Pollution Chronology of the Golden Horn Sediments.

1991-12-01
Sediment accumulation in the Golden Horn has been established by means of a useful geochronological technique; 210Pb Radiometric Dating Method. The 210Pb dating technique revealed a sediment accumulation rate of 3.5 cm yr−1 which is very reasonable given the characteristics of the Golden Horn. The 210Pb profile also revealed three distinct levels in the sediments of the Golden Horn; a surface layer with nearly uniform activities, an exponential decay interval and a lower region with almost constant low activity.

POLLUTION CHRONOLOGY OF THE GOLDEN HORN SEDIMENTS

Application of a flow-measurement structure for sediment-laden streams
Göğüş, Mustafa; Altan Sakarya, Ayşe Burcu (2009-10-27)
Generally, measurement of flow in natural streams is accomplished by measuring the flow depth. Hence, the relationship between the water level and discharge should be obtained in advance. However, in streams with high sediment load, the bottom level may change due to sediment deposition, preventing the single relation between water level and discharge. This paper summarizes the application of a flow-measurement structure for sediment-laden streams. The proposed structure is designed and built in Turkey and ...
Wave - Induced Suspended Sediment Flux Degradation due to Emergent Vegetation
Koroglu, Aysun; Elginoz, Nilay; Oğuz, Elif; Kabdasli, M Sedat (2012-06-22)
It is well known that sediment movement is affected by aquatic vegetation under flow and wave conditions. However this impact is not fully understood yet. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of emergent vegetation on suspended sediment flux under wave conditions. In this context, an experimental study was conducted and wave orbital velocities and suspended sediment concentrations are measured through 4 m long emergent reeds under regular waves. Suspended sediment fluxes were calculated and the ...
METAL POLLUTION IN THE GOLDEN HORN, TURKEY - CONTRIBUTION OF NATURAL AND ANTHROPOGENIC COMPONENTS SINCE 1913
Teksöz, Gaye; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (1993-01-01)
Historical records of the Golden Horn, so named in antiquity because of its shape, were examined to construct the pollution history of the area and to find out the past and present-day entries of pollutants and hence the impact of man. The pollution level of the Golden Horn by metals is presented by comparison which the continental soil and two other polluted water bodies: Savannah River Estuary and Narragansett Bay. Metals are distinguished as crustal and anthropogenic according to their enrichment factors...
Selective Preconcentration of Gold from Ore Samples
Refiker, Hurmus; Merdivan, Melek; Aygun, Ruveyde Sezer (Hindawi Limited, 2018-9-12)
A simple and selective method has been developed for preconcentration of gold in ore samples. The method is based on use of N, N-diethyl-N’-benzoylthiourea (DEBT) as selective chelating agent and Amberlite XAD-16 as solid sorbent. Sorption behavior of gold with DEBT impregnated resin under optimized conditions has been studied in batch process. The gold ion capacity of the impregnated resin is calculated as 33.48 mg g<jats:sup>−1</jats:sup> resin (0.17 mmol g<jats:sup>−1</jats:sup> resin). The selective pre...
