Coastal scenery: Appreciation and evaluation
Ergin, Ayşen; Micallef, A. (2006-07-01)
Twenty-six parameters have been selected that delineate coastal scenery. These were obtained via consultation between coastal users and experts in the field. The parameters were assessed as to their priorities and weightings given. Application of fuzzy logic techniques enabled a decision parameter (D) to be calculated for any coastal scene. Over 100 worldwide coastal sites were analysed via the technique and a five-class differentiation obtained from D values.
Coastal scenic evaluation by application of fuzzy logic mathematics
Uçar, Barış; Ergin, Ayşen; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
Coastal scenery evaluated by utilization of selected landscape components was subject to fuzzy logic system approach. Based on this methodology, coastal areas were grouped into five classes using the evaluation index D giving the overall result of scenic assessment over the attributes. Within the methodology, public perception surveys from Turkey, UK, Malta, and Croatia were used as a tool for environmental perception in the methodology. The results of the public perception surveys were utilized to obtain t...
Coastal scenic assesment using fuzzy logic approach
Karakaya, Selami Tansel; Ergin, Ayşen; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
This thesis analyzes the coastal landscape evaluation that is strongly rooted in the man-environment tradition. Scenery is a natural resource and managers need to attempt the evaluation of scenic resources in an objective and quantitative way that can be utilized mainly in landscape preservation and protection. The thesis will try to find an objective way in evaluation of the coastal scenery by using fuzzy logic mathematics and public perception studies. Using mathematical model developed within the frame w...
Coastal Scenery Assessment by Means of a Fuzzy Logic Approach
Ergin, Ayşen (2019-01-01)
Landscape is a major element affecting people's life quality and coastal landscape evaluation is strongly rooted in the man-environment tradition. Coastal areas, all over the world, are under threat due to the conflicting requirements that rely on natural scenery of such as habitation, recreation, and industry. Since 'coastal scenery' is a natural resource, it has to be evaluated in an objective and quantitative way to provide a means of comparison against coastal activities and for environmental impact ass...
Coastal management to improve environmental quality in Göcek Bay, Turkey
Can, Ö.; Alp, Emre; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet (2012-09-17)
Being one of the specially protected areas declared by Environmental Protection Agency for Special Areas in Turkey (EPASA), Göcek Bay is threatened by increasing boat tourism. Because of the insufficient legal practices and regulations, boats continue to discharge their domestic waste and bilge wastewaters to the bay. Large scale measures are being planned for decreasing the pollution and protecting the region. For a sustainable coastal management, technical, social, political and economic tools are needed ...
