Nitrogen cycling in the offshore waters of the Black Sea
McCarthy, James J.; Yılmaz, Aysun; Coban-Yildiz, Yesim; Nevins, John L. (2007-09-01)
The purpose of this study was to measure directly the rates of several of the processes responsible for the production and utilization of nitrogenous nutrients, and to use these rates and other data to generate an annual nitrogen budget for the Black Sea. Water column samples and experimentation with (15)N labeled nutrients in the offshore waters of the Black Sea reveal strong seasonal cycles in the utilization of different forms of N, the regeneration of NH(4)(+) and the production of NO(2)(-) in and below...

Bio-fuel production from microalgae
Onay, Melih; Yücel, A Meral; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni; Department of Biochemistry (2015)
Bio-fuel is a renewable fuel and it includes different biofuel energy sources such as methane, bioethanol and biodiesel. Generally, biodiesel is produced from agricultural waste, vegetable oils such as soybean and palm oil. Third generation biofuels called as microalgae have been appeared nowadays. In the current study, biodiesel production from thermo-resistant green microalgae was focused on. For this aim, microalgae were sampled from a few hotspring points in Haymana and isolated. Identification and char...
Nitrogen fertilizer leaching from cropped and irrigated sandy soil in Central Turkey
Ünlü, Kahraman; Yurteri, C (Wiley, 1999-12-01)
Pollution of ground water caused by excessive and uncontrolled use of nitrogen fertilizer is worrying. A recent example of such pollution has been observed in an agricultural basin in the province of Nevsehir, Turkey, where up to 900 kg ha(-1) nitrogen fertilizer is used for growing potatoes in sandy soils under irrigation. Using nitrogen fertilizer in amounts that guarantee large yields without polluting ground water is essential. We present results of field experiments and numerical simulations involving ...
