Coal exploration activities continue in the vicinity of Çeltikçi town located at 20 km southeast of Kızılcahamam district in Ankara province. The purpose of this study is conduct hydrogeological characterization and investigation of the watershed of Çeltikçi coal basin. In order to accomplish this purpose (1) existing data related to study area were compiled and reviewed; (2) monthly instantaneous flow measurements were conducted to evaluate runoff and surface water flow potential in the study area, (3) exploration wells and pump wells were opened and aquifer tests and groundwater level measurements were conducted at these wells, (4) field quality parameters were measured from all monitoring points and water sampling were conducted from these monitoring wells for detailed laboratory analysis, and (5) water bearing units and relation between them were identified, spatial distribution of aquifer hydraulic parameters, spatial and temporal variation of water levels, spatial and temporal variation of water quality, boundary conditions and conceptual groundwater budget were analyzed. The results of this study present the groundwater problems which can be encountered in future mining operations planned in the field.

Hydrogeological investigation and characterization of Alpu sector-A coal field in Eskisehir-Turkey
Düz, Tevfik Kaan; Yazıcıgil, Hasan; Department of Geological Engineering (2018)
The purpose of the study is to investigate and characterize the hydrogeological conditions at the Alpu Sector-A Coal Field which is located in the Eskisehir Province in Turkey. This is required to provide baseline hydrogeological information before environmental impact assessment of the planned mining operations can be done. The characterization studies included hydrogeological and hydrochemical analysis of groundwater and surface water. The spatial and temporal variations in groundwater levels are determin...

Scenario Planning for Water Resources A Saudi Arabian Case Study
Dejong, Remy Lucıen; Yazıcıgil, Hasan; Allayla, Rashıd Ibrahım (1989-01-01)
Uncommonly rapid development of the oil-rich Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia has led to heavy stresses on the local groundwater resources and there has arisen concern for the adequacy of supply to sustain future growth. Whereas oil is the only significant export commodity, the demand for it has an important and immediate impact on water exploitation activities. In this article four development scenarios are considered, each resulting in a specific water abstraction pattern. The hydrologic consequences of e...
Neotectonics and seismicity of the Ankara region : a case study in the Uruş area
Kaplan, Tülin; Koçyiğit, Ali; Department of Geological Engineering (2004)
Study area, the Urus province, is located 70 km WNW of city of Ankara. Major settlements in the study area are two counties, Urus and Güdül; and there are a number of villages, such as, from W to E, Macun, Yogunpelit, Kabaca, Üregil, Özköy, Tahtaciörencik, Kirkkavak, Kavaközü, Kayi and Karacaören. The study area is 189 km2 in size and included in 1/25000-scaled topographic quadrangles of H28a3, a4, d1 and d2. The Güdül- Urus section of the Çeltikçi morphotectonic depression (Çeltikçi Basin) drained by the A...
Management strategies for the Lower Seyhan catchment
Onur, AK; Ekemen, E; Soyupak, S; Yurteri, C (1999-01-01)
The Seyhan river has a total catchment area of 20,731 km(2) with major pollution sources located downstream of the Seyhan Dam in Adana. The so-called Lower Seyhan, is under the threat of nor only domestic and industrial wastewater discharges originating from the metropolitan area of Adana, but also agricultural wastes of the fertile Cukurova Plain. In this study, the present and future water qualify characteristics of the Lower Seyhan have been investigated by means of a mathematical modelling study based o...
