Effects of Nutrient Management Scenarios on Marine Food Webs: A Pan-European Assessment in Support of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive
Piroddi, Chiara; et. al. (2021-03-01)
Eutrophication is one of the most important anthropogenic pressures impacting coastal seas. In Europe, several legislations and management measures have been implemented to halt nutrient overloading in marine ecosystems. This study evaluates the impact of freshwater nutrient control measures on higher trophic levels (HTL) in European marine ecosystems following descriptors and criteria as defined by the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). We used a novel pan-European marine modeling ensemble of four...
Effects of climate change on biodiversity: a case study on four plant species using distribution models
Beton, Damla; Bilgin, Cemal Can; Department of Biology (2011)
Conservation strategies are mainly focused on species existing in an environment shaped by natural and anthropogenic pressures. Yet, evidence shows that climate is changing faster than ever and expected to continue to change in the near future, which can be devastating for plants with restricted ranges. Turkey harbors many endemic species that might be affected from these changes. However, available data is scarce and biased, complicating the anticipation of future changes. Aim of this study is to improve o...
Effects of solution mining on groundwater quality in the Kazan trona field, Ankara-Turkey: model predictions
Yazıcıgil, Hasan; Ates, Jale Sakiyan; Çamur, Mehmet Zeki (2009-03-01)
Three aquifer systems as deep, middle, and shallow were identified in the Kazan trona ore deposit area. The flow conditions and the interaction between various layers were conceptualized into a site hydrogeological model. Each aquifer system was hydraulically and chemically characterized and represented in a numerical groundwater model. The resulting model has been calibrated under steady-state and transient conditions using available data. The flow model was used in conjunction with a three-dimensional sol...
Effects of urban regeneration on children’s place use and preferences: The Istanbul case
Severcan, Yücel Can (null; 2014-07-17)
Although much has been written on the social, economic and physical outcomes of urban regeneration, a review of the literature shows that there are few examples of empirical research focusing on the effects of neighborhood regeneration on the place experiences of children, a group that is highly dependent on public spaces but is often excluded from them. Some exceptions include O’Brien’s (2003) study, which compares place preferences of children in different neighborhoods in London, UK; Elsley’s (2004) stud...
Effects of new regional policies on Turkish regional development : the case of Southern Eastern Anatolia Project
Demşek, Sezin; Keskinok, Hüseyin Çağatay; Department of Urban Policy Planning and Local Governments (2003)
In this thesis, changing regional development policies and effects of these in Turkey is discussed. Regional inequalities have been one of the important concerns of the Republic of Turkey. However, the restructuring of state and capitalism during 1980̕s led to a change in regional policies and Turkish regional polices have surely begun to be affected from new policies. Yet, these new policies do not seem to offer much about promoting development in underdeveloped regions. This study aims to analyze the effe...
