The role of site effects on elevated seismic demands and corollary structural damage during the October 30, 2020, M7.0 Samos Island (Aegean Sea) Earthquake
Altun, Selim; et. al. (2021-11-01)
On October 30, 2020 14:51 (UTC), a moment magnitude (M) 7.0 (USGS, EMSC) earthquake occurred in the Aegean Sea. This paper presents the reconnaissance findings regarding the site effects on recorded strong ground motion intensities and duration, along with the resulting induced-structural damage in Izmir Bay and Samos Island, respectively. In all rock records, relatively high intensity long period rock spectral accelerations were observed in the mid to long period range of 0.5-1.5 s, which are attributed to...
The effects of being a neighborhood disaster volunteer on general distress and post-traumatic growth among the survivors of 1999 Marmara earthquake
Tanrıdağlı, Z. Ceren; Karancı, Ayşe Nuray; Department of Psychology (2005)
This study aimed to examine the possible effects of being a volunteer in a nongovernmental organization (Neighborhood Disaster Support Project) for psychological distress and posttraumatic growth following the 1999 Marmara earthquake. The predictors of psychological distress and posttraumatic growth were also investigated. Risk factors were examined as pre-earthquake variables (e.g. socio-demographic variables), earthquake variables (e.g. severity of impact), and post-earthquake variables (e.g. being a Neig...
The impacts of the younger dryas period on plant and animal food resources of the ancient natufian culture and the economy
Ferah, Egemen; Pişkin, Evangelia; Department of Settlement Archaeology (2009)
This masters thesis investigates the environmental/climatic change that is thought to have brought about the economic shift and transition from Palaeolithic economic system of hunting gathering to Neolithic economic system of agriculture and domestication period around 11.000-10.000 years ago. This study uses the collected animal and plant data of the Natufian culture in the Levant region from the previous zooarchaeological and archaeobotanical literature anlyses. It shows a significant mathematical differe...
The effects of the material density and dimensions of the landslide on the generated tsunamis
İnsel, Işıl; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
In this thesis study; mechanism and modeling of tsunamis generated by landslides are investigated. Landslide parameters affecting the surface wave characterisics are studied. In order to understand occurance of this kind of tsunamis, among many historical tsunamis, the ones that are triggered by landslides are detected and studied. The generation of the landslide generated tsunamis are modeled using TWO-LAYER model, which solves nonlinear long wave equations simultaneously within two interfacing layers with...
The impacts of COVID-19 lockdown on PM10 and SO2 concentrations and association with human mobility across Turkey
Orak, Nur Hanife; Özdemir, Ozancan (2021-06-01)
The SARS-CoV-2 virus pandemic (COVID-19) has caused 2.25 million deaths worldwide by February 3, 2021 (JHU, 2021) and still causing severe health and economic disruptions with increasing rates. This study investigates the impact of lockdown measures on ambient air pollution and its association with human mobility in 81 cities of Turkey. We conducted a countrywide analysis using PM10 and SO2 measurement data by the Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and mobility data derived from cellular devic...
