Reinforced Vegetation Numerical Evaluation of Slopes (REVENUES)

Date du début: 1 janv. 2013, Date de fin: 31 déc. 2016,

Vegetation acts as a reinforcement for slopes due to the penetration of roots into the ground. Roots penetration is a time dependent phenomenon that is strongly connected to the hydrogeological condition of the slope and that interacts with soil properties. Roots reinforcement of soil is well documented and numerous formulae exist in literature. The reinforcement action is provided by roots penetr ...

Fostering European Drought Research and Science-Policy Interfacing (DROUGHT-R&SPI)

Date du début: 1 oct. 2011, Date de fin: 31 mars 2015,

The project will reduce future Europe’s vulnerability and risk to drought by innovative in-depth studies that combine drought investigations in six case study areas in water-stressed regions (river basin and national scale) with drought analyses at the pan-European scale. Knowledge transfer across these scales is paramount because vulnerability is context-specific (e.g. physical, environmental, so ...
