Pump and fertilize, while removing nitrate the groundwater, can also reduce nitrate and pesticide requirement. In this study, we constructed groundwater models via HYDRUS 1D for one-hectare maize field in prevalent soils in Turkey and Eskişehir, Adana, Şanlıurfa, Düzce climates in Turkey, assessed the most likely promising conditions for pump and fertilize, and found that even in 50 mg/L nitrate concentrations, this process is beneficial, especially in Şanlıurfa similar climates (687 TL/year). Nitrogen leac...
Sustainable development and management of an aquifer system in western Turkey
SAKIYAN, J; Yazıcıgil, Hasan (2004-02-01)
This study presents the establishment of sustainable development and management policies for the Kucuk Menderes River Basin aquifer system in western Turkey. Geological, hydrogeological, and geophysical data are used conjunctively to define various hydrogeological units and their geometry. Distributions of hydraulic-parameter values and recharge are estimated by geostatistical methods and hydrologic simulations, respectively. A finite-difference groundwater flow model is used to represent the unconfined flo...
Optimal design and operation of land-treatment systems for petroleum hydrocarbons
Kivanc, S; Ünlü, Kahraman (1999-04-22)
Land treatment technology has been extensively used for the disposal of petroleum hydrocarbon containing wastes. Effective management of land treatment systems requires optimum design and operation of the system in order to achieve the fastest and most complete degradation of petroleum hydrocarbons without contamination of the environment. This paper describes a model that can be used for optimal design and operation of land treatment systems for petroleum hydrocarbon containing wastes. The model is compose...
Optimal dewatering of an excavation site
Demirbas, Korkut; Altan Sakarya, Ayşe Burcu; Önder, Halil (2012-06-01)
Optimal dewatering of an excavation area in an unconfined aquifer is studied using a combined optimisation-simulation approach. In combining a groundwater model with an optimisation model, a response matrix approach, generated on the basis of linear superposition, is used. ModMan, which calls Modflow repeatedly to generate a response matrix, is utilised to transform the groundwater management problem into a linear integer programming problem. A hypothetical dewatering area is considered to examine the effec...
Modeling irrigation with nitrate contaminated groundwater
Hatipoglu, Guray; Kurt, Zöhre (2019-03-01)
An alternative method to treat the nitrate-contaminated groundwater under the agricultural fields while providing economic benefit is called pump and fertilize. Pump and fertilize, while removing the nitrate in the groundwater, can reduce nitrate and pesticide requirement. However, up to date, there are no studies evaluating the effect of this application under different soil/climate conditions. In order to apply this technology in the field and to determine its effect, a feasibility study needs to be perfo...
