Titre : Characterisation of the aridity processes on Mediterranean Europe. Protection and management guidelines

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : ENV4950062 FP4-ENV 2C

Durée : From 1996-02-01 to 1999-07-31

Descriptif
The main objective is to characterize the landscape evolution in the different european mediterranean areas with a special attention given to the definition of strategies for the recuperation of areas subdued to desertification processes. The work will focus on the establishment of criteria for Mediterranean landscapes management based on the trends observed in long-term environmental changes. The research will be developed according to the following points : Territorial and chronological characterisation of the bioclimatic evolution in the critical areas ; evaluation of the vulnerability of the vegetal landscape ; obtention of action guidelines with regard to the protection of recoverable areas ; establishment of optimisation patterns of the natural values of the landscape in relation with the confluence of bioecological, geomorphological patterns and human activities. In order to accomplish the purposed objectives, the obtention of sedimentary sequences in the critical areas is proposed. Holocene sediments from mediterranean zones in Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece and North Africa will be investigated.
