Türkiye’de İklim Değişikliğinin Buğday Verimi Üzerine Etkileri: Bir Heterojen Panel Çalışması

Eruygur, Hakkı Ozan
Özokcu, Selin
In this study, the impacts of climate related variables such as temperature, maximum temperature, precipitation, solar radiation on wheat yield are estimated by using a regional panel data (NUTS2) for Turkey. The estimated coefficients are used to simulate the impacts of climate change on wheat yield in Turkey until 2100. The humidty coefficient (nks) of Aydeniz climate classification, July Maximum Temperature and August Maximum Temperature are also used in the estimations. The regional effects (for seven regions of Turkey) are estimated separately for each decade. Apart from point estimation, the upper and lower bounds of the estimations are also provided. The "average scenario" points out a decline of about 8% in the wheat yields. In the "worst scenario" the decline enlarges to about 23%. However, the "best scenario" based on the statistically significant lower bound estimation values shows only a 1% of decline in the wheat yields of Turkey. This large interval can be explained by the high varance of the estimations and long forecasting period until 2100. In the study, to take into account the non-stationarity of variables and cross-sectional dependence of panel data, the heterogenus panel data estimation method of AMG (Augmented Mean Group Estimator) is preferred. The AMG estimator of Eberhardt is robust to the cross-sectional dependence of panel series. We argue that this feature makes AMG a good estimator for climate change estimations based on panel data. The residuals of Fixed Effect, Random Effect, FGLS and PCSE estimators are found to be non-stationary pointing unhealthy estimations results.

Evaluation of the consistency of station-based soil moisture measurements with hydrological model and remote sensing observations over Turkey
Bulut, Burak; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
Soil moisture is a critical parameter for many subjects like climate, drought, water and energy balance, weather prediction; yet the number of studies involving soil moisture has been limited in Turkey. Soil moisture parameter can be obtained using several different methods. Among the values obtained via different methods, station-based observations have the greatest potential to provide the most accurate soil moisture information, even though station based observations have the representativeness errors ov...
Analyses of atmospheric and marine observations along the Turkish coast
Tutsak, Ersin; Özsoy, Emin; Department of Physical Oceanography (2012)
Time series and spectral analyses are applied to meteorological data (wind velocity, air temperature, barometric pressure) and sea level measurements from a total of 13 monitoring stations along the Turkish Coast. Analyses of four-year time series identify main time scales of transport and motion while establishing seasonal characteristics, i.e. distinguishing, for instance, between winter storms and summer sea-breeze system. Marine flow data acquired by acoustic doppler current pro filers (ADCP) is also a...
Sensitivity and sea surface temperature analyses of WRF model for predicting heavy rainfall events observed in Eastern Black Sea and Mediterranean regions of Turkey
Pilatin, Heves; Yücel, İsmail; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Department of Earth System Science (2020-8)
With this thesis it is aimed to enhance the prediction accuracy of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model on the extreme precipitation events of Mediterranean and Eastern Black Sea regions of Turkey. While the first part of sensitivity analysis was conducted for the physical parameters (microphysics, cumulus and PBL) and the initial boundary conditions, the second part has only focused on the impact of sea surface temperature (SST). After choosing 4 microphysics, 3 cumulus, 2 PBL and 2 input meteo...
Decadal variability analysis of extreme precipitation in Turkey and its relationship with teleconnection patterns
Düzenli, Eren; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul; Willems, Patrick; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
Natural disasters as droughts and floods originate as a consequence of excessive decrease or increase in precipitation amount and/or frequency, while the variability in the climate significantly impacts the expected change in precipitation. Given that many global ocean-atmosphere teleconnection patterns (AO, WeMO, NAO, SOI, etc.) are tightly related with the climate variability and show decadal/multi-decadal oscillations, it is important to analyze precipitation variability at the decadal time-scale to unde...
Assessment of changes in climate indices of the mediterranean climate region of Turkey
Çetinkaya , İzem; Yücel, İsmail; Department of Civil Engineering (2020-10-28)
As a consequence of climate change, frequency and intensity changes in extreme weather events have occurred. One of the most vulnerable regions of the world that is affected by the climate change is the Mediterranean region. Turkey as a Mediterranean country has a great importance to investigate the changes in climate behavior. 57 stations from Mediterranean climate region of Turkey have been selected as the study area for this thesis. This study aims to assess the climate indices that carry the valua...
