TRENDS IN THE DEGRADATION OF FRESHWATER URBAN WETLANDS IN KAMPALA, UGANDA:
A CASE STUDY OF LUBIGI WETLAND

Author/s MARTIN MUSINGUZI, ANNABELLA HABINKA EJIRI
Source International Journal of Research In Earth and Enviornmental Sciences pg 01 – 09 Vol 04. No. 03– 2016
Abstract

Under advancing innovative policies and local solutions for community transformation, this study is aimed at determining the future of Lubigi wetland using satellite images. Wetlands, especially those within around cities are at a risk of being depleted. Most of the areas that ought to be conserved are facing several unregulated human activities (titling of such areas, farming, and developmental projects). There are many stakeholders that are vital to meeting developmental solutions for community transformation but these stakeholders need to work hand in hand.. . .. . …

Abstract

Ebrie Lagoon is one of the most important aquatic ecosystems in Ivory Coast due to its ecological values and fish farms. Unfortunately it suffered many years ago to fish mortality. The quality of Ebrie Lagoon waters was assessed from February 2014 to January 2015 to provide possible causes of fish mortality. Average monthly values of physical and chemical parameters including temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, transparency, salinity and suspended matter in surface waters ranged between 25.09 -32.23 °C, 6.01 -8.77, 1.27 – 13.47 mgL-1, 0.50 -3.50 m, 0.04 -11.08 ‰ and 2.50 – 48 mgL-1, respectively

Abstract

Water resources, considered the natural wealth sources of the world due to their biological diversity, are the most important ecosystems of the earth with their natural functions and economic values. The water resources of Istanbul, which is the biggest city in Turkey, confront environmental problems brought about by the increasing population, urbanization and industrialization. Treatment of industrial wastewater before being discharged into the receiving environment is one of theessential.. . .. . …

Abstract

Calculated coefficients of annual runoff variation of the Tisza River basin in the boundaries of Zacarpathian region are considered in this article. Methods of maximum likelihood and moments were used to calculate these coefficients. As the result spatial generalization of coefficients of annual runoff variation was done and dependence.. . .. . …

IDENTIFICATION OF DROUGHT PARAMETERS
THROUGH THE USE OF ENTROPY

 

Author/s 1ULKER GUNER BACANLI, 2TURKAY BARAN, 1FATIH DIKBAS
Source International Journal of Research In Earth and Enviornmental Sciences pg 01 – 13 Vol 04. No. 01– 2016
Abstract

The main purpose of the present study, investigate the availability of the informational entropy (IE) method as a drought parameters. For this purpose, the drought characteristics in the Northern Aegean Region in Turkey were investigated. Various drought indexes, which are widely used drought analysis methods, like the Erinc Index and the Standard Precipitation Index were performed for the region. In addition, the informational entropy (IE) method was also investigated and compared the common indexes in this study.

The evaluated data in 29 stations are gauged by The Turkish State Meteorological Service (DMI). For determining the drought indexes both long term precipitation and temperature data were used

SPATIO-TEMPORAL CLUSTER ANALYSIS OF THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTERS IN TURKEY AND ITS SURROUNDING AREA BETWEEN 1900 AND 2014

 

Author/s AHMET KARABURUN, ALI DEMIRCI
Source International Journal of Research In Earth and Enviornmental Sciences pg 14 – 29 Vol 04. No. 01– 2016
Abstract

The aim of this study is to analyze spatial patterns of earthquakes with magnitude m=3 that have occurred in and around Turkey during the period of time between 1900 and 2014. Apart from the central tendency and dispersion method, the Nearest Neighbor, Global Moran’s I, Anselin Local Moran’s I, and Kernel Density Estimator methods were applied to the earthquake data in a GIS environment in order to understand directional trends of earthquakes and to determine where earthquakes constitute clusters with different magnitudes. The analyses were also performed for two different time periods, 1936-1974 and 1975-2014
