In this thesis study wind-induced circulation and sediment transport in semi-enclosed basins are carried out for Fethiye Bay. Hydrodynamics of bays are very complex, mainly affected by wind and wave climate, sea bed slope and sediment characteristics. The sea bed profile at the bay changes under winter and summer storms of different speeds and directions. A case study is carried out with the developed methodology. For this reason, Fethiye Bay is selected for the study area. Present structure of Fethiye Bay is determined, sea bed changes since the year 1956 are analyzed. A circulation modeling is applied to the study area. For this purpose, Finite Volume Coastal Ocean Model (FVCOM) numerical model is used. Water exchange and current pattern in the study area for different wind conditions is analyzed. Sediment distribution in the bay is analyzed for different wind directions, river discharges and sediment loads.

SPATIAL VARIATIONS OF PARTICULATE ORGANIC MATTER (POM) COMPOSITION AND CONCENTRATIONS IN SURFACE WATERS AND SEDIMENTS OF THE MERSIN BAY
Akçay, İsmail; Tuğrul, Süleyman; Department of Oceanography (2015-9-8)
Spatial and temporal variations of hydrophysical properties (temperature, salinity, density), eutrophication-related parameters (nutrients, Chl-a, dissolved oxygen) and particulate organic matter (POM) concentrations and composition (C/N/P) in water column and surface sediments were examined at 33 stations between April 2014 and February 2015 in Mersin Bay located at northeastern (NE) Mediterranean. Regional and seasonal distributions of nutrients in the Mersin Bay are affected by human-induced pressures. H...

Design of settling basins and related problems encountered in practice
Zaloğlu, Fatma Deniz; Göğüş, Mustafa; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
Settling basins are the hydraulic structures used to get sediment-free water from rivers mostly for hydropower systems. Mainly fine sediment is trapped along the settling basins and from time to time the accumulated sediment in the settling basin is flushed away. A wrong design of a settling basin creates lots of problems. In this study based on the hydraulic analysis of a settling basin, the available settling basin design procedures in the literature were reviewed. Some of the settling basins constructed ...
Climate change effects on nitrogen loading from cultivated catchments in Europe: implications for nitrogen retention, ecological state of lakes and adaptation
Jeppesen,Jeppesen, Erik,Erik; Kronvang, Brian; Olesen, Jorgen E.; Audet, Joachim; Sondergaard, Martin; Hoffmann, Carl C.; Andersen, Hans E.; Lauridsen, Torben L.; Liboriussen, Lone; Larsen, Soren E.; Beklioglu, Meryem; Meerhoff,Meerhoff, Mariana,Mariana; Özen, Arda; Özkan, Korhan (2011-03-01)
Climate change might have profound effects on the nitrogen (N) dynamics in the cultivated landscape as well as on N transport in streams and the eutrophication of lakes. N loading from land to streams is expected to increase in North European temperate lakes due to higher winter rainfall and changes in cropping patterns. Scenario (IPCC, A2) analyses using a number of models of various complexity for Danish streams and lakes suggest an increase in runoff and N transport on an annual basis (higher during wint...
Seismic evidence of shallow gas in the sediment on the shelf off Trabzon, southeastern Black Sea
Okyar, M; Ediger, V (1999-04-01)
High-resolution seismic surveys carried out on the shelf off Trabzon (southeastern Black Sea) show that the sub-bottom stratigraphy consists of two main depositional sequences (A and B) one of which contains zones of acoustic turbidity. Of these, the upper depositional sequence (A) is thought to comprise Holocene sediments, while the lower depositional sequence (B) is interpreted as approximating to the Pleistocene. The boundary between these sequences is defined by a reflector (R), which is interpreted as ...
