Determination of some physical and mechanical properties of Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) trees grown in the Denizli area of Turkey

The most extensive distribution of Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) trees in the world is found in Turkey. This species varies depending on the regions in Turkey for growth features, such as climate, soil structure and slope. In this study, the technological properties of Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) grown in the Denizli area were studied. Within the scope of the study, their physical properties, such as...

The application of some biodiversity indices in the Tortum Stream, Erzurum, Turkey

The aim of the present study was to investigate biodiversity index, dominancy index and equivalence index of diatom community in the Tortum Stream and its tributaries. Diatom samples were collected from nine stations on the main river and tributaries between July 2012 and May 2013. A total of 36 taxa of Bacillariophyceae were identified. Dominant species was Cocconeis placentula in all stations. Biodiversity...

Application of vertical electrical soundings to characterize aquifer potential in Ota, Southwestern Nigeria

A knowledge of hydrogeophysical parameters of aquifers is essential for groundwater  resource assessment, development and management. Traditionally, these parameters are estimated using pumping test carried out in boreholes or wells; but this is often costly and time consuming. Surface geophysical measurements can provide a cost effective and efficient estimates of these parameters. In the present work,...
