The Menemen-Aliaga-Foca region on the northwestern Aegean coast of Turkey near Izmir, is under the influence of air emissions originating from various industrial establishments. In this article, the long-term acidification impacts of these industrial emissions on the agricultural and forest soils of the region were studied by using qualitative and quantitative soil acidification assessment approaches. The relevant characteristics of the regional soils were determined experimentally and the number of years required to reach certain critical soil pH levels were estimated. Predictions were also made regarding the improvements expected in the future when the existing industries comply with the emission standards stipulated by the currently effective legislation.

Estimation of upcoming problems in Alaşehir geothermal field using a numerical reservoir model
Aydin, Hakki; Akın, Serhat (2021-04-01)
Alaehir geothermal area located in Alaehir Graben, West Anatolia, is the latest target for geothermal field development in Turkey. Seven different operators are developing the power capacity in this geothermal field on a strictly competitive and largely confidential basis without the significant exchange of resource information among them. Currently, eleven binary and combined flash-binary geothermal power plants with widely changing power generation efficiency between plants produce from the same reservoir...
Thermal Modeling and Verification of PV Module Temperature and Energy Yield Using Outdoor Measurements for Ankara, Turkey
Tuncel, Bilge; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; ÖZDEN, TALAT; Balog, Robert S (2018-11-14)
Ankara is in the Central Anatolia region of Turkey where the climate is dry-continental with an annual solar insolation of around 1750 kWh/m(2). In the transition to renewable energy, detailed analyses are required to ensure effective and economic utilization of the available solar resource. An essential part of these analyses is to calculate expected energy yield. For photovoltaic (PV) systems, this includes the effect of temperature on the PV efficiency, which determines the power yield of the PV modules....
Estimation of demography and seasonal habitat use patterns of anatolian mouflon (ovis gmelinii anatolica) in Konya Bozdag protection area using distance sampling
Özdirek, Lütfiye; Kence, Aykut; Department of Biology (2009)
The Anatolian mouflon (Ovis gmelinii anatolica) is an endemic ungulate subspecies and of IUCN Vulnerable status that inhabits Konya-Bozdag region located in Central Anatolia. In this thesis, the demography and habitat use of the only natural population of Anatolian mouflon at Konya-Bozdag Provice is studied. Throughout the study, distance sampling techniques, specifically line transect sampling, are used to estimate density, size and growth rate of this population. Sex, age and count data are used to estima...
Chemical composition of precipitation near an industrial area at Izmir Turkey

Wet and dry deposition samples were collected near an industrial area on the Aegean coast of Turkey. Concentrations of major ions (Cl-, SO4(2-), NO3-, H+, Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+, and NH4+) were determined. The pH of the precipitation, calculated from the volume weighted H+ concentration, was found to be 5.6, indicating extensive neutralization of the acidity in the rain. Neutralization was found to be a local process. The main base responsible for the neutralization of acidity was NH3 from fertilizer used in t...
Evaluation of Groundwater Storage changes at Konya Closed Basin Turkey using GRACE based and in situ measurements
Yılmaz, Koray Kamil; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (null; 2016-04-17)
The Konya Closed Basin (KCB) located in Central Anatolia, Turkey, is the primary grain producer in Turkey. The lack of sufficient surface water resources and recently changing crop patterns have led to over-exploitation of groundwater resources and resulted in significant drop in groundwater levels. For this reason monitoring of the groundwater storage change in this region is critical to understand the potential of the current water resources and to devise effective water management strategies to avoid fur...
