Sustainability Field 3.4
Environmental Risk Management

Programmes assigned to this field

  Circulation of substances in the environment, mass balances, modelling of environmental processes and risk assessment
"Circulation of substances in environment" deals with environmental analytical chemistry, biological and chemical cycles, radiochemistry and (...)
"Circulation of substances in environment" deals with environmental analytical chemistry, biological and chemical cycles, radiochemistry and radioecology. Current information about levels and state of certain substance in the enviornment is investigated using analytical and biological analysis. Performing these analyses over time allows to monitor the transport and fate of these compounds in the environment. Result of this research programme can be applied as support for decision making and planning of environmental and research policy.

Objectives:
The programme aimed to:

produce more life and environmental scientists who are able to use mathematical, statistical and modelling techniques when addressing environmental problems

produce more mathematicians who are working on life science or environmental problems, or devising tools and methods for them.

make mathematicians and statisticians familiar with the practicalities of environmental investigations and

give environmental scientists sufficient understanding of the power (and limitations) of leading-edge mathematical and statistical methodologies, so as to facilitate effective collaborations when tackling environmental issues and devising new approaches to currently insoluble problems

SUMMARY OBJECTIVE
The objectives are to increase our understanding of flooding by generating new and original science and to support improved flood risk management.
The key aims of the programme remain as set out in the original project description;
a) The short-term delivery of tools and techniques to support more accurate flood forecasting and warning, improvements to the flood management infrastructure and the reduction of flood risk to people, property and the environment;
b) the establishment of a programme of high quality science that will enhance our understanding of flooding and improve our ability to reduce flood risk through the development of sustainable flood prevention, management and mitigation strategies.

Objectives:
The aims of the Joint Defra/EA Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Research and Development Programme are to:
address the needs of all flood and coastal defence authorities
help inform policy development
ensure that flood and coastal erosion risk management measures are delivered in a technically and environmentally sound and cost-effective manner
bridge the gap between work carried out by others (basic scientific research) and the development of operational systems.

Plötzliche Veränderungen, die durch Naturkatastrophen oder andere Zerstörungen hervorgerufen werden, stehen im Fokus des Projektes«, so Prof. Ehlers. »Besonders Einsatzkräfte, die in Krisengebiete geschickt werden, haben großes Interesse daran, schnell und zuverlässig zu erfahren, wo im Zielgebiet die größten Veränderungen zu finden sind«, ergänzt Prof. Michel. »Hierdurch lässt sich wertvolle Zeit für Bergungsarbeiten gewinnen«. Die Wissenschaftler entwickeln derzeit gemeinsam neue Software zur Auswertung von Satellitenbildern. Diese sollen über eine Kombination von Algorithmen, die Form, Farbe und Texturen von Bildobjekten berücksichtigen, Umwelt- und Naturveränderungen automatisch anzeigen.

GLOWA Danube Integrative Techniques, Szenarios and Strategies for the Future of Water in the upper Danube Area (Integrative Techniken, Szenarien und Strategien zur Zukunft des Wassers im Einzugsgebiet der Oberen Donau)

Global Climate Change will increasingly have regional impacts on the water resources. More frequent floods, low flows and droughts, the retreat of glaciers and of snow cover in the Alps as well as changes of the natural and agrarian vegetation particularly in the Upper Danube watershed will be likely consequences of Climate Change. They will influence strongly the future development of the region. In order to facilitate the most effective planning of future investments for decades (e.g. in energy management, farming, tourism, industry), an intensive examination of the regional consequences of Climate Change is necessary.

GLOWA-Danube is a research and development program focusing on the comprehensive analysis of the future of water resources of the Upper Danube. In GLOWA-Danube the impact of Climate Change of a broad range of sectors is investigated. Furthermore the project identifies and simulates strategies for adaptation to and mitigation of the consequences of Climate Change and tests their effectiveness. In GLOWA-Danube a team of researchers from different natural and socio-economic science disciplines work closely together in an interdisciplinary, university-based competence network since 2001.

At the Fourth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, held in Budapest in June 2004, ministers of health and environment from across the European Region committed their countries to updating their NEHAPs in the light of the outcomes of the Conference, which included an agreement to develop by 2007, action plans to protect children's health against environmental hazards.

The development of NEHAPs across Europe was first agreed in Helsinki in 1994, following the publication of the Environmental Health Action Plan for Europe (EHAPE), then in June 1999, environment and health ministers committed themselves to endorsing and strongly supporting the implementation of NEHAPs in the London Declaration, at the Third Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health.

By 2002, 43 countries had developed NEHAPs and were beginning to implement them.  NEHAPs are usually drawn up in cooperation with a wide range of partners, including professional and technical experts, national, regional and local authorities and nongovernmental organizations.

ETF7510 Occurence of extreme precipitation and drought in changing climatic conditions in Estonia: reasons of their formation, predictability, and their consequences of water regime of inland water bodies and on living nature
Global climate warming is clearly expressed in Estonia during the last decades. Mean surface air temperature has significantly increased, especially (...)
Global climate warming is clearly expressed in Estonia during the last decades. Mean surface air temperature has significantly increased, especially in winter and spring. Duration of snow cover and sea ice has remarkable decreased, the start of plant phenological phases in spring has shifted earlier by ca two weeks. Cyclonic activity has intensified and storminess has increased in winter season. Changes in precipitation regime are more unclear and they have been less studied. Extreme precipitations and droughts are one of the main climate risks in Estonia. The objective of this project proposal is to study this problem in more details.
