Water quality trend analysis in Eymir Lake, Ankara

Aksoy, Ayşegül
In this study, trends in selected water quality parameters in Eymir Lake over a period of 10 years are analyzed using the Mann-Kendall test. Analyzed water quality parameters are dissolved oxygen (DO), total phosphorus (TP), total suspended solids (TSS), and secchi depth (SD). In addition, trends in the yearly averages of precipitation, lake volume, and ambient temperature are examined. According to Mann-Kendall test results, precipitation, volume and ambient temperature values exhibit decreasing trends in 1998-2008. DO and TSS exhibit increasing trends while TP and SD have decreasing trends in Eymir lake. The change in the volume of the lake has a significant impact on the trends of DO, TSS, and SD. These results indicate that, besides eutrophic conditions, water balance and drought conditions significantly impact the water quality of Eymir Lake.


Spatial data analysis for monitoring and prediction of selected water quality parameters in reservoirs: Porsuk Dam reservoir case
Yenilmez, Firdes; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Environmental Engineering (2014)
In the design of a water quality monitoring network, selection of water quality sampling locations is crucial to adequately represent the water quality of the water body when high costs of analyses and field work are taken into account. In this study, a new approach was proposed to identify the representative water quality sampling locations in reservoirs and lakes using geostatistical tools for estimation of spatial distribution of selected water quality parameters. To do so, kernel density estimation (KDE...
Groundwater recharge estimation from ephemeral streams. Case study: Wadi Tabalah, Saudi Arabia
Sorman, AU; Abdulrazzak, MJ; MorelSeytoux, HJ (Wiley, 1997-10-15)
Estimation of groundwater recharge to an unconfined aquifer is studied using analytical and numerical techniques and results are compared with field observations. There is an acute need for such estimation in water balance studies in arid climates, and the case study in this paper is for such a region. The wetting front movement in the unsaturated zone depends on antecedent soil moisture, the ponded water depth and its duration, and on the position of the water table and the hydraulic properties of the unsa...
Trend Analyses of Meteorological Variables and Lake Levels for Two Shallow Lakes in Central Turkey
YAĞBASAN, ÖZLEM; Demir, Vandettin; Yazıcıgil, Hasan (2020-02-01)
Trend analyses of meteorological variables play an important role in assessing the long-term changes in water levels for sustainable management of shallow lakes that are extremely vulnerable to climatic variations. Lake Mogan and Lake Eymir are shallow lakes offering aesthetic, recreational, and ecological resources. Trend analyses of monthly water levels and meteorological variables affecting lake levels were done by the Mann-Kendall (MK), Modified Mann-Kendall (MMK), Sen Trend (ST), and Linear trend (LT) ...
Fluid migration and rheological properties of different origin G-class cements in oil well drilling applications
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2018-01-01)
In the first part of this study the effect of free water on fluid migration potential is tested for different cement slurries using standard API G-class quality tests. Static gel strength analyser is also used to measure the static gel strength of cement slurries. Three different class G type cement samples were tested according to their free fluid values which are 2.5%, 5%, 3.12% respectively, and it is found that A-type cement, with lowest free fluid content, has the lowest potential for fluid migration. ...
Geostatistical analysis of bathing water quality in Turkey
Doğan, Nazlı Barçın; Yılmazel Tokel, Yasemin Dilşad; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
In this study geostatistical methods were applied to critically analyze historical bathing water quality (BWQ) data available for Turkish coastal areas. The specific objective of this study is the determination of the critical bathing sites of Turkey. In order to determine the critical bathing sites, a geostatistical method called indicator kriging is used via ArcGIS. Indicator kriging was applied using three microbial BWQ parameters, namely total coliforms (TC), fecal coliforms (FC) and fecal streptococci ...
