Evaluation and network of ec-decision support systems in the field of hydrological dispersion models and of aquatic radioecological research

Objective

Several computerised Decision Support Systems (DSS) have been developed for the management of contaminated fresh water environments.

The objectives of the proposed network are:
a) to review and assess the DSSs to ensure that they comply with expectations and needs of potential users;
b) to identify and classify the approaches of the different DSSs;
c) to define their application domains;
d) to synthesise the experience gained for improving the DSSs and for the rational utilisation of the existing products.

The DSSs will be assessed by inter-comparison and testing in view of the needs of the user community. User groups and experts from environmental protection agencies and administrations and from the international scientific community will be involved in DSS exercises. Recommendations for the improvement and the rationale of the DSSs and of their components (models, methodologies, software products) will be supplied to provide the end-users with easy to use and reliable tools for the environmental management.

During the IV EC framework programme, several projects focused on developing computerised Decision Support Systems (DSS) for the management of contaminated fresh water environments.

These DSSs have been, in most cases, implemented in computer codes based on:
a) Models to predict radionuclide behaviour in the aquatic environment;
b) Methodologies for the assessments of the economic, social and ecological impacts of both contamination and remedial measures.

The objectives of the proposed network are:
a) to review and assess the DSSs to ensure that they comply with expectations and needs of potential users;
b) to identify and classify the approaches of the different DSSs;
c) to define their application domains;
d) to synthesise the experience gained for improving the DSSs and for the rational usage of the existing products for applications throughout Europe.
