In this study, coastal erosion which is one of the major problems that coastal engineers face in coastal regions is discussed with a case study. A coastal erosion problem that is observed at Perissia beach, located in Side, Antalya has been investigated to find out the best solution for the problem. CSI (acronym for Coastline-Structure Interaction) numerical model which is developed in Ocean Engineering Research Center of Civil Engineering Department in Middle East Technical University is applied to the case study area for different alternative solutions. In this paper, fundamentals and inputs of the developed numerical model, alternative solutions with simulation results have been discussed in detail in view of effectiveness.

Catch per Unit Effort and Mortality Rates of Two Sparid Species, Pagellus acarne and Pagellus erythrinus from Bottom Trawl Fishery in Izmir Bay, Aegean Sea
Gurbet, Rasit; AKYOL, OKAN; Yalcin, Esin (2012-01-01)
This study was carried out by using experimental trawl surveys in Izmir bay (Aegean sea) with seasonal basis between 2007 and 2009. A total of 707 specimens of P. acarne sampled were ranged from 7 cm (7.5 g) to 19.8 cm (137.5 g) with average 12.4 +/- 0.06 cm FL (35.2 +/- 0.57 g) while a total of 11 27 P. erythrinus specimens were also ranged from 4.6 cm (1.8 g) to 22.3 cm (247.8 g) with average 13.1 +/- 0.09 cm FL (50.8 +/- 1.02 g). The maximal CPUE was found in Autumn (0.53 +/- 0.14 kg h(-1)) for P. acarne...
Coastal vulnerability assessment to sea level rise integrated with analytical hierarchy process
Özyurt, Gülizar; Ergin, Ayşen; Baykal, Cüneyt (2010-12-01)
This paper discusses a parameter based coastal vulnerability assessment model to sea level rise. The model integrates physical characteristics and human activities with expert perception through an application of analytical hierarchy process (AHP). The results of AHP enables users to assign weights to parameters of the model which determine vulnerability of a coastal area to the impacts of sea level rise such as coastal erosion, inundation, flooding due to storm surges, saltwater intrusion to groundwater an...
Engineering geological and geotechnical site characterization and determination of the seismic hazards of Upper Pliocene and Quaternary deposits situated towars the west of Ankara
Koçkar, Mustafa Kerem; Akgün, Haluk; Department of Geological Engineering (2006)
The purpose of this study is to assess the engineering geological and geotechnical characteristics and to perform seismic hazard studies of the Upper Pliocene and Quaternary deposits located towards the west of Ankara. Based on a general engineering geological and seismic characterization of the site, site classification systems are assigned for seismic hazard assessment studies. The objective of the research is to determine the regional and local seismic soil conditions, predominant periods and ground ampl...
Ground-motion characterization for the probabilistic seismic hazard assessment in Turkey
AKKAR, DEDE SİNAN; Kale, Ozkan; Yakut, Ahmet; Ceken, Ulubey (2018-08-01)
This study describes the methodology implemented to establish the ground-motion logic-tree for national probabilistic seismic hazard map of Turkey for shallow active crustal regions. The presented procedure provides quantitative information to guide the hazard experts while establishing the logic tree to capture the epistemic uncertainty in ground-motion characterization. It uses non-data-driven and data-driven testing methods to identify and rank candidate ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs) under a...
Trend Analyses of Meteorological Variables and Lake Levels for Two Shallow Lakes in Central Turkey
YAĞBASAN, ÖZLEM; Demir, Vandettin; Yazıcıgil, Hasan (2020-02-01)
Trend analyses of meteorological variables play an important role in assessing the long-term changes in water levels for sustainable management of shallow lakes that are extremely vulnerable to climatic variations. Lake Mogan and Lake Eymir are shallow lakes offering aesthetic, recreational, and ecological resources. Trend analyses of monthly water levels and meteorological variables affecting lake levels were done by the Mann-Kendall (MK), Modified Mann-Kendall (MMK), Sen Trend (ST), and Linear trend (LT) ...
