Detection and identification of greenhouse gases using infrared hyperspectral imagery

Gür, Yusuf
Recently, one of the most critical global environment problems is human and ecological exposure to hazardous wastes from urban, agricultural, industrial and military activities. These wastes often include greenhouse gases like water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone and other organic chemicals. To protect the environment from those gases, hyperspectral imaging can be applied due to its ability to extract large amount of spatial and spectral information. Detection of gases emitted into the atmosphere is a widely studied problem. These studies generally use external information about the scene to determine missing parameters in order to detect and identify gases. In this study, unsupervised detection and identification possibility of different greenhouse gases emitted from various sources in selected regions with infrared hyperspectral imagery will be investigated.


Investigating the uptake and acquisition of potentially toxic elements in plants and health risks associated with the addition of fresh biowaste amendments to industrially contaminated soil
Yousaf, Balal; Liu, Guijian; Abbas, Qumber; Wang, Ruwei; Imtiaz, Muhammad; Zia-ur-Rehman, Muhammad (2017-11-01)
Soil contamination by potentially toxic elements (PTEs), due to rapid industrialization and urbanization, is a serious environmental concern that has been threatening both the sustainability of various agroecosystems and human health. Efforts to investigate the bioavailability, transfer, and accumulation of PTEs in the soil-plant system and their possible health consequences have almost exclusively focused in the past studies. However, there is limited evidence for increased human exposure to PTEs through d...
Multispektral görüntü serilerinden bozkırların tespiti
Nabdel, Leili; Çağlayan Demirbaş, Semiha; Zeydanlı, Uğur Siyami; Leloğlu, Uğur Murat (null; 2018-09-21)
Bozkırlar, ekolojik açıdan büyük öneme sahiptir ve doğal kaynak yönetimi veya biyoçeşitlilik koruma gibi çalışmalar için bozkır alanlarının doğru olarak bilinmesine ihtiyaç vardır. Ancak, genel amaçlı arazi örtüsü sınıflandırmalarında bozkır sınıflandırma doğruluğu genellikle düşüktür. Bu çalışmada uzaktan algılama yöntemi ile bozkırların sınıflandırılmasına yönelik bir algoritma önerilmiştir. Bitki fenolojisinden azami seviyede faydalanmak için çok-zamanlı multispektral Sen...
Evaluation of Organochlorine Pesticides (OCPs) and Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) Concentrations in the River and Marine Sediments of Samsun Coastline

Today, the persistent organic pollutant loads which are formed as a result of modern agriculture and industrial production are becoming very dangerous for the environment and human health. Exposure of living things to these pollutants can occur by direct exposure to pollutants emission or by transport of pollutants as a result of food chain and meteorological events. For this reason, all environmental samples should be analyzed in this context and risk assessments should be made especially for regions where...
Pollution haven hypothesis and the role of dirty industries in Turkey's exports
Akbostancı Özkazanç, Elif; Tunç, Gül İpek (2007-04-01)
The pollution haven hypothesis maintains that the industries that are highly pollution intensive, i.e. dirty industries, have been migrating from developed economies to the developing world. It is argued that the environmental concerns of the developed economies caused them to enact strict environmental regulations, which have increased the cost of production of the dirty industries at home. On the other hand, the developing countries with their low wages and lax environmental regulations have been attracti...
Screening of various types biomass for removal and recovery of heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Ni) by biosorption, sedimentation and desorption
İmamoğlu, İpek; Evıson, Lm; Holland, Fs; Hancock, Ic (1998-01-01)
The increasing awareness of accumulation of heavy metals in the environment has led to a quest for new and improved "clean" technologies. In this regard, an innovative heavy metal removal process composed of biosorption, sedimentation and electrolysis was developed. This study covers the comparison of various types of waste biomass including bacteria (S.rimosus), yeast (S.cerevisiae), fungi (P.chrysogenum) and activated sludge as well as marine algae (F.vesiculosus and A.nodosum), for their efficacy in the ...
