Concentrations of inorganic pollutants, pesticides and PCBs were measured in 42 sources including rivers, streams, and industrial and domestic discharge points along the Turkish Black Sea coast in three seasons of the year 1993, The measured concentrations were compared with water quality standards currently effective in Turkey in order to determine the levels of pollution in the rivers and streams, Concentrations were also combined with the water discharge data to determine annual loads of pollutants disch...
Land surface emissivity variations at infrared wavelengths for the selected regions in Turkey
Akyüz, Berat; Esendemir, Akif; Department of Physics (2011)
In this thesis, land surface emissivity variations are examined with respect to the land surface type, wavelength, and time (season and month) for the seven selected regions in Turkey using MODIS emissivity database and precipitation amount. Investigating land surface emissivity variations are important in many applications and it is known that studies about these variations are done for many regions except Turkey. This study is prior knowledge for Turkey to be used in infrared (IR) background models, surfa...
Land degradation assessment for an abondoned coal mine with geospatial information technologies
Emil, Mustafa Kemal; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Mining Engineering (2010)
This study proposes an approach for land degradation assessment for an abandoned coal mine by using geospatial information technologies. The land degradation assessment focuses on two major changes: topographical and Land Use and Land Cover (LULC). For this purpose, stereo aerial photos, Worldview-1, Landsat and ASTER images, Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) data, Global Positioning System (GPS) data, and ancillary maps were used for abandoned Ovacık surface coal mine. Volume of excavations and fillings, dr...
Land use optimization for improved transportation system performance, case study : Ankara
Alaylı, Berna; İnal, Ayhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
This thesis investigates the effects of urban land use on transportation system performance in terms of various land use factors such as density, mixed or single land use, jobs-housing balance, street patterns, transit accessibility. Reviewed studies show that urban land use has considerable effects on transportation system performance measures which are average travel distances per person, level of service, air quality, gasoline consumption etc. Based on the obtained results, it is concluded that one of th...
Land-cover Classification in SAR Images using Dictionary Learning
Aktas, Gizem; Bak, Cagdas; Nar, Fatih; Sen, Nigar (2015-09-24)
Land-cover classification in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images has significance in both civil and military remote sensing applications. Accurate classification is a challenging problem due to variety of natural and man-made objects, seasonal changes at acquisition time, and diversity of image reconstruction algorithms.. In this study, Feature Preserving Despeckling (FPD), which is an edge preserving total variation based speckle reduction method, is applied as a preprocessing step. To handle the mention...
