Its impacts may also be serious and costly. This study, considering the fact that drought is a significant natural disaster, aimed to investigate the characteristics of drought in the Küçük Menderes River Basin. Among several drought indices, the Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) and Streamflow Drought Index (SDI) were used for drought analysis. SPI and SDI were applied to the monthly precipitation data of Selçuk and Ödemis meteorological stations with nos. 17854 and 17822, and to the monthly flow data of Selçuk and Bülbüller flow gauging stations with nos. E06A001 and D06A012, respectively. Drought classes for each month were obtained through the referred drought indices. Using the drought classes, meteorological and hydrological droughts were statistically investigated at a regional scale by determining the drought classes’ occurrence probabilities, the expected residence time in each drought severity class, the expected first transition time, and the drought class with the highest probability of occurrence in the near future.</span></div> Serbay Tatar, Ebru Eris Copyright (c) 2022 Scientific Research Communications Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000 The Conceptual Study of Non-Stick Cookware Coatings and the Effect of Some Corresponding Additives on Their Performance <p>In this study the effect of some additives including Alumina, B4C and different types of SiC on glossiness, impact resistance, pencil hardness, conical bent resistance, corrosion, humidity and chemical resistance of non-stick coatings were studied. The results revealed that glossiness of the coatings decrease by addition of the additives but the overall resistance of the coatings grow by adding these substances among which boron carbide additive had the best effect on the coating general performance.</p> Jabir Ismaeili, Jigneshkumar Patel, Bikem Övez Copyright (c) 2022 Scientific Research Communications Wed, 24 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000
