Agronomic and Environmental Aspects of the Cultivation of Transgenic Herbicide Resistant Plants


It it generally accepted in the international field of risk assessment research that the effects of transgenic organisms have to be assessed ‘case by case‘ and ‘step by step‘. While most physiological effects can be studied in laboratory and greenhouse, ecological, agronomic and economic effects are partly only assessable in field tests or commercial growing and by modelling. Information on these...read more

Determination and Evaluation of Ambient Air Quality

- Manual of Ambient Air Monitoring in Germany -

Third revised Edition

Measurement of air pollution emissions and ambient air quality is an essential instrument for air quality evaluation and control. In such measurements, pollutants are registered both at their place of origin (emissions) and at the place where they may affect people and/or the environment (immissions1). Both types of measurement complement each other and are essential for the implementation of air...read more

Development of a Test Method for an Investigation into Limiting the Emissions from Printers and Copiers within the Framework of Assigning the Environmental Label


The emission behaviour with regard to dust, ozone and ⁠VOC⁠ (TVOC) of nine different hardcopy devices in combination with suitable air sampling and analysis procedures was investigated in different emission test chambers (two different 1 m³ - chambers and one 20 m³ - chamber). Air sampling and analysis for VOC were done by means of Tenax TA and subsequent thermal desorption (TDS) in...read more

Emissions trading in international civil aviation


According to estimates of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), international aviation contributes about 3.5% to global warming.1 If growth in aviation volume continues at the same rate as in the 1990s, when international aviation grew 4% annually, the contribution of international aviation to the greenhouse effect could, already in 2010, be higher than Germany's contribution to gl...read more

The Polluter Pays Principle under WTO Law: The Case of National Energy Policy Instruments


This study addresses the compatibility of the Polluter Pays Principle (PPP) with obligations under world trade law as administered by the World Trade Organization (WTO). In particular we look at the instruments of German domestic and international energy policy. The Polluter Pays Principle The PPP is an environmental policy guideline stipulating that the costs of pollution prevention and control s...read more

Synopsis of system approaches to environmental research - German contribution to ecosystem management


In order to enable the conceivement and enforcement of efficient measures for environmental precaution and protection, it is necessary to undertake an environmental systems analysis. Against the background of this assumption, a concept for a federal ecosystem research program has been initiated by the Federal Ministry of the Interior in 1978. Cooperating on this project was the Federal Ministry of...read more

Nutrient Emissions into River Basins of Germany on the Basis of a Harmonized Procedure


The model MONERIS (MOdelling Nutrient Emissions in RIver Systems) was developed and applied to estimate the nutrient emissions into river basins of Germany by point sources and various diffuse pathways. The model is based on data of river flow and water quality as well as a geographical information system (GIS), which includes digital maps and extensive statistical information.
