Abstract. Effects of different extraction methods at different conditions on total phenolic content (TPC) of nettle (Urtica diocia) were investigated. Water was used as solvent. TPC analysis was performed according to Folin-Ciocalteu method. In microwave extraction, heating was achieved using microwaves at 407W power level. Effects was obtained as 1:30 solid-to-solvent ratio for 10min. Extraction was also performed conventionally at 1:30 solid-to-solvent ratio for 30min for comparison. There was no significant difference between microwave and conventional extractions with respect to TPC but extraction time was reduced by about 67% in of different solid-to-solvent ratios (1:10, 1:20 and 1:30g/ml) and times (5, 10, 15, and 20min) were studied. The best extraction condition microwave extraction. Extractions using ultrasonic probe were performed in two different power levels (50% and 80% power) at 50% pulser mode and at 40±5°C temperature. Maximum power of ultrasound was 300W. Different solid-to-solvent ratios (1:10, 1:20 and 1:30) and time levels (5, 10, 20, and 30min) were experienced. Solid-to-solvent ratio of 1:30, 30min and 80% power were determined as optimum condition in ultrasonic extraction. Extraction was also performed with maceration using 1:30 solid-tosolvent ratio at 40°C for 24h for comparison. There was no significant difference between ultrasonic extraction and maceration with respect to TPC. TPC of nettle by different extraction methods changed in the range of 19.7- 28.8 mg GAE (Gallic Acid Equivalent)/g dry material. TPC of extracts obtained by microwaves and ultrasound were not significantly different from each other but extraction time was reduced significantly in microwave extraction

Circulation of the Turkish Straits System under interannual atmospheric forcing
Aydoğdu, Ali; Pinardi, Nadia; Özsoy, Emin; Danabasoglu, Gokhan; Gürses, Özgür; Karspeck, Alicia (Copernicus GmbH, 2018-9-11)
Abstract. A simulation of the Turkish Straits System (TSS) using a high-resolution, three-dimensional, unstructured mesh ocean circulation model with realistic atmospheric forcing for the 2008–2013 period is presented. The depth of the pycnocline between the upper and lower layers remains stationary after 6 years of integration, indicating that despite the limitations of the modelling system, the simulation maintains its realism. The solutions capture important responses to high-frequency atmospheric...
Near real-time estimation of ionosphere vertical total electron content from GNSS satellites using B-splines in a Kalman filter
Erdogan, Eren; Schmidt, Michael; Seitz, Florian; Durmaz, Murat (Copernicus GmbH, 2017-2-27)
Abstract. Although the number of terrestrial global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers supported by the International GNSS Service (IGS) is rapidly growing, the worldwide rather inhomogeneously distributed observation sites do not allow the generation of high-resolution global ionosphere products. Conversely, with the regionally enormous increase in highly precise GNSS data, the demands on (near) real-time ionosphere products, necessary in many applications such as navigation, are growing very fas...
Reviewing the Implementation of Life Sciences Curriculum in Turkey Using Elicitation Techniques
Engin Demir, Cennet (2018-06-01)
Abstract. The aims of this case study were (1) to investigate the general characteristics of the Life Sciences Curriculum (LSC); (2) to examine how the LSC is implemented in a public primary school from the perspectives of teachers, students and administrators; and (3) to identify whether implementation of the curriculum was in line with the principles of constructivist pedagogy. The study participants consisted of the school administrator, 2 co-administrators, 4 classroom teachers and 87 students fr...
Effects of nanoadditives and different conventional flame redardants on the flammability of polystyrene
Sipahioğlu, Bengü Melike; Kaynak, Cevdet; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2012)
In this thesis, there were four purposes. The first one was to investigate effects of nanoclays (NC) on the flammability behavior of polystyrene (PS). The second purpose was to investigate contribution of nanoclays to the flame retardancy performance of conventional phosphorus based flame retardant; triphenyl phosphate (TPP) and its synergist melamine cyanurate (MCA). For the third purpose contribution of nanoclays to the flame retardancy performance of another conventional halogenated flame retardant; brom...
The effects of the material density and dimensions of the landslide on the generated tsunamis
İnsel, Işıl; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
In this thesis study; mechanism and modeling of tsunamis generated by landslides are investigated. Landslide parameters affecting the surface wave characterisics are studied. In order to understand occurance of this kind of tsunamis, among many historical tsunamis, the ones that are triggered by landslides are detected and studied. The generation of the landslide generated tsunamis are modeled using TWO-LAYER model, which solves nonlinear long wave equations simultaneously within two interfacing layers with...
