  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Environmental Science in China − Research Progress

    Over the last 20 years, China has been experiencing rapid economic growth, which has resulted in heavy environmental pollution nationwide. Environmental pollution poses risks to human and ecosystem health and limits the industrial and trade growth, thus becoming a major obstacle for China’s sustainable development in the new century. Recently, the Chinese central government has adopted a ...


  • Impact of science and technology on energy and environmental research and development

    Countries are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of science and technology in relation to national development and the necessity of formulating a concise science and technology policy. The need for strengthening and orienting the scientific and technological infrastructure in line with national development goals, through more effective use of available qualified manpower and the higher ...

    This guide profiles environmental R&D centres of expertise in the UK. It is produced by UK Trade & Investment’s Environmental Industries Sector Unit (EISU). EISU has responsibility for promoting and supporting the UK environmental industry capabilities overseas. Research and development is an important element within the environmental goods and services market. The UK has a strong track record in ...


  • Environmental Sensing and Monitoring Market Global Research 2018

    Environmental sensors are devices that detect the changes that take place in the environment such as change in humidity and temperature. Rapid population growth, industrialization, and agricultural activities have led to the deterioration of air, soil, and water quality levels over the decades, thereby affecting the biological life and ecosystem. Environmental sensing and monitoring ...


  • 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 ...

  • Commentary: regional environmental management systems: lessons and challenges for industrial ecology research

    Industrial ecology has made a major contribution to the tools of corporate environmental management over the last ten years. However, it is argued that most of that contribution has been at the level of products and individual firms. It is argued that if the concept of industrial ecology is to be developed in a way that attracts public policy attention then it will have to demonstrate greater ...

  • 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 ...
