The impact of education on economic growth in Palestine: 1990-2014
Abugamea, Gaber H. (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2017-12)
The objective of this paper is to measure the contribution of education to growth in per capita real GDP in Palestine over the period 1990-2014 by employing OLS estimation on the growth accounting formula. Over the period, per capita real GDP- increased in a yearly average by about 3.6 percent. Of about 47 percent contributed by total employed labor and capital components to economic growth only about 11 percent was contributed by education through private-public enrollments ratio. Whilst it is expecte...
The optimality of potential rescaling approaches in land data assimilation
Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (American Meteorological Society, 2013-04-01)
It is well known that systematic differences exist between modeled and observed realizations of hydrological variables like soil moisture. Prior to data assimilation, these differences must be removed in order to obtain an optimal analysis. A number of rescaling approaches have been proposed for this purpose. These methods include rescaling techniques based on matching sampled temporal statistics, minimizing the least squares distance between observations and models, and the application of triple collocatio...
Chemical composition of atmospheric particles as a tool to identify sources affecting aerosol population in the Eastern Black sea atmosphere
Balcılar, İlker; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Department of Environmental Engineering (2018)
Daily size distributed particulate matter samples were collected at a rural station on Eastern Black Sea region between March 2011 and December 2013. Particulate matter samples were analyzed for trace elements by ICP-MS and ED-XRF and for black carbon by Aethalometer. Mean concentrations of trace elements in the fine fraction varied between 0.0011 ng m-3 for Tm and 1382.42 ng m-3 for SO42-, while mean concentrations in the coarse fraction varied between 0.0017 ng m-3 for Tm and 1441.5 ng m-3 for Si. The dom...
The preparation and characterization of zeolite confined rhodium(0) nanoclusters: a heterogeneous catalyst for the hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of ammonia-borane
Çalışkan, Salim; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2010)
Among the new hydrogen storage materials, ammonia borane (AB) appears to be the most promising one as it has high hydrogen content, high stability, and being environmentally benign. Dehydrogenation of AB can be achieved via hydrolysis, thermolysis or methanolysis. Methanolysis of AB eliminates some drawbacks of other dehydrogenation reactions of AB. The use of colloidal and supported particles as more active catalyst than their bulky counterparts for the hydrolysis of AB implies that reducing the particle s...
The Role of Knowledge on Economic Growth: The Case of Turkey, 1963-2010
Utku İsmihan, Fatma M. (Science And Technology Policies Research Center, Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey), 2012)
The importance of knowledge for long-run economic growth has long been an important research area for economists and policy makers. This paper attempts to analyze the impact of knowledge on economic growth in Turkey over the 1963-2010 period, by using a production function approach. In contrast to early studies, which have analyzed the impact of a single dimension of knowledge on economic growth, a knowledge index is constructed to see the impact of various dimensions of knowledge with a single and comprehe...
