Investigation of non-point source pollution potential in the watershed of porsuk dam reservoir
Küçük, Elif; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Department of Environmental Engineering (2013)
The achievement of good water quality status depends not only on point source control, but also on minimizing the contribution of non-point sources on pollution. Although non-point source pollution includes numerous components, agriculture has been considered as the primary activity responsible from deterioration in the quality of water resources. In this thesis, a hypothetical assessment was conducted to assess the relative impacts of different agricultural practices on the Watershed of the Porsuk Dam Rese...
Investigation of methane production potential of industrial sludges mixed with domestic sludge during anaerobic digestion
Aksu Bahçeci, Hazal; Sanin, F. Dilek.; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
Anaerobic digestion has been established as a sludge stabilization and biogas production method for domestic sludge. However, anaerobic digestion has limited success in industrial sludge applications. In this thesis sludge from two different Organized Industrial Districts (OIDs) and textile industry are mixed with urban wastewater sludge with and without ultrasound pretreatment to investigate their energy production potential by using BMP tests. Sludges were digested alone (A for industrial, D for domestic ...
Investigation of gas seepages in Thessaloniki mud volcano in the Mediterranean Sea
MEREY, ŞÜKRÜ; Longinos, Sotirios Nik (2018-09-01)
Gas seepages are commonly observed in marine environment. Especially, gas seepages due to anthropogenic gas hydrate dissociation are big concerns recently. In the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, Thessaloniki mud volcano was detected. Gas hydrate stability conditions in this mud volcano is very fragile. For this reason, in this study, gas seepages were predicted by using HydrateResSim at different seafloor temperature increments varying from 1 to 5 degrees C and different sediment permeability values varying from...
Investigation of biogas production potential of three different sludges after thermal hydrolysis
Arı Akdemir, Ece.; Sanin, F. Dilek.; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
Biogas production through anaerobic digestion using biological sludge is one the sustainable approaches. Hydrolysis is the first and rate limiting step during anaerobic digestion. For enhancement of hydrolysis of sludge, it is feasible to investigate pre-treatment before anaerobic digestion process. In this research, biogas and methane production potentials of municipal wastewater treatment plants sludge, membrane bioreactor sludge and organized industrial district sludge were investigated using small scale...
Investigation of Helium Isotope Vari ations of Alkaline Volcanic Rocks in Kutahya Region
Cesur, Duru; Mutlu, Halim; Aldanmaz, Ercan; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan; Stuart, Fın; Sarıız, Kadır (2016-04-17)
The noble gases, in particular helium isotopes, provide valuable information on the mantle source of recentbasaltic volcanism, especially when linked to trace elements and radiogenic isotopes. Although the alkalinevolcanics in the Kütahya region have been studied in detail by several works by means of trace element variations,radiogenic dating and isotope systematics, noble gas isotope compositions that could significantly contribute todynamics of volcanism have not been investigated yet. In this study which...
