dependence of different parameters on DO. For modeling studies “Matlab R 2007b” software was used. The results indicated that ANN has high prediction capacity of DO and ANFIS has low with respect to ANN. Failure of ANFIS was due to low functionality of Matlab ANFIS Graphical User Interface. For ANN Modeling effect of meteorological data on DO data on surface of the lake was successfully described and summer month super saturation DO concentrations were successfully predicted.


Modeling biogeochemical dynamics in porous media: Practical considerations of pore scale variability, reaction networks, and microbial population dynamics in a sandy aquifer
King, E. L.; Tuncay, Kağan; Ortoleva, P.; Meile, C. (Elsevier BV, 2010-03-01)
Prediction of the fate and environmental impacts of groundwater contaminants requires the identification of relevant biogeochemical processes and necessitates the macroscopic representation of microbial activity occurring at the microscale. Using a well-studied sandy aquifer environment, we evaluate the importance of pore distribution on organic matter respiration in a porous medium environment by performing spatially explicit simulations of microbial metabolism at the sub-millimeter scale. Model results us...
Modeling the water quality in Ulubat Lake
Yenilmez, Firdes; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Department of Environmental Engineering (2007)
Lakes can be used for recreational purposes, agricultural irrigation, domestic water supply or industrial use. However, these functions of the lakes can be impaired due to excess nutrient loadings from industrial facilities, agricultural activities, and discharge of wastewaters from sewage systems. Uluabat Lake is one of the important lakes in Turkey faced with water quality problems due to excess nutrient loading from point and non-point sources. In this study, Water Quality Analysis Simulation Program (WA...
Investigation of light attenuation in Lake Eymir
Atiker, Selen; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Sanin, Selim; Department of Environmental Engineering (2012)
Light penetration and attenuation has significant impact on the water quality of lakes. Algal activity, which is important for the levels of several water quality parameters, is dependent on light penetration besides availability of nutrients. In this study, change in light penetration and attenuation in Lake Eymir was studied. The relationships of extinction coefficient (ke), and water quality parameters were investigated. The effect of ke on Chl-a over nutrients were investigated. The water quality parame...
Assessment of seawater intrusion in a coastal aquifer by using correlation, principal component, and factor analyses
Karahanoğlu, Nurkan (Wiley, 1997-05-01)
Hydrogeochemical characterization of the Erzin Plain coastal aquifer has been accomplished in this research to investigate the spatial and transient behavior of its water quality. The aquifer is located along the Mediterranean coast and forms one of the most productive aquifers in Turkey. Chemical analyses of groundwater samples collected from the aquifer during 1964-1968 (128 samples), May 1993 (30 samples), October 1993 (37 samples), and June 1994 (20 samples) constitute the available groundwater quality ...

Water quality properties and trophic status of Keban Dam Reservoir have been assessed in detail. The dissolved oxygen contours exhibited somewhat unusual behaviour of temporarily established intermediate layers of low dissolved oxygen concentrations. The phytoplankton species were identified and their composition was evaluated. The reservoir is eutrophic in general terms. However, lotic and limnetic zones of the reservoir have shown different trophic status.
