Fires and the Water Cycle: Impacts and Management

Universidade de Aveiro

Fires can have severe impacts on water quality. Fires disturb vegetation cover, create an ash layer rich in potential contaminants, and increase contaminant mobilisation by enhancing runoff and erosion. This may lead to the contamination of surface and groundwater resources with suspended sediments, metals, organic compounds and nutrients. While many of the potential impacts are known, key knowledge gaps remain on their probability of occurrence, magnitude, and longevity. Overcoming these gaps is essential to support decision-makers in addressing these risks.

This session will join together researchers and managers from several European countries to discuss our current understanding of the impacts of fire on water quality, and available solutions to mitigate these impacts.

Register in until 14 February

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.

The goal of this course is to provide participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including its ecological and social aspects.
