A structurally dynamic model developed [Ecol. Model. (in press)] for Lake Mogan was applied to set up prognosis for the response of the lake to the increased phosphorus input. It was found that a shift to a turbid water state takes place at phosphorus concentration between 0.16 and 0.25 mg TP l(-1) resulting in a significant decrease in the submerged plants. Consequently, above the threshold P level, the submerged plants abruptly disappeared, while phytoplankton became dominant. The model simulated the recovery of the lake through reducing the increased phosphorus concentration in the inflow to the original level. Submerged plants redeveloped at a low phosphorus concentration about (0.1 mg TP l(-1)). However, the recovery took very long time because the lake first performed long resilience probably owing to the accumulation of phosphorus in the sediment. The shifts between the clearwater and turbid water states followed a hysteresis for the structurally dynamic model based on the maximum exergy storage hypothesis [Ecol. Model. 7 (1979) 169]. The results presented are completely in accordance with how shallow lakes respond to the changing phosphorus levels with a hysteresis in the range 0.10-0.25 mg TP l(-1) [Ecology of Shallow Lakes, Chapman & Hall, London, 1997; Nature 413 (2001) 591]. Therefore, the model result may be considered a support for the maximum exergy storage hypothesis.


Catastrophic-like shifts in shallow Turkish lakes: a modeling approach
Tan, CO; Beklioğlu, Meryem (Elsevier BV, 2005-05-10)
A generalized logistic model (GLM) was developed to determine occurrence of submerged macrophytes in shallow Lake Eymir. and the model was tested independently on the upstream shallow Lake Mogan using the data collected fortnightly from both lakes during 1997-2002. The independent variables included concentrations of chlorophyll-a (chl-a), suspended solids (SS) and total phosphorus (TP), Secchi disc transparency and z-scores of water levels. The dependent variable was the binary index of submerged plant occ...
A structurally dynamic modelling - Lake Mogan, Turkey as a case study
Zhang, JJ; Jorgensen, SE; Tan, CO; Beklioğlu, Meryem (Elsevier BV, 2003-06-15)
A structurally dynamic model based on phosphorus nutrient limitation has been developed for Lake Mogan located nearby Ankara, Turkey. This eutrophication model, which includes very dense submerged plants, was calibrated using a standard procedure described by Jorgensen and Bendoriccho [Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling, 3rd ed. Elsevier, Amsterdam, 20 pp.]. Furthermore, exergy was applied as a goal function to consider the dynamic adaptation and the seasonality of plankton species (e.g. size shifts). Thi...
Modeling complex nonlinear responses of shallow lakes to fish and hydrology using artificial neural networks
Tan, Can Ozan; Beklioğlu, Meryem (Elsevier BV, 2006-07-10)
Mathematical abstractions may be useful in providing insight that is otherwise very difficult to obtain due to complex interactions in the ecosystems. The difficulty associated with the nonlinearity and complexity of ecological processes and interactions can be avoided with artificial neural networks (ANN) and generalized logistic models (GLMs) which are practically ANNs without hidden layer. An ANN and a GLM were developed to determine the probability of submerged plant occurrence in five shallow Anatolian...

In this paper a context based super-resolution (SR) image reconstruction method is proposed. The proposed maximum a-posteriori (MAP) based estimator identifies local gradients and textures for selecting the optimal SR method for the region of interest. Texture segmentation and gradient map estimation are done prior to the reconstruction stage. Gradient direction is used for optimal noise reduction along the edges for non-textured regions. On the other hand, regularization term is cancelled for textured regi...
Probabilistic assessment of liquefaction-induced lateral ground deformations
Al Bawwab, Wa'el Mohammad Kh; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
A new reliability-based probabilistic model is developed for the estimation of liquefaction-induced lateral ground spreading, taking into consideration the uncertainties within the model functional form and the descriptive variables as well. The new model is also introduced as performance-based probabilistic engineering tool.
