Here you will find continuously updated information on the environment. Environment policy is one of the EU's most successful areas of activity: thanks to EU environmental legislation we have for example made great progress in cleaning up the air and our rivers.

The challenges are enormous, but the EU has the instruments to make a difference in the battle for sustainable development. The Environment DG is one of 36 Directorates-General (DGs) and specialised services which make up the European Commission. Its main role is to initiate and define new environmental legislation and to ensure that measures, which have been agreed, are actually put into practice in the Member States.

The Irrigation & Water Engineering Group of the Wageningen University and Research Centre in The Netherlands is committed to understanding all there is to water in agriculture. Irrigation - from farm to watershed level - is our main focus. We argue that water flows do not only follow hydraulic laws. It is true that pumps and weirs can move it up and canals and pipes can guide it down. But ultimately, people determine where it flows and which users get what share. Our aim therefore is not only to understand the technical and ecological forces, but also the social forces that drive water use.

Landsat 7 Glacier Inventory Views: 9899
Rating: 1   [rate this resource] [report errors]

Glaciers and ice caps occupy about 10% of the Earth's continental area today. They interact with the atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere on time spans ranging from hours to millenia. Glaciers are, thus, key components of the Earth's environmental system. GAGE work group of the INQUA Commission on Glaciation was invited to submit glaciers and ice caps for consideration to include in the Landsat 7 global archive. These glaciers will be considered because of their potential for scientific studies on global change. Glaciers and ice caps have experienced negative mass balances and have been retreating since the end of the Little Ice Age in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This is a general condition for glaciers of all types in nearly all geographic locations, with the possible exception of Antarctica. The local timing of deglaciation may vary considerably, however, depending on many factors as detailed below.

World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) Views: 9911
Rating: 1   [rate this resource] [report errors]

The worldwide collection of information about ongoing glacier changes was initiated in 1894 with the foundation of the International Glacier Commission at the 6th International Geological Congress in Zürich, Switzerland. It was hoped that long-term glacier observations would give insight into processes of climatic change such as the formation of ice ages. Since then, the goals of international glacier monitoring have evolved and multiplied. Today, the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) collects standardized observations on changes in mass, volume, area and length of glaciers with time (glacier fluctuations), as well as statistical information on the distribution of perennial surface ice in space (glacier inventories). Such glacier fluctuation and inventory data are high priority key variables in climate system monitoring; they form a basis for hydrological modelling with respect to possible effects of atmospheric warming, and provide fundamental information in glaciology, glacial geomorphology and quaternary geology. The highest information density is found for the Alps and Scandinavia, where long and uninterrupted records are available.

Zonnewater (Dutch for Water from the Sun) is a world leader in production of fresh water with solar thermal energy.
