Evaluation of Water-Energy Nexus in Sakarya River Basin, Turkey

2020-01-01
Achieving sustainable water-energy relationship is especially important for semi-arid regions. Water consumption due to electricity generation can reach up to 8.4% of the total water potential in the study area. Between 659 and 2851 m(3) of water is found to be consumed per GWh of electricity generated at cooling systems.

Assessment of responsible sectors having considerable pollution load in Yesilirmak river basin, Turkey
Erdem, Elif; Yetiş, Ülkü; Department of Environmental Engineering (2018)
The Water Framework Directive(WFD) of the European Union requires achieving good quantitative and qualitative status for all water bodies within its territory. For achieving good chemical and ecological status, the Member States were expected to comply with the Environmental Quality Standards(EQSs) for 45 dangerous substances identified as "priority" and river basin “specific pollutants” requiring identification. This study aims to identify the potential point pollution sources of the river basin specific p...
Sürdürülebilirlik ve Bölgesel Kalkınmada Altyapı Sistemleri
Şenyel Kürkçüoğlu, Müzeyyen Anıl (2021-12-01)
In this study, the relationship of infrastructure systems which enable the relations, service and information flows of individuals, communities and institutions with sustainability is discussed. Infrastructure systems are initially evaluated in single component basis, then, being discussed in an integrated way at urban and regional levels covering the mutual impacts of environment, economy and society as the three pillars of sustainability. The use of renewable resources, shifting to smart grid, distributed...
Modelling of Dredged Material Disposal: Mersin Bay Case Study
Sadighrad, Ehsan; Tuğrul, Süleyman; Salihoğlu, Barış (2015-10-10)
Management of disposal of solid materials dredged from harbours, shipping channels and coastal environments for different purposes is essential for sustainable land/marine ecosystems, keeping economic values and human quality of life along coastal areas. Therefore, comprehensive and detailed investigations of geo-chemical properties of organic/inorganic pollutants in dredged materials and principal physical and bio-geo-chemical properties of the selected disposal sites are commonly a prerequisite for any pl...
Analysis of economic data using robust methods
Coşar, Evren Erdogan; Akkaya, Ayşen; Department of Statistics (2002)
Export plays an important role in the economic development of a country. Because of its importance in implementing trade policies, there is an extensive literature on the estimation of export functions. Most of the studies on estimating export functions utilized conventional econometric techniques with the normality assumption of innovations. However, it has been recently recognized that non-normal distributions for innovations are more common in practice. IllThe main aim of this study is to estimate the ex...
