The reservoir of Keban Dam is a very deep and large water body of temperate zone exhibiting special characteristics with respect to its limnological properties. One of the major characteristics is the development and seasonal persistence of metalimnetic oxygen minima. This characteristic has been observed for three consecutive years. Spatial heterogeneity with respect to several parameters was another distinct property that has been clearly identified. The long term study has identified the existence of an order in the behavior. The modeling for strategy development seems to be a very useful tool to assess the major system variables to be controlled and to achieve comparative evaluation of possible management practices.


Evaluation of eutrophication control strategies for the Keban Dam reservoir
Soyupak, S; Mukhallalati, L; Yemisen, D; Bayar, A; Yurteri, C (1997-04-15)
The reservoir of the Keban Dam in eastern Anatolia is a very deep and large water body subject to significant seasonal water level fluctuations within a given hydrological year. At the present time, different sections of the reservoir have different trophic status and the upper portion of the reservoir, in particular, is eutrophic. In this regard, there is a need for the assessment of alternative strategies to be implemented for phosphorus and thus eutrophication control in this segment of the reservoir. In...
The use of fractal geostatistics and artificial neural networks for carbonate reservoir characterization
Yeten, B; Gumrah, F (2000-11-01)
In this study, a carbonate oil reservoir located in the southeast part of Turkey was characterized by the use of kriging and the fractal geometry. The three-dimensional porosity and permeability distributions were generated by both aforementioned methods by using the wireline porosity logs and core plug permeability measurements taken from six wells of the field. Since classical regression (lognormal or polynomial) and geostatistical techniques (cross variograms) fail to estimate permeability from wireline ...
The impact of climate variability on the physical properties of the Black Sea for the period 1971 – 2001
Korkmaz, Muhteşem Akif; Salihoğlu, Barış; Cannaby, Heather Anne; Department of Physical Oceanography (2011)
Deep ventilation of the Black Sea is inhibited by a sharp salinity gradient within the upper water column, resulting in a shallow anoxic interface at around 100 – 200 m depth. Understanding biological and chemical processes within the boundary region between oxic and anoxic waters is fundamental to comprehend the biogeochemical response of the Black Sea to climate forcing. The structure and depth of the chemocline is largely determined by the physical processes which transport surface waters to depth. Here ...
A reaction-transport-mechanical approach to modeling the interrelationships among gas generation, overpressuring, and fracturing: Implications for the Upper Cretaceous natural gas reservoirs of the Piceance basin, Colorado
Payne, DF; Tuncay, Kağan; Park, A; Comer, JB; Ortoleva, P (2000-04-01)
Predicting reservoir characteristics in tight-gas sandstone reservoirs, such as those of the Upper Cretaceous units of the Piceance basin, is difficult due to the interactions of multiple processes acting on sediments during basin development. To better understand the dynamics of these systems, a forward numerical model, which accounts for compaction, fracturing, hydrocarbon generation, and multiphase flow (BasinRTM) is used in a one-dimensional simulation of the U.S. Department of Energy's Multiwell Experi...
Impact of alternating wet and dry periods on long-term seasonal phosphorus and nitrogen budgets of two shallow Mediterranean lakes

The water balance, with large seasonal and annual water level fluctuations, has a critical influence on the nitrogen and phosphorus dynamics of shallow lakes in the semi-arid climate zone. We constructed seasonal water and nutrient budgets for two connected shallow lakes, Lakes Mogan and Eymir, located in Central Anatolia, Turkey. The study period covered 20 years with alternations between dry and wet years as well as restoration efforts including sewage effluent diversion and biomanipulations in Lake Eymir...
