Sources and source regions effecting the aerosol composition of the Eastern Mediterranean
DOĞAN, GÜRAY; Guellue, G.; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2008-04-01)
Positive matrix factorization (PMF) was used to deduce the aerosol sources at a rural site on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, using sample collected between February 1992 and December 1993. Approximately 600 daily aerosol samples were collected and 40 elements and compounds were analyzed by atomic absorption spectrometry, instrumental neutron activation analysis, ion chromatography and colorimetry.

Sources regions affecting chemical composition of aerosols and precipitation in the eastern Mediterranean atmosphere determined using trajectory statistics
Gunaydin, GC; Tuncel, G (2002-06-15)
Although fair amount of data on the levels of atmospheric pollutants, such as SO42- NO3-, NH4+, trace elements, O-3 and recently VOC's had been generated in both eastern and western parts of the Mediterranean basin, information on the source regions of these pollutants is scarce. In this study, source regions affecting chemical composition of atmospheric aerosols and precipitation at two sampling locations, which are located on the Mediterranean and Black Sea costs of Turkey, are investigated using trajecto...

A total of 34volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were measured in the indoor of laboratories, offices and classrooms of the Chemical Engineering Department of Hacettepe University in Ankara in 2week-day passive sampling campaigns. The average concentrations ranged from 0.77 to 265g m(-3) at the different indoor sites, with the most abundant VOC found to be toluene (119.6g m(-3)), followed by styrene (21.24g m(-3)), 2-ethyltoluene (17.11g m(-3)), n-hexane (10.21g m(-3)) and benzene (9.42g m(-3)). According to ...
Sources of volatile organic compounds at urban and rural Kütahya atmosphere
Bek, Tuğçe; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Department of Environmental Engineering (2015)
This study is a part of a fairly extensive study to investigate contributions of the two thermal power plants, Tunçbilek and Seyitömer, on air quality at Kütahya atmosphere. VOCs were measured at two sampling stations, one was established in the down-town of Kütahya and the other one in the Northeast of the Kütahya. Samples were collected using canisters and they were analyzed using GC-FID system. Average concentrations of VOCs varied between 0.12 g/m3 and 23 g/m3 at urban station and 0.06 g/m3 and 33 g...
