Instrumental neutron activation analysis, flame atomic absorption spectrometry, flame atomic emission spectrometry, graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry, ion chromatography and visible spectrometry were applied to determine the compositions of atmospheric aerosols, which were collected at a rural site in the Western Black Sea Coast of Turkey. A total of 354 daily aerosol samples were analyzed for about 46 trace and major elements and ions. Sample preparation, quality control procedures, and instrumental operating conditions were reported. Most of the elements measured commonly by the above techniques have very large correlation coefficients and low intercept values indicating the agreement between the results.

KARAKAŞ, DURAN; Olmez, I; Tosun, S; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2004-01-01)
Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA), flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS), flame atomic emission spectrometry (FAES), graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GF-AAS), ion chromatography (IC) and visible spectrometry (VIS) were used to determine the composition of atmospheric aerosols, collected at a rural site in the Western Black Sea Coast of Turkey. A total of 3 54 daily aerosol samples were analyzed for 46 trace and major elements and ions. Sample preparation, quality control ...
Temporal variability of atmospheric trace element concentrations over the eastern Mediterranean Sea
GÜLLÜ, GÜLEN; Ölmez, İlhan; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2000-07-01)
Concentrations of elements and ions measured in aerosol samples collected between March 1992 and December 1993 were investigated to understand temporal variability of elemental concentrations. Collected samples were analyzed by atomic absorption spectrometry, instrumental neutron activation analysis, ion chromatography and colorimetry for approximately 40 elements and major ionic species. Concentrations of elements were found to vary greatly on time scales ranging from days to seasons. Short-term variations...
Investigation of the effect of orientation and heat treatment on the stress corrosion cracking susceptibility of 7050 aluminium alloy
Çevik, Gül; Doruk, Mustafa; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2004)
In the present work, the effect of variation in specimen orientation and heat treatment on the Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) susceptibility of 7050 aluminum alloy was investigated in 3,5% NaCl solution and under freely corroding conditions. For this purpose, Constant Extension Rate Tests (CERT) was performed on precracked Compact Tension (CT) specimens and the Direct Current Potential Drop technique was applied to measure the crack lengths. In addition to crack length versus time curves, the relationship ...
NANOSTRUCTURE OF SOOT COLLECTED FROM ETHANOL DROPLET FLAMES IN MICROGRAVITY
Park, Seul-Hyun; Choi, Mun Young; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
The nanostructure of soot particles collected from spherically symmetric ethanol droplet flames were analyzed using a high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). Nanostructure properties, including fringe length and curvature of carbon lamellae, were measured for soot particles collected in various inert environments. The sampling experiments were performed in the reduced gravity environments produced in the NASA 2.2 sec Droptower at the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Microgravity d...
Atmospheric trace element and major ion concentrations over the eastern Mediterranean Sea: Identification of anthropogenic source regions
GÜLLÜ, GÜLEN; DOĞAN, GÜRAY; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2005-11-01)
Concentrations of elements and ions measured in aerosol samples collected from March 1992 to the end of December 1993 were investigated to identify source regions affecting chemical composition of aerosols in the eastern Mediterranean atmosphere. Collected samples were analyzed for approximately 40 elements and ions using a combination of atomic absorption spectrometry, instrumental neutron activation analysis, ion chromatography and colorimetry. Statistical techniques, such as enrichment factors and a non-...
