© 2015 ASCE.Before investigating future climatic and hydrologic conditions over Peninsular Malaysia, preliminary climatic and hydrologic simulation results were presented in this paper. The coarse time-space resolution ECHAM5, MRI-CGCM2.3.2 and CCSM3 GCM historical control runs' atmospheric data during the period of 1970-1999 were dynamically downscaled into 1-hour-increment hydroclimate information at 6-km spatial resolution over Peninsular Malaysia. The simulated precipitation and the air temperature over the Peninsular Malaysia were presented. A selected watershed at Peninsular Malaysia was delineated into the Watershed Environmental HYdrology (WEHY) model computational units (MCUs). The WEHY model of the selected watershed was then calibrated to be used in simulating future hydrologic conditions.

Environmental data gaps in Black Sea catchment countries: INSPIRE and GEOSS State of Play
Myroshnychenko, Volodymyr; Ray, Nicolas; Lehmann, Anthony; Giuliani, Gregory; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan; Weller, Philip; Teodor, Dan (2015-02-01)
This paper presents the results of a large analysis of environmental data gaps in countries of the Black Sea catchment performed in the context of the FP7 enviroGRIDS project in 2010. We also assessed the level of compatibility of the data to the European directive establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE) and to the international standards of data interoperability as advocated by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and implemented in the Global Earth Obser...
Quality and Homogeneity Analysis of Precipitation Data in North Cyprus
Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ (2018-09-14)
This study aims to reveal procedures for testing and creating a set of complete, quality-controlled, and homogeneous precipitation data sets in North Cyprus. Database involves 37 daily precipitation series which are uniformly distributed throughout the study area with observation periods ranging from 1976 to 2015. As a first step of the procedures, the estimation of the missing values is carried out considering a range of distances with various estimation methods based on neighboring stations...
Sensitivity of WRF-derived hydrometeorological extremes to sea surface temperatures in regions with complex topography and diverse climate
Pilatin, Heves; Yücel, İsmail; Düzenli, Eren; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (2021-12-15)
© 2021 Elsevier B.V.This study investigates the impact of sea surface temperature (SST) describing the lower boundary of Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model on the extreme weather events that occurred on the Mediterranean (MED) and the Eastern Black Sea (EBS) regions of Turkey. For each region, one extreme event case is selected and characterized as a summer convective system in EBS and as a winter synoptic system in MED region. The SST impact on the WRF model forecasts of these events is accomplis...
Climate change impacts on meteorological drought using SPI and SPEI: case study of Ankara, Turkey
MEHR, ALI DANANDEH; Sorman, Ali Unal; Kahya, Ercan; Afshar, Mahdı Hesamı (Informa UK Limited, 2019-11-27)
Using regionally downscaled and adjusted outputs of three global climate models (GCMs), meteorological drought analysis was accomplished across Ankara, the capital city of Turkey. To this end, standardized precipitation index (SPI) and standardized precipitation evapotranspiration index (SPEI) were projected under (representative concentration pathway) RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 greenhouse gas scenarios. In general, our results show that Ankara experienced six severe and two extreme drought events during the referen...
Simulations of the Black Sea pelagic ecosystem by 1-D, vertically resolved, physical-biochemical models
Oguz, T; Ducklow, HW; Malanotte-Rizzoli, P; Murray, JW (Wiley, 1998-09-01)
The present paper summarizes the results of several simulations of the central Black Sea pelagic food web using three different 1-D, physical-biochemical, water column process models. The most simplified, five-compartment version is used to explore the robust biological features of the ecosystem and the role of upper-layer physics on the evolution of the euphotic zone biological processes. The other models, introducing additional biological complexities, show how these biologically structured models become ...
