Ecologically dangerous sources of pollution and problem areas of Upper Don river basin in Large Black Sea Region
The brief description of the project: Revealing of ecologically dangerous sources of pollution and map-making of problem areas in the Upper Don river basin. The basic directions of researches:
an estimation of the natural preconditions (the dynamics of climate, annual drain, processes of water erosion) and man-caused factors (agricultural development, urbanization, industrial - transport influence - polluted drains, river navigation, mining industry), , forming waters quality of the river Don and the river Don’s basin; definition of structure, volumes and periodicity of receipt of the polluting agents from the land in reservoirs of Upper Don river basin; the analysis of natural and man-caused risks, connected with global hydrometeorological changes, modern urbanization and intensive economic development (mining area of Kursk magnetic anomaly, Lipetsk mining and smelting area, agrarian-industrial Central Black Soil Region etc.); an estimation and map-making of risk zones for health of the Upper Don river basin population, caused by the water factor and comfort of residing in conditions of intensive man-caused pollutions of habitat.
Expected results: Сadastre of polluting agents sources of the Upper Don river basin; the electronic ecological atlas of the region with allocation of problem areas and description of natural factors and man-caused risks(in Mapinfo midst); the monitoring scheme of potentially dangerous objects of ecological risk in the territory of the Upper Don river basin; an estimation of influence on an environment of economic activity objects owing to agricultural development of grounds, urbanization, anthropogenous pollution of land waters; an estimation of change of an annual drain depending on regulated basin by artificial reservoirs; realization of the project will allow to define the basic directions in regional ecological politics for prevention of extreme situations and ecologically caused diseases of the population in coastal zones and tourist areas of Large Black Sea Region.
The countries of partners under the project: Austria, United Kingdom, Hungary, Germany, Greece, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Finland, France, Sweden
