Geographic information systems (GIS) for the determination of inundation maps of Lake Mogan, Turkey

Merzi, N
Aktas, MT
The use of geographic information systems (GIS) allows for a very efficient analysis of spatial hydrologic data for water resources projects especially for water control studies. rn this respect, flood hydrographs for Mogan basin, Turkey for different durations and return periods are determined by using Soil Conservation Service (SCS) method. The basic parameter of the SCS method, curve number (CN), is evaluated by using GIS employing digital land use and hydrologic soil group data derived from analog maps. A Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of Mogan basin is constructed by making use of topographic maps with a scale of 1:25, 000. Flood hydrographs for these three productive subbasins of lake Mogan are attached and superimposed to obtain the total flood hydrographs. Total flood hydrographs entering into Lake Mogan are routed by Puls Method to determine the outflow hydrographs fi;om the lake; then, associated lake levels are computed. Furthermore, inundation maps of Lake Mogan are obtained; these results are presented by GIS techniques.


Optimal operation of water distribution pumps considering water quality
Altan Sakarya, Ayşe Burcu (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2000-07-01)
A new methodology has been developed for determining the optimal operation of water distribution system pumps with water quality considerations. The methodology is based upon describing the operation as a discrete time optimal scheduling problem that can be used to determine the optimal operation schedules of the pumps in distribution systems. The solution methodology is based upon a mathematical programming approach resulting in a large-scale nonlinear programming problem that cannot be solved using existi...
Diverging Water Management Paradigms between Turkey and the European Union
Kibaroğlu, Ayşegül; SÜMER, VAKUR (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
Since the early 1990s, the integrated water resources management (IWRM) approach has been championed and adopted by some of the industrialized states. The present paper analyzes the IWRM approach through an historical narrative while emphasizing divergences in the priorities and requirements of the developing and developed countries. Then, the paper examines water resources management in Turkey taking into consideration the political and economic structure of the country. Turkey, being the accession country...
Impacts of physical and chemical heterogeneities on aquifer remediation design
Aksoy, Ayşegül (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2004-07-01)
The impacts of physical and chemical aquifer heterogeneities on optimal remediation design, costs, and time to compliance are investigated by linking a genetic algorithm with a contaminant transport simulation model. Physical and chemical aquifer heterogeneities were grouped into three levels as follows: (1) hydraulic conductivity (K) heterogeneity only; (2) combined heterogeneity of K and the distribution coefficient (Kd); and (3) combined heterogeneity of K, Kd, and the mass transfer rate (α). Various deg...
Alternative solutions for long missing streamflow data for sustainable water resources management
Mesta, Buket; Akgün, Ömer Burak; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin (Informa UK Limited, 2020-08-01)
Sustainable water resources management requires long time series of streamflow data. In this study, a Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy rule-based (FRB) model is developed to reconstruct long periods of missing daily streamflow data which is a common problem in developing countries. The FRB model uses observations of neighbouring stream gauges, and thus is advantageous regarding data and time requirement compared to physical models. With the proper set of inputs, the FRB model provides better estimates than the hydrologi...
Development of GIS-based national hydrography dataset, sub-basin boundaries, and water quality/quantity data analysis system for Turkey
Girgin, Serkan; Usul, Nurünnisa; Akyürek, Zuhal; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2003)
Computerized data visualization and analysis tools, especially Geographic Information Systems (GIS), constitute an important part of today̕s water resources development and management studies. In order to obtain satisfactory results from such tools, accurate and comprehensive hydrography datasets are needed that include both spatial and hydrologic information on surface water resources and watersheds. If present, such datasets may support many applications, such as hydrologic and environmental modeling, imp...
