Final Report - RAMWASS (Integrated decision support system for risk assessment and management of the water-sediment-soil system at river basin scale in fluvial ecosystems)

Project ID: 37081
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

Wetlands and aquatic ecosystems adjacent to river basin areas are notably sensitive in global changes and human activities, resulting in severe impacts in cases of ecologic accidents.

The RAMWASS project, funded by the European Commission, aimed to develop a decision support system (DSS) to facilitate prevention, mitigation and remediation of fluvial ecosystems' hazards. The DSS modelled the water, sediment and soil (WASS) system and contributed to risk assessment and management by public administrators and emergency services.

This document outlines the project objectives and provides an overview of the DSS structure. Moreover, it presents the collaborating parties and the selected test sites. Finally, the report summarises RAMWASS major achievements and pinpoints the undertaken dissemination activities.
