  • Mapping Europe`s environmental future: understanding the impacts of global megatrends at the national level

    This report sets out the logic for identifying the implications of Global Mega Trends at the national, regional or European level, and aims to provide inspiration to EEA member and cooperating countries to undertake their own national studies. It describes the context and the reasons why understanding global trends is important, and sets out a suggested methodology for doing so. ...

  • Monitoring Gas Emissions from Volcanoes to Predict Volcanic Activity

    To understand and predict the behaviour of volcanoes an increasing number of scientists are combining geological monitoring and geochemical models. By measuring and monitoring the prevalence of gases like CO2, scientists hope to be able to better predict the likelihood of volcanic eruptions. In 2010 Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted, releasing 250 million ...

  • Using Electromagnetic induction to characterize soils - Case Study

    Electrical conductivity measurements have been used for years to determine salinity and moisture in soils. Probes were inserted directly into the soil to determine how well the soil conducted an applied current. This process was slow and labor-intensive and was usually reserved for scientific studies. A more recent technique for measuring conductivity is electromagnetic induction (EM), a ...

  • Digital Soil Mapping as a Support to Production of Functional Maps

    Numerous environmental and socio-economic models (risk assessment, scenario testing, etc.) require soil parameters as inputs to estimate and forecast changes in our future life conditions. However, the availability of soil data is limited on both national and European scales. Soil information (i) is either missing at the appropriate scale, (ii) its meaning is not well explained for reliable ...

  • Noise Mapping in Lille

    Lille, with a population of 1091 million inhabitants is the 4th largest agglomeration in France after Paris, Lyon, and Marseille. Situated at the heart of a network of 464 km motorways connecting six European cities (Brussels, Bonn, the Hague, London, Luxembourg and Paris), the metropolis of Lille also has the densest railway network of France after Paris. Pascal Thomas and his team of 8 ...

  • Solar exergy maps for photovoltaic/thermal systems

    In this paper, the thermal and electrical exergies and the exergy destructions are calculated for a photovoltaic thermal (PV/T) system based on solar exergy rates for some Indian climates namely Bangalore, Jodhpur, Mumbai, New Delhi and Srinagar for a year and for different US climates namely Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, Portland, San Antonio, San Francisco, Tucson and Tulsa for January, ...

  • A road map for emerging low-exergy HVAC systems

    An exergy-conscious life cycle costing algorithm was developed. This algorithm establishes a reference tool to compare conventional air conditioning systems with alternative HVAC systems, which can directly operate with low-exergy alternative energy resources. The cost of exergy waste in conventional heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems (HVAC) is included in terms of the difference ...

  • Mapping national innovation systems in the OECD area

    This paper focuses on the structure and organisation of innovative activities in selected OECD countries. Using the approach of national innovation systems as a conceptual framework and applying multivariate data analysis, this paper aims to add new insights into the specific structures of eighteen national innovation systems. A central result from this comparative study is a categorisation of ...

  • FPGA implementation of log-polar mapping

    Log-polar or spatially variant image representation is an important component of active vision system in tracking process for many robotic applications due to its data compression ability, faster sampling rates and hence, direct to faster image-processing speed in machine vision system. In this paper, we try to implement log-polar mapping techniques on Xilinx FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) ...

  • European Digital Archive of Soil Maps (EuDASM); Metadata of The Soil Maps of Asia

    The European Digital Archive of Soil Maps (EuDASM) was initiated by the MOSES (Monitoring the State of European Soil) action team members of the Soil and Waste Unit (SWU) in the Institute of Environment and Sustainability (IES), located at the Joint Research Centre (JRC), Italy in collaboration with ISRIC – World Information Centre, Wageninegen, The Netherlands to establish a global digital ...


  • Mapping sediment thickness case study

    Polk County, Florida Bathymetric and sub-bottom surveys were conducted within a clay settling pond at a Phosphate mine in Central Florida. Prior to the geophysical survey, a depression or slump had formed along the northern dam of the pond. The purpose of the study was to map various sediment layers within the pond to help determine if the depressions or slumps were related to sinkhole ...

  • Automatic mapping in emergency: a geostatistical perspective

    In the case of a severe nuclear accident, radionuclides may be released into the atmosphere and contaminate large areas. Radiological maps are obtained after converting local measurements into continuous information in space. Ideally, the mapping process should be fully automatic and provide information in real time. This paper is presenting the results obtained from two statistical exercises ...

  • Mapping Quality Assurance Requirements for Continuous Mercury Monitoring Systems

    The Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR) requires coal-fired electric power plants to install and operate mercury  continuous monitoring systems by December 31, 2008 such that they will have 12 months of “submittable” data by 1 January 2010. For all practical purposes, “submittable data” are “quality-assured data” that meet the extensive quality control requirements cited in the various regulations that ...
