Weight-of-evidence in Environmental Assessment


Short description / Objective

Our aim is to apply and develop tools to the characterization, integration and management of sediment and dredged material. Use of mathematical tools in sediment quality classification and assessment. In particular, we develop lines of evidence as input of Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) risk assessment, in a context where strategies to mitigate the climate change require international cooperation.
