A Look at the Change in Water Occupancy Rates of Gölova Dam Lake, Turkey


Seher Dirican
Abstract

Climate change stands out as the biggest threat to agriculture and food production. The study aimed to examine the water occupancy rates of the Gölova Dam Lake from 2010 to 2019. The data regarding the water occupancy rate of the Gölova Dam Lake was obtained from the General Directorate of State Hydraulic Works of the Republic of Turkey. The results showed that the water occupancy rate was lowest (2.70%) in 2014, while the highest water occupancy rate (38.90%) was in 2016. The average water occupancy rate of Gölova Dam Lake for the period between 2010-2019 remained at 23.81±12.05. The evaluation revealed that the water occupancy rates of Gölova Dam Lake, decreased up to 75% on average between the period of 2010-2019. If this situation continues, the Gölova Dam Lake will become short and it will cause a decrease in the amount of water discharge that can accentuate due to climate change.
