Assessing flood risk: new foresight tool at cutting-edge of mitigation efforts

Παρ, 22/09/2017 - 11:07

The JRC has developed a new forecasting tool to help disaster responders prevent the worst impacts of floods.

The first of its kind in operation, the tool adds near real-time impact assessments to existing forecasts, allowing authorities to prepare and focus resources well ahead of potential floods.

Following extensive testing, it has now been integrated into the Copernicus European Flood Awareness System (EFAS).

Super-heatwaves of 55°C to emerge if global warming continues

Τετ, 09/08/2017 - 22:33

Heatwaves amplified by high humidity can reach above 40°C and may occur as often as every two years, leading to serious risks for human health. If global temperatures rise with 4°C, a new super heatwave of 55°C can hit regularly many parts of the world, including Europe.

Europe to be hit hard by climate-related disasters in the future

Δευ, 07/08/2017 - 21:10

Weather-related disasters could affect around two-thirds of the European population annually by the end of this century. This could result in a 50-fold increase in fatalities compared to today if no measures are taken, according to a new study by the Joint Research Centre – the science and knowledge service of the European Commission.

Study identifies land cover susceptible to change and soil resources most at risk

Δευ, 07/08/2017 - 21:09

The area of soils covered with trees and artificial surfaces is increasing in Europe, while arable land areas are declining. Sparsely vegetated areas are the most vulnerable to soil loss.

A study published in Nature Scientific Reports by scientists from the JRC, the UK’s Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) and the University of Melbourne provides a first roadmap for country-specific accounting of soil resources.

Important milestones towards the new European Smart Tachograph

Δευ, 07/08/2017 - 21:08

New Smart Tachograph security specifications have been prepared by the JRC for better enforcement of driving and resting times of heavy vehicle drivers to maximise road safety.

From 2019, all heavy vehicles must be equipped with a new Smart Tachograph, an improved version of the already existing digital tachograph which monitors and records the driving and resting times of professional drivers.

Culture and creativity help cities to thrive

Παρ, 07/07/2017 - 10:11

Today, the European Commission released the first ever edition of the ‘Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor’.

This new tool developed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) provides comparable data on how European cities perform across nine dimensions – covering culture and creativity – and underlines how their performance contributes to cities’ social development and economic growth and job creation.

Global erosivity map shows differences between climatic regions

Πέμ, 06/07/2017 - 10:37

The first ever global erosivity map gives new insights into the geography of the rain's impact on soil erosion. The underlying JRC research, published in the Nature Group's Scientific Reports, highlights differences between climatic regions and calls for global action to protect our soils.

Soil is our most important source of food. And yet, much of the world's soils are being eroded faster than they are formed.

Extreme weather conditions and climate change account for 40% of global wheat production variability

Πέμ, 06/07/2017 - 10:36

JRC scientists have proposed a new approach for identifying the impacts of climate change and extreme weather on the variability of global and regional wheat production. The study analysed the effect of heat and water anomalies on crop losses over a 30-year period.

JRC scientists studied the relative importance of heat stress and drought on wheat yields between 1980 and 2010. They developed a new Combined Stress Index in order to better understand the effects of concurrent heat and water stress events.

Improving knowledge and data on migration

Δευ, 26/06/2017 - 10:50

One year from its conception, the European Commission's Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography (KCMD) has made significant progress and has provided EU policymakers with valuable instruments to access information and data about migration.

On the 1-year anniversary of the KCMD, let's have a look at the main achievements and future plans of the Knowledge Centre, as well as at a new migration profile of Mali.

JRC mentoring scheme for refugee scientists

Τετ, 21/06/2017 - 09:17

In 2017, the JRC launched a pilot programme to welcome refugee scientists for one-week training programmes at the JRC. The objective of the programme is to introduce them to the European research context, which would allow them to pursue scientific activities in their field of expertise and to help them build up work experience, qualifications and contacts for future employment in Europe.

This scheme is in line with the efforts of the EU, academia and NGOs to help refugee scientists and researchers use their skills and experience to connect to other European researchers.

4 Vacancies at the Women in Science Excel (WISE) programme

Atlas of the Human Planet 2017 – how exposed are we to natural hazards?

Πέμ, 25/05/2017 - 09:38

One out of three people in the world is exposed to earthquakes, a number which almost doubled in the past 40 years. Around 1 billion in 155 countries are exposed to floods and 414 million live near one of the 220 most dangerous volcanoes. The 2017 edition of the JRC Atlas of the Human Planet looks at the exposure of people and built-up areas to the six major natural hazards, and its evolution over the last 40 years. The atlas will be presented during the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction meeting in Cancun, Mexico.
