Vegetation water content is an important parameter for retrieval of soil moisture from microwave data and for other remote sensing applications. Because liquid water absorbs in the shortwave infrared, the normalized difference infrared index (NDII), calculated from Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper band 4 (0.76-0.90 mu m wavelength) and band 5 (1.55-1.65 mu m wavelength), can be used to determine canopy equivalent water thickness (EWT), which is defined as the water volume per leaf area times the leaf area index (L...

Soil erosion risk mapping using geographic information systems : a case study on Kocadere creek watershed, İzmir
Okalp, Kıvanç; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2005)
Soil erosion is a major global environmental problem that is increasing year by year in Turkey. Preventing soil erosion requires political, economic and technical actions; before these actions we must learn properties and behaviors of our soil resources. The aims of this study are to estimate annual soil loss rates of a watershed with integrated models within GIS framework and to map the soil erosion risk for a complex terrain. In this study, annual soil loss rates are estimated using the Universal Soil Los...
Soil CO2 Flux and Temperature Measurements in Kızıldere Geothermal Field

Geothermal fields in Turkey have substantially higher carbon dioxide content compared to a typical geothermal field in the world. Geothermal Emission Control (GECO) project aims to reduce carbon emissions by reinjecting produced carbon dioxide from a pilot reinjection well. A high-resolution CO2 flux meter is used to measure the surface carbon dioxide flux and temperature parameters in Kızıldere field, which is one of the demonstration fields in this project. The aim of these measurements is to map the natu...

The organic carbon contents and textural composition of a total of 166 surficial sediment samples (from 10 to 1226 m water depths) together with data on primary productivity rates and dissolved oxygen concentrations have been studied to investigate the main controls on the distribution of organic carbon buried within the modern sediments across the Sea of Marmara.
