The aim of this work is to build an inital model for and calculate the premium of an insurance scheme against drought proposed by TARSIM. The payoff of the insurance scheme is similar to that of a call option on the yield variable. We compute the premium using normal, gamma and beta distribution for the yield and examine how the premium depends on the parameters of these distributions. We find that, when we fix the mean and the variance of the yield, the premium computed under different distributions depends little on the distribution used for the yield.

Indicator-based evaluation of inter-linkages between different sustainable development objectives (INDI-LINK)
Kalaycıoğlu, Hediye Sibel(2006-11-31)
The INDI-LINK project has three main objectives: (1) further improvement of sustainable development indicators (SDI), (2) assessment of interlinkages between the different priorities of the EU SDS and (3) deriving conclusions for future SD policy making. To achieve these objectives, INDI-LINK will develop new concepts and methods and improve data for the calculation of selected 'best-needed' and proxy indicators; test different methods for extending indicator time series through forecasting; review emer...
Common agricultural policy regionalised impact - the rural development dimension (CAPRI-RD)
Öcal, Nadir(2013-4-30)
The Common Agricultural Policy Regionalised Impact – the Rural Development Dimension (CAPRI-RD) aims to develop and apply an operational, Pan-European tool including all Candidate and Potential Candidate countries to analyse the regional impacts of all policy measures under CAP Pillar I and II across a wide range of economic, social and environmental indicators, aligned with the CMEF. CAPRI-RD’s core contains consistently linked economic models at the NUTS 2 level, the CAPRI model for agriculture, and a new...
Drought Forecasting with Time Series and Machine Learning Approaches
Evkaya, Ömer Ozan; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (null; 2017-12-08)
As a main reason of undesired agricultural, economic and environmental damages, drought is one of the most important stochastic natural hazard having certain features. In order to manage the impacts of drought, more than 100 drought indices have been proposed for both monitoring and forecasting purposes [1], [3]. For different types of droughts, these indices have been used to understand the effects of dry periods including meteorological, agricultural and hydrological droughts in many distinct locations. I...
Feedback motion planning of unmanned surface vehicles via random sequential composition
Ege, Emre; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert (SAGE Publications, 2019-08-01)
In this paper, we propose a new motion planning method that aims to robustly and computationally efficiently solve path planning and navigation problems for unmanned surface vehicles (USVs). Our approach is based on synthesizing two different existing methodologies: sequential composition of dynamic behaviours and rapidly exploring random trees (RRT). The main motivation of this integrated solution is to develop a robust feedback-based and yet computationally feasible motion planning algorithm for USVs. In ...
Optimum bidding strategy for wind and solar power plants in day-ahead electricity market
Özcan, Mehmet; Keysan, Ozan; Satır, Benhür (2021-01-01)
There are two possible strategies for wind power plants (WPPs) and solar power plants (SPPs) to maximize their income in day ahead markets (DAM) in the presence of imbalance cost: joint bidding (JB) via collaboration by participating to balancing groups and deployment of storage technologies. There are limited studies in the literature covering the comparative analysis of “JB strategy” with “battery deployment (BD) strategy”. In the existence of balancing responsibility, the comparative analysis of these st...
