  • Integrative environmental research and education

    This paper is based on the premise that without integration of knowledge across disciplines, without integration of research with education, and without dialogue between science and stakeholders, opportunities to bound the complexity of environmental processes will be missed. Without adequate integration, solutions to environmental challenges will be partial at best, and new problems and ...

  • Environmental research and development in nanotechnology

    Maintaining and improving soil, water, and air quality represent some of the most formidable challenges facing global society in the 21st century. Pollutants from such diverse sources as oil and chemical spills, pesticide and fertiliser runoff, abandoned industrial and mining sites, and airborne gaseous and particulate matter from automobiles exacerbate the situation on a daily basis. Detecting ...

  • Transport related environmental research in Austria

    This paper surveys the transport related environmental research carried out in Austria. To make results comparable at the European level, the following commonly agreed criteria are used for its classification: intrinsic characteristics (problem definition, policy strategies, theoretical assumptions, method, and data) and meta-characteristics (scientific innovation, and contribution to real ...

  • Research trends in resource and environmental management: a review of the literature

    Environmental and resource management have often been at odds with industrialisation and rapid economic growth and this is apparent when reviewing the cases of growing economies of China and India. This article reviews the literature and concludes that not only promoting effective natural resource management contributes to price stability, availability of products and long-term employment, but ...

  • Utilizing new technologies for bioindicator research. Environmental Bioindicators

    Endocrine acting compounds dispersed into the environment have been reported to adversely affect growth and reproduction of wildlife.Some of the compounds are industrial by-products, but evidence points to sewage treatment plants as a major source of these contaminants. Typically whole life studies with vertebrates and invertebrates are performed to determinate adverse health effects. ...

  • Towards use of grids in environmental research, management and policy

    The emerging technology of the grid will enable distributed "virtual organisations" to flexibly share resources including data, software, hardware and expertise. Potential applications in urban air quality illustrate that in addition to underpinning scientific research, grid technology can contribute strongly to environmental monitoring, decision-making and policy-making. Amongst factors that ...

  • National Occupational Standards for Environmental Monitors - Research Specialization NOS

    Environmental monitors (EMs) are individuals who observe the environment and the impacts of human and industrial activities, and communicate this information to various stakeholders. In this way, they may help to mitigate negative environmental impacts. In addition to the Core document, which contains the core skills needed for all EM careers, there are two areas of specialization for EMs: ...

  • Randomized controlled trials in environmental health research: ethical issues

    Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are becoming increasingly common in environmental health research. Like all studies involving human subjects, environmental health RCTs raise many ethical challenges, ranging from obtaining informed consent to minimizing risks to protecting privacy and confidentiality. One of the most important issues raised by these studies is whether it is ethical to withhold ...

  • Research as a tool for change?

    In many studies on environmental sustainability, research is combined with initiating action. This approach differs from the more traditional natural-sciences view of research. However, the potential problems of the action orientation are seldom reflected upon. The aim of this paper, is to discuss pitfalls as well as possibilities and to propose a methodology for action-oriented Environmental ...

  • Exploring the environmental information in sell-side analysts' research reports

    This study shows how environmental information is used by financial analysts when valuing companies. Unlike the previous studies on analysts' perceptions, we use content analysis to examine the actual use of environmental information in valuations. Research reports from large investment banks in the USA and Europe are collected. The sample consists of reports from two industries, oil and ...

  • IT sourcing: a research framework

    It is only during the past few years that the sourcing of IT has become an important issue for most organisations. Downsizing, the move to flatten organisations and the search for added flexibility, are cited as major reasons for this interest. Additionally, for the UK public sector, government pressure and legislative requirements have been instrumental in making many organisations consider ...

  • Rationale for researching on corporate environmental reporting behaviour in a developing country: the case of Kenya

    The purpose of this paper is to analyse the possibility of corporate environmental reporting (CER) in a developing country so as to present the possible factors encouraging as well as those inhibiting the practice. It responds to the observation of prior research that CER research in developing countries is rare and the conjecture that developing countries should concern themselves with ...
