A CRITICAL REVIEW OF THE TOOLS & TECHNIQUES USED IN COASTAL PLANNING: CASE STUDY MUGLA-GÖKOVA SPECIAL ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AREA Yusufoğlu, Ayça M. S., Programme of City Planning Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Serap Kayasü June 2010, 119 Pages This study focuses on the issue of coastal area management in terms of planning techniques and tools as well as legal aspects necessary in order to clarify the components of a successful coastal area planning process. It has been emphasized that planning of the coastal area should be performed within the context of integrated policy mechanism considering maintance of biodiversity, public participation and, promoting diversification among coastal related economic uses such as tourism, aquaculture, fishing. The thesis haS been grouped into according to definitions of coastal area, coastal planning and legislation, institutions, organizations, international commisions regarding coastal areas and Gökova Special Environment Protection Area from the perspective of Integrated Coastal Management (ICM). The case section of the thesis formed by five phases of Gökova SEPA 1/25.000 scaled Environmental Relation Plan in order to achieve ICM. Also, this is the first study performed by the reviewing of the tools and techniques used in the Gökova SEPA towards Integrated Coastal Management approach.


An Evaluation of Land Use Land Cover (LULC) Classification for Urban Applications with Quickbird and WorldView2 Data
Cavur, Mahmut; Nabdel, Leili; Kemeç, Serkan; Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem (2015-04-01)
Monitoring and analysis of the land and rapid environmental change, leads to the use of Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) classification approaches from remote sensing data. The main focus of this aper is to illustrate the practical approach to analysis and mapping of land use and land cover features using high resolution satellite images. The study is carried out for two different places, Basel and Tel Aviv. For this purpose, Quickbird satellite imagery is used for Basel and WorldView2 imagery for Tel Aviv. T...

Long-term impacts of acidic depositions on soils can be predicted with coupled applications of acid deposition models and approaches to assess soil acidification. Soil acidification assessment can be achieved by using the following approaches: (i) Mechanistic modelling (ii) Experimental acid buffering capacity (ABC) method (iii) Qualitative evaluations The mechanistic modelling approach adopted in this study utilises predicted acid deposition rates and soil properties as well as dominant soil mechanisms inc...
A Critical analysis of social dimension in sustainable development: a case study of Tepekışla dam and hepp in Tokat, Niksar
Köse, Pınar; Kalaycıoğlu, Hediye Sibel; Department of Social Policy (2012)
This study aims to make a critical analysis of the social dimension of sustainable development as implemented within the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process. Social dimension can be assessed on the basis of six social indicators, which are social accountability, local self-reliance, basic human needs, degree of participation, equity, and appropriate technology. In this context, a field study is conducted in four villages which will be affected by the Tepekışla Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant (Pr...
A comprehensive parametric study on the performance of seismic-isolated bridges
Dicleli, Murat (null; 2006-07-16)
This paper presents the effect of isolator and substructure properties as well as the frequency characteristics and intensity of ground motion on the performance of seismic-isolated bridges (SIBs) and examines some critical design clauses in the AASHTO (American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials) Guide Specification for Seismic Isolation Design. For this purpose, a parametric study, involving more than 800 nonlinear time history analyses of simplified structural models representative of ...
A preliminary design approach for Güledar irrigation dam project
Karpuz, Celal (1996-03-01)
This paper describes the results of engineering geological and rock mechanics studies carried out at the Güledar irrigation dam project. Project is designed to regulate the drainage and to irrigate the agricultural areas. The dam site is located within Güledar Sirkeli formations composed of sandstone, limestone and diabase. Studies maintained both at field and laboratory. Field studies included geological mapping, core drilling, sampling for laboratory testing, pressurized water tests, and intensive discont...
