Plants react to the environmental variables like heat, humidity, wind, light and even touch of a person or the presence of someone in the vicinity, and these changes are reflected to the bioelectric potential of the plant. So it is envisioned that using these changes in bioelectricity a plant may communicate with the world by synthesizing sounds. Within this study a plant interfaces with the world using, our Cry of Nature platform that converts these bioelectrical responses to sounds.


Appropriate passive cooling strategies for hot and humid climates : a case study in cyprus
Hançerli, Mustafa Yılmaz; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2008)
In this study, energy conservation potential of appropriate passive cooling and basic heat avoidance strategies were investigated for hot and humid climates. Within this framework, thermal behavior of a case study building that is situated in Cyprus was assessed by collecting temperature and relative humidity data from various rooms of the building during certain days in August. Then, by using feasible simulation strategies of the software tool Summer-Building, the effectiveness of passive cooling measures ...
Comparison of iscst3 and aermod air dispersion models: case study of cayirhan thermal power plant
Dölek, Emre; Atımtay, Aysel; Department of Environmental Engineering (2007)
In this study, emission inventory was prepared and pollutant dispersion studies were carried out for the area around Çayırhan Thermal Power Plant to determine the effects of the plant on the environment. Stack gas measurement results were used for the emissions from the power plant and emission factors were used for calculating the emissions from residential sources and coal stockpiles in the study region. Ground level concentrations of SO2, NOx and PM10 were estimated by using EPA approved dispersion model...
Spatial Modelling of Urban Mobility Induced Air Pollution: A Case Study of Istanbul
Şenay Boyacı, Revnak; Şenyel Kürkçüoğlu, Müzeyyen Anıl; Department of City and Regional Planning (2022-11-22)
Air pollution can be defined as the increase of pollutants in the atmosphere to the levels that are harmful to humans, other living organisms and the environment which occurs during production and consumption activities. The problem of air pollution is increasing all over the world as a result of various factors such as drought, topographic conditions, inversion and climatic characteristics, as well as reasons such as population growth in cities, increasing urbanization and industrialization. Similar to the...
Geographic patterns of elemental deposition in the Aegean region of Turkey indicated by the lichen, Xanthoria parietina (L.) Th. Fr.
Yenisoy-Karakas, S; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2004-08-15)
Lichen samples from different parts of the world have been known to accumulate elements to a greater degree than higher plants, if they are exposed to these elements from the atmosphere or from water and sediments. It has been hypothesized that lichens can be used to monitor air pollution around point and area emission sources. Local variation (variation in substrate, age and morphology of lichen samples) of element concentrations would not be large enough to affect the concentration patterns in large areas...
Effects of plant size on the growth of the submersed macrophyteVallisneria spinulosaSZYan at different light intensities: implications for lake restoration
Yuan, Guixiang; Fu, Hui; Zhang, Meihong; Lou, Qian; Dai, Taotao; Jeppesen, Erik (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-10-01)
The growth and reproduction of plants are highly size-dependent and markedly affected by light intensity.Vallisneria spinulosaS.Z.Yan is a common submersed macrophyte and is widely used in current lake restoration projects. The size of plants to be used to get optimal restoration results is not known, however, and may vary with water clarity. In this study, the effects of different plant sizes (large, medium and small, i.e. approximately 2.40 g, 1.01 g and 0.27 g per plant) on the growth and reproduction of...
