Analysis of drought is globally classified as a natural disaster due to the damage it causes. As a result detection of its characteristics is essential for understanding and reducing the adverse effects of this natural disaster and improving its prediction. In this study, root zone soil moisture (SM) estimates obtained from NOAH hydrological model and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) obtained from MODIS observations are used to analyze the recent agricultural droughts in Turkey that are diagnosed using the crop yield statistics. In this study, soil moisture and NDVI values are used to estimate the crop yield for various scenarios. With the utilization of these commonly used drought indicators parameters (SM and NDVI) a detailed analysis of 2007 and 2013 drought events as well as the crop yield conditions between years 2000 and 2016 have been carried out.

Analysis of the 2007 and 2013 Droughts in Turkey by NOAH Hydrological Model
Bulut, Burak; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (2016-10-01)
Analysis of drought, which is classified as a natural disaster, is globally considering the damage it gives. As a result detection of its characteristics is essential for understanding and reducing the effects of this natural disaster and for imminent prediction. In this study, soil moisture estimates obtained from NOAH hydrological model and normalized difference vegetation index obtained from MODIS observations are used to analysis the recent droughts in Turkey. With the utilization of these parameters th...
Evaluation of Relations among Drought Indices and Remotely Sensed Soil: Moisture Datasets over Turkey
Bulut, Burak; Afshar, Mehdi; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (null; 2018-04-08)
Drought is globally classified as a natural disaster due to the damage it causes. As a result, detection of its characteristics is essential for understanding and reducing the adverse effects of this natural disaster and improving its prediction. Spatial distribution and temporal changes of soil moisture is one of the important components in climatic, ecological and natural hazards at global, regional and local levels scales. In this study, different drought indices (i.e. SPI, SPEI, PDSI) and remotely sense...
Estimation of dynamic soil properties and soil amplification ratios with alternative techniques
Şişman, Fatma Nurten; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Özacar, Atilla Arda; Department of Earthquake Studies (2013)
Earthquakes are among the most destructive natural disasters affecting urban populations. Structural damage caused by the earthquakes varies depending not only on the seismic source and propagation properties but also on the soil properties. The amplitude and frequency content of seismic shear waves reaching the earth’s surface is dependent on local soil conditions. It is well known that the soft sediments on top of hard bedrock can greatly amplify the ground motion and cause severe structural damage. When ...
Analysis of drought events in North Cyprus
Khan, Sana; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2019-9)
Drought is a temporary climatic condition which arises due to lack of precipitation. It has become an important natural phenomenon for North Cyprus due to its semi-arid climate and with vulnerabilities culminating as a result of climate change there is a dire need to keep a good track of such extreme climate events for sustainable water resource management. The island is facing serious water shortages, and for Mediterranean region climate change impacts on water resources has become a pressing issue, hence,...
Assessment of different rainfall products in flood simulations
Özkaya, Arzu; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
Floods happening due to heavy rainfall are one of the most widespread natural hazards. To predict such events, accurate rainfall products and well calibrated hydrologic models are essential especially in urban settlements for life savings. With the objective of assessing the rain detection potential of rainfall data products, several hourly rainfall datasets are used as forcing inputs in two hydrologic models. Physic based distributed model, WRF-Hydro, and conceptual based lumped model, HEC HMS, are used to...
