Surface processes: obstacles in Aerial Archaeology, examples from turkey

Toprak, V
The purpose of this article is to draw attention to the importance of recognition of surface processes in aerial archaeological investigations with some examples from Turkey. Natural, geological processes often exhibit extreme forces on the surface and influence ancient sites in different ways. Remote sensing techniques can help to monitor these processes and their affects.

Applications of data envelopment analysıs and principal component analysis to evaluate efficiency of air force squadrons.
Özarslan, Tamer; Saatçioğlu, Tamer; Department of Industrial Engineering (2003)
Main purpose of this thesis is to show how the efficiency of Turkish Airforce F-16 squadrons can be evaluated based on some predefined criteria by using leading techniques in science. There are 10 squadrons in the analysis with three types of outputs and two types of input variables. Namely, these are The Operational Flight Sorties, The Secondary Flight Sorties and The Level of Flight Education as outputs, and Manning and Aircraft Hours as inputs. When input data is aggregated, Analytic Hierarchy Process (A...
Seismic stratigraphy of Late Quaternary deposits on the continental shelf of Antalya Bay, Northeastern Mediterranean
Tezcan, Devrim (2006-09-01)
The Late Quaternary sedimentation and structural features of the continental shelf of Antalya Bay (SW Turkey) have been investigated using a single channel high-resolution shallow profiling system. Two seismic units denoted as unit 1 and unit 2 bounded by two major unconformities (R-1 and R-2) have been identified. R-1 and R-2 are type-1 sequence boundaries that formed under sub-aerial conditions during the Late Quaternary sea level lowstands. An acoustic basement (AB) is recognized in the study region; it ...
Bio-climatic architecture in libya: case studies from three climatic regions
Elwefati, Nahla Adel; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Architecture (2007)
The aim of this study was to investigate the bio-climatic characteristics of traditional and contemporary residential architecture in three different climatic/geographical regions of Libya, which are represented by Tripoli in the “coastal region”; Gharyan in the “mountainous region”; and Ghadames in the “desert region”. It was undertaken to understand and evaluate the effects of building layout and orientation, wall thicknesses, ceiling height, construction materials, thermal mass and size of windows, on th...
The Comparison of Institutional Frameworks Regarding Risk Management for Conservation of Cultural Heritage by Focusing on UNESCO World Heritage Sites: The Cases of the UK, Japan and Turkey
Uluç, Aynur; Şenol Balaban, Meltem (2019-12-01)
The aim of this study is to investigate different institutional frameworks that deals with the management of UNESCO World Heritage Sites (hereafter WHS) under the threats of natural and technological hazards in other countries in comparison with Turkey. While doing this it is also aimed to figure out the factors that threat those sites. In this regard, first of all the international agenda regarding the conservation of cultural heritage in relation to risk management are discussed. Then, three different cou...
Challenges in use of geographical information systems (GIS) in a research for understanding conservation of cultural heritage in Bursa
Alp, Sermin Cakici; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman (2017-01-01)
Purpose -The purpose of this paper is to present a framework of introducing a proper method to document and to analyze conservation process of cultural heritage in Bursa, known as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Turkey and to discuss challenges in use of geographical information systems (GIS) for assessment of a complex data collected and analyzed during different phases of the historic researches.
