In terms of net intensification in the greenhouse effect ie., rise of global temperature which has triggered melting of glacier thus increasing sea level and acidification of sea, carbon dioxide alone contributes approximately three-fourth of the net greenhouse radiative forcing by man-made (anthropogenic) greenhouse gases emissions. Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) technology; a promising strategy for capturing of carbon dioxide from point sources before its release to atmosphere by using various sorbents is gaining global interest. In this study, the established carbon capture technologies with methods of carbon dioxide separation along there pros and cons are discussed. Carbon-based adsorbents are considered as the most versatile adsorbents for carbon dioxide due to their extraordinary physical and chemical properties. In this manuscript, recent developments on carbonaceous adsorbents (biochar, activated carbons, and graphene-based adsorbents) and their role in carbon dioxide capture during different combustion processes and conditions have been comprehensively focused.

Expert discourse on Turkish climate policy
Üzelgün, Mehmet Ali; Rittersberger Tılıç, Helga İda; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2007)
This study renders the current frame of global climate change policies as a mirror of a new era, marked by surpass of the once absolute limits to growth towards humanity’s management and optimization of natural processes of the planet. A total of 24 interviews were realized with Turkish governmental and non-governmental experts on climate change, after application of a two-staged environmental attitude and policy questionnaire. Critical discourse analysis of interviews was performed to elaborate the results...
Analysis and modeling of spatially and temporally varying meteorological parameter : precipitation over Turkey
Aslantaş Bostan, Pınar; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Heuvelink, Gerrad; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2013)
As precipitation is the very important parameter of climate and hydrology, exploring spatial and temporal distribution and variation of this variable can give an idea about climate conditions and water resources in the future. Therefore accurate mapping of the temporal, spatial and space-time distributions of precipitation is important for many applications in hydrology, climatology, agronomy, ecology and other environmental sciences. In this thesis, temporal, spatial and space-time distributions and variat...
Impacts of multiple stressors on freshwater biota across spatial scales and ecosystems
Birk, Sebastian; et. al. (2020-08-01)
Climate and land-use change drive a suite of stressors that shape ecosystems and interact to yield complex ecological responses (that is, additive, antagonistic and synergistic effects). We know little about the spatial scales relevant for the outcomes of such interactions and little about effect sizes. These knowledge gaps need to be filled to underpin future land management decisions or climate mitigation interventions for protecting and restoring freshwater ecosystems. This study combines data across sca...
Recent evidence of the relationship between carbon dioxide emissions, energy use, GDP, and population in Ghana: A linear regression approach
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (2017-01-01)
In this study, the relationship between carbon dioxide emissions, energy use, GDP, and population was examined in Ghana from 1971-2013 using a linear regression approach. Evidence from the study shows a long-run equilibrium relationship running from energy use (EU), gross domestic product (GDP), and population to carbon dioxide emissions. There was evidence of long-run equilibrium relationship from GDP to carbon dioxide emissions and population to carbon dioxide emissions. There was a unidirectional causali...
Numerical simulation of coalescence of micron-submicron sized droplets and thin films
Erkan, Yılmaz Barış; Dursunkaya, Zafer; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2021-9)
Dynamics of droplet merging emerges with an utmost significance in many scientific areas and its effects ranges vastly from agriculture to engineering. Understanding the underlying physics of coalescence of droplets is, therefore, crucial to have control over its effects in complex systems which they are included. In this study, time dependent coalescence dynamics of fully wetting cylindrical droplets is investigated extensively. Droplets are created utilizing the Young-Laplace equation, and the dynamics of...
