Spatial and temporal distribution of inorganic and organic pollutant concentrations at Northwestern Anatolia
Sarısaltık, Ufuk; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
Concentrations of inorganic pollutants including NO2, SO2, O3 and organic pollutants including benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, o-xylene and m&p-xylene, which are known as BTEX compounds were measured on a seasonal basis in 13 cities located in the Central and Northern parts of Anatolian Plateau. Cities included in measurements were Ankara, Bartın, Bolu, Çankırı, Düzce, Eskişehir, Karabük, Kastamonu, Kırıkkale, Kırşehir, Kütahya, Yozgat, and Zonguldak. Sampling was performed in four seasonal campaigns in eac...
Spatial probabilistic evaluation of sea bottom soil properties and its effect on foundation design
Oğuz, Emir Ahmet; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
The spatial correlation length (SCL), or the scale of fluctuation, is a parameter for describing the spatial variability of a soil property and is one of the important parameters used in random field theory. Studies reporting the SCL of soil properties of offshore/nearshore soils are rather limited in the literature. In this study, the vertical SCL is determined using site investigation data from two nearshore and one large offshore sites in Turkish waters. In nearshore sites, a total of 41 boreholes and St...
Spatial data analysis for monitoring and prediction of selected water quality parameters in reservoirs: Porsuk Dam reservoir case
Yenilmez, Firdes; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Environmental Engineering (2014)
In the design of a water quality monitoring network, selection of water quality sampling locations is crucial to adequately represent the water quality of the water body when high costs of analyses and field work are taken into account. In this study, a new approach was proposed to identify the representative water quality sampling locations in reservoirs and lakes using geostatistical tools for estimation of spatial distribution of selected water quality parameters. To do so, kernel density estimation (KDE...
Spatial variation of VOCs and inorganic pollutants in a university building

Indoor concentrations of 34 volatile organic compounds (VOCs), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and ozone (O-3) were measured at 32 sampling points in classes, offices and hallways of the Environmental Engineering Department (ENVE) in the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara. Outdoor samples were also collected around the department during the sampling campaigns. Two passive sampling campaigns, one in summer and the other one in winter, were conducted. Indoor concentrations of most ...
Spatial and temporal variability in the chemical properties of the oxic and suboxic layers of the Black Sea
Tuğrul, Süleyman; Murray, James W.; Friederich, Gernot E.; Salihoglu, Ilkay (Elsevier BV, 2014-07-01)
The Black Sea, a land-locked deep basin with sulfide bearing waters below 150-200 m, has been subject to anthropogenic pressures since the 1970s. Large inputs of nutrients (nitrate - N, phosphate - P, silicate - Si) with high N/P but low Si/N ratios and subsequent development of intensive eutrophication over the basin have changed vertical distributions and inventories of nutrients and redox-sensitive metals in the oxic, suboxic and anoxic layers. Chemical data sets obtained between 1988 and 2010, and older...
