Being a part of an architectural whole, an architectural fragment has various potentials; one is directly related to its intrinsic spatial value due to its original scalar properties. The other is its displacement, which introduces possibilities of trans-positions within its display. These trans-positions involve the conditions of “de-contextualization” and “re-contextualization” in between fragments, monuments, and environments of architecture and art, which define complex surface to space compositions and overreach the spatial terms “in” and “out” or adjectives “large” and “small”. The study introduces “relief-space” as a scaleless surface and space formation to define this architectural condition. The aim is to use the visual field and representative medium of “relief”, as decoders, in order to be able to reread the visual field of display environments. In this study, spatial conditions from The Sir John Soane Museum in London and Pergamonmuseum in Berlin are redefined as relief-spaces through their transpositional surface and space relationships. Existing examples of art works and related architectural drawings are used in order to be able to make the surface and space relationship of each environment visually available. In other words, this research proposes a “double reading”. The first reading is reproductive, in which relief as an expanded surface, and act of display as an expanded space, are understood with their determinate conditions. The second reading is a critical reading, including an active interpretation of relief-space defined as a result of the trans-positions of display in between fragments, monuments and environments. The discussion questions both the conventional singularity of museum and galleries as “the” exhibition space and the conventional stability of architecture, which has been accepted only as the “container”.


Seasonal variability of the Caspian Sea three-dimensional circulation, sea level and air-sea interaction
Ibrayev, R. A; Ozsoy, E; Schrum, C.; Sur, H. I. (Copernicus GmbH, 2010-3-3)
<jats:p>Abstract. A three-dimensional primitive equation model including sea ice thermodynamics and air-sea interaction is used to study seasonal circulation and water mass variability in the Caspian Sea under the influence of realistic mass, momentum and heat fluxes. River discharges, precipitation, radiation and wind stress are seasonally specified in the model, based on available data sets. The evaporation rate, sensible and latent heat fluxes at the sea surface are computed interactively through an atmo...
Illitization of Late Devonian-Early Carboniferous K-bentonites from Western Pontides, NW Turkey: Implications for their origin and age
BOZKAYA, ÖMER; Günal Türkmenoğlu, Asuman; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Unluce, Ozge; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Schroeder, Paul A. (2016-12-01)
K-bentonite (tephra) layers are exposed as thin beds within Late Devonian-Early Carboniferous carbonates of the Yilanh formation at four different locations in northwestern, Turkey. Clays separated from K-bentonites in the Gavurpman, Yilanh Burnu (Barth) and Cimsir Cukurlari (Sapca) quarries and the highway tunnel section near Zonguldak were analyzed by X-ray diffraction, optical, scanning and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry. The clay mineral...
Modeling dissolved oxygen dynamics and hypoxia
Peña, M. A.; Katsev, S.; Oguz, T.; Gilbert, D. (Copernicus GmbH, 2010-3-9)
<jats:p>Abstract. Hypoxia conditions are increasing throughout the world, influencing biogeochemical cycles of elements and marine life. Hypoxia results from complex interactions between physical and biogeochemical processes, which can not be understood by observations alone. Models are invaluable tools at studying system dynamics, generalizing discrete observations and predicting future states. They are also useful as management tools for evaluating site-specific responses to management scenarios. Here we ...

Beta-casein A1/A2, kappa-casein and beta-lactoglobulin polymorphisms in Turkish cattle breeds
Dinc, H.; Ozkan, E.; Koban, E.; Togan, I. (Copernicus GmbH, 2013-10-10)
<jats:p>Abstract. In this study, the genetic diversity of three milk protein genes namely beta-casein, kappacasein and beta-lactoglobulin was estimated in Turkish cattle breeds. Based on these genes, breeds in Turkey have been grouped as: 1) Eastern Anatolian Red, Anatolian Black and Southern Anatolian Red and 2) Turkish Grey, Turkish Holstein and Holstein Candidate Bulls. B alleles of the three studied genes, which were reported to be positively related with cheese yield and quality, seemed to be low-inter...
