The possible effect of the IMF By and Bz components on the high latitude COST 251 area

Tulunay, Yurdanur
Kaya, A
Kaymaz, Z
The possible effects of the orientation of the IMF on the ionosphere has been studied by Tulunay (1995) using foF2 data from 15 ionospheric stations in Europe over the COST 238 area. The results showed that a good amount of the day to day variability of the mid-latitude ionospheric F region could be related to changes in orientation of the southward IMF Bz. This variability is quantified as the maximum change of delta foF2. This paper investigates the effects of By distribution on the ionospheric critical frequencies. (C) 1997 COSPAR.

Conditional Copula-Based Spatial-Temporal Drought Characteristics Analysis-A Case Study over Turkey
Afshar, Mahdı Hesamı ; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (2016-10-01)
In this study, commonly used copula functions belonging to Archimedean and Elliptical families are fitted to the univariate cumulative distribution functions (CDF) of the drought characteristics duration (LD), average severity (S), and average areal extent (A) of droughts obtained using standardized precipitation index (SPI) between 1960 and 2013 over Ankara, Turkey. Probabilistic modeling of drought characteristics with seven different fitted copula functions and their comparisons with independently estima...
Risk-based reservoir operation under drought conditions
Türkeri, Mustafa Kemal; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
This study introduces a practical drought risk assessment methodology for reservoirs and hydraulic structures, which can be used in basin drought risk management. Reservoir operation study is used as a main tool in the risk assessment methodology. The methodology developed in this study contains a probabilistic deficiency analysis approach for reservoir inflows. Different scenarios are developed which include hydrological deficiencies for various return periods. Developed scenarios are also modified for cli...
Measuring the efficiency of the turkish electric distribution sector using stochastic frontier analysis
Çelen, Aydın; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2011)
This study analyzes the technical efficiencies of Turkish electricity distribution companies (21 in total) throughout 2002 and 2009. For this aim, we used six different model specifications, all of which are generated from two different Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) models (Battese ve Coelli (1992&1995)). At the end of the estimations of the models, it has been seen that the signs and significance levels of the coefficient estimations are very consistent and satisfactory in all models. We also observed...
The Effects of Implementing Different Ground-motionLogic-tree Frameworks on Seismic Risk Assessment
Ay, Bekir Özer (null; 2018-06-21)
This study investigates the link between probabilistic seismic hazard assessment and corresponding loss estimations by using different ground-motion logic-tree frameworks from reliable large scale seismic hazard projects as well as the logic-tree framework established in this study. The predictive models selected for these logic trees are expected to represent the center, body and range of ground-motion intensity measure estimates. Regarding with the hazard component of risk assessment, the ground motion in...
The performance of the CMS muon detector in proton-proton collisions at root s=7 TeV at the LHC
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (IOP Publishing, 2013-11-01)
The performance of all subsystems of the CMS muon detector has been studied by using a sample of proton-proton collision data at root s = 7TeV collected at the LHC in 2010 that corresponds to an integrated luminosity of approximately 40 pb(-1). The measured distributions of the major operational parameters of the drift tube (DT), cathode strip chamber (CSC), and resistive plate chamber (RPC) systems met the design specifications. The spatial resolution per chamber was 80-120 mu m in the DTs, 40-150 mu m in ...
