Analysis of the 2007 and 2013 Droughts in Turkey by NOAH Hydrological Model

2016-10-01
Analysis of drought, which is classified as a natural disaster, is globally considering the damage it gives. As a result detection of its characteristics is essential for understanding and reducing the effects of this natural disaster and for imminent prediction. In this study, soil moisture estimates obtained from NOAH hydrological model and normalized difference vegetation index obtained from MODIS observations are used to analysis the recent droughts in Turkey. With the utilization of these parameters that are commonly used in drought studies, years 2000-2014 have been examined and a detailed analysis of the drought particularly in the years 2007, 2013 has been carried out.

Analysis of Agricultural Drought Using NOAH Root Zone Soil Moisture Estimates and MODIS Based NDVI Values over Turkey
Bulut, Burak; Afshar, Mehdi; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (null; 2017-04-28)
Analysis of drought is globally classified as a natural disaster due to the damage it causes. As a result detection of its characteristics is essential for understanding and reducing the adverse effects of this natural disaster and improving its prediction. In this study, root zone soil moisture (SM) estimates obtained from NOAH hydrological model and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) obtained from MODIS observations are used to analyze the recent agricultural droughts in Turkey that are diagnos...
Analysis of drought events in North Cyprus
Khan, Sana; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2019-9)
Drought is a temporary climatic condition which arises due to lack of precipitation. It has become an important natural phenomenon for North Cyprus due to its semi-arid climate and with vulnerabilities culminating as a result of climate change there is a dire need to keep a good track of such extreme climate events for sustainable water resource management. The island is facing serious water shortages, and for Mediterranean region climate change impacts on water resources has become a pressing issue, hence,...
Evaluation of Relations among Drought Indices and Remotely Sensed Soil: Moisture Datasets over Turkey
Bulut, Burak; Afshar, Mehdi; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (null; 2018-04-08)
Drought is globally classified as a natural disaster due to the damage it causes. As a result, detection of its characteristics is essential for understanding and reducing the adverse effects of this natural disaster and improving its prediction. Spatial distribution and temporal changes of soil moisture is one of the important components in climatic, ecological and natural hazards at global, regional and local levels scales. In this study, different drought indices (i.e. SPI, SPEI, PDSI) and remotely sense...
Extreme precipitation and drought monitoring in northeastern China using general circulation models and pan evaporation-based drought indices

The evaluation of precipitation extremes and the usage of appropriate drought indices are very important for assessment of natural disasters (i.e. floods and drought). For this purpose, we calculated values of indices that reflect precipitation extremes and 3 drought indices, i.e. the composite index (CI), standardized precipitation evapotranspiration index (SPEI), and reconnaissance drought index (RDI), with reformulation of pan evaporation and Penman-Monteith equations (denoted as CI-Pan, RDI-Pan, RDI-PM,...
Assessment of different rainfall products in flood simulations
Özkaya, Arzu; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
Floods happening due to heavy rainfall are one of the most widespread natural hazards. To predict such events, accurate rainfall products and well calibrated hydrologic models are essential especially in urban settlements for life savings. With the objective of assessing the rain detection potential of rainfall data products, several hourly rainfall datasets are used as forcing inputs in two hydrologic models. Physic based distributed model, WRF-Hydro, and conceptual based lumped model, HEC HMS, are used to...
