Dynamic harmonic regression modeling for monthly mean sea levels at tide gauges within the Arabian Gulf

Ayhan, Mehmet Emin
Time series with strong periodicity and non-stationary character in terms ofmagnitude and frequency which are changing over measurement period can be decomposed into time-varying trend, seasonal and cyclical components by dynamic harmonic regression (DHR) modeling in the state-space framework. The time-variable parameters of the components are first associated with a generalized random walk process, and then, state parameters are estimated by the recursive Kalman filtering and fixed interval smoothing algorithms. Missed points are filled by the DHR interpolation, and change points are detected by both visual inspection and the Pettitt test. Sea level series at tide gauges, which consist of accelerated trend and strong periodicity, are therefore suitable for DHR modeling. Time-varying trend, seasonal and cyclical components are extracted by the DHR modeling from the monthly mean sea level series longer than 15 years at seven stations within the Arabian Gulf. The DHR model accounts for 90-96% of variation of the monthly series, while the seasonal and cyclical components account for 64-85% and 2-7%, respectively. Average relative sea level rate (RSLR) and absolute sea level rate (ASLR) over the Arabian Gulf are found 1.67 +/- 0.05 mm/year and 1.93 +/- 0.05 mm/year, respectively.


Regional vertical total electron content (VTEC) modeling together with satellite and receiver differential code biases (DCBs) using semi-parametric multivariate adaptive regression B-splines (SP-BMARS)
Durmaz, Murat; Karslıoğlu, Mahmut Onur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-04-01)
There are various global and regional methods that have been proposed for the modeling of ionospheric vertical total electron content (VTEC). Global distribution of VTEC is usually modeled by spherical harmonic expansions, while tensor products of compactly supported univariate B-splines can be used for regional modeling. In these empirical parametric models, the coefficients of the basis functions as well as differential code biases (DCBs) of satellites and receivers can be treated as unknown parameters wh...
Time domain Gauss-Newton seismic waveform inversion in elastic media
Sheen, Dong-Hoon; Tuncay, Kağan; Baag, Chang-Eob; Ortoleva, Peter J. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2006-12-01)
We present a seismic waveform inversion methodology based on the Gauss-Newton method from pre-stack seismic data. The inversion employs a staggered-grid finite difference solution of the 2-D elastic wave equation in the time domain, allowing accurate simulation of all possible waves in elastic media. The partial derivatives for the Gauss-Newton method are obtained from the differential equation of the wave equation in terms of model parameters. The resulting wave equation and virtual sources from the recipr...
Relationships between Felt Intensity and Recorded Ground-Motion Parameters for Turkey
Bilal, Mustafa; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül (Seismological Society of America (SSA), 2014-02-01)
In this paper, empirical relationships between modified Mercalli intensity (MMI) and recorded peak ground-motion parameters are developed for Turkey. Strong ground motion data from moderate-to-large earthquakes are employed along with the corresponding MMI information inferred from isoseismal maps and earthquake damage reports. Linear least-squares regression technique is used to derive the following simple relationships between MMI and peak ground acceleration (PGA), peak ground velocity (PGV), and pseudos...
Full waveform inversion for seismic velocity and anelastic losses in heterogeneous structures
Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Bielak, Jacobo; Ghattas, Omar (Seismological Society of America (SSA), 2007-12-01)
We present a least-squares optimization method for solving the nonlinear full waveform inverse problem of determining the crustal velocity and intrinsic attenuation properties of sedimentary valleys in earthquake-prone regions. Given a known earthquake source and a set of seismograms generated by the source, the inverse problem is to reconstruct the anelastic properties of a heterogeneous medium with possibly discontinuous wave velocities. The inverse problem is formulated as a constrained optimization prob...
On Baseline Corrections and Uncertainty in Response Spectra for Baseline Variations Commonly Encountered in Digital Accelerograph Records
Akkar, Dede Sinan; Boore, David M. (Seismological Society of America (SSA), 2009-06-01)
Most digital accelerograph recordings are plagued by long-period drifts, best seen in the velocity and displacement time series obtained from integration of the acceleration time series. These drifts often result in velocity values that are nonzero near the end of the record. This is clearly unphysical and can lead to inaccurate estimates of peak ground displacement and long-period spectral response. The source of the long-period noise seems to be variations in the acceleration baseline in many cases. These...
