The optimization of forest management strategies on slopes endangered by landslides and rock falling – a methodology for forest-planting practices
- Grant Service of the company - Lesy České republiky (Forest of the Czech Republic)
Doc. Mgr. Aleš Bajer, Ph.D. (principal leader) Mendel University in Brno
Doc. RNDr. Karel Kirchner, CSc. (leader) Institute of Geonics of CAS.
- Period: 2015 - 2018
Project is aimed at optimization of forest management strategies on slopes endangered by landslides as well as with active manifestations of slope deformations and rock falling. A comprehensive assessment of the
possibility of forest-planting management interventions will be performed with respect to the areas affected by slope movements. Members of the Institute of Geonics will focus on the inventory of slope deformations (landslides and rock
falling) in selected sites, including their biogeographical characteristics. A links between vegetation and development of slope deformations in selected sites in the Czech Republic will be solved.
Integrated Spatial Planning, Land Use and Soil Management Research Action (INSPIRATION)
- Horizon 2020 - grant no. 681256
- Leader: Dr. Detlef Grimski (Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Berlin, Germany)
- National Focal Point for the Czech Republic: Mgr. Petr Klusáček, Ph.D.
- Period: 2015 - 2018
INSPIRATION is a coordination and support action funded by the European Commission in order to develop a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for Europe on soil, land use and land management.
Renewable Energy and Landscape Quality (RELY)
- TUD COST Action TU1401 (financed from the Horizon 2020 Programme)
- Chair of the Action: Prof. Michael Roth (Nuertingen-Geislingen University, Germany)
- RNDr. Bohumil Frantál, Ph.D. (Institute of Geonics CAS) - Management Committee Member, co-leader of the Working Group 2, Member of the Action Core Group
- Mgr. Stanislav Martinát, PhD. (Institute of Geonics CAS) – Management Committee Substitute
- Action Start Date: 2014-10-16, Action End Date: 2018-10-15
The aim of the COST Action is to investigate the inter-relationships between renewable energy production and landscape quality, and the role
of public participation for the acceptance of renewable energy systems. The Action should develop a better understanding of how landscape protection
and management, and renewable energy deployment can be reconciled to contribute socio-environmentally to the sustainable transformation of energy
systems, to consolidate and extend knowledge from a pan-European perspective, to enhance the science base for decision-making, and to develop
guidelines for public participation in planning renewable energy systems.
New methods for improving brownfields regeneration to optimize decision-making processes
- Technology Agency of the Czech Republic – No. TD020259
- Leaders: Mgr. Petr Klusáček, Ph.D. (Institute of Geonics CAS); Mgr. Marek Havlíček (The Silva Tarouca Research Institute for Landscape and Ornamental Gardening)
- Period: 2014 - 2015
The project aims at developing methods of optimization of decision-making processes for brownfields regeneration as a versatile tool used by state and local government, organization involved in regional development and
spatial planning, developers, brownfield site owners, or prospective tenants. New methods for verification, objectification and updating existing brownfields databases through the GIS will be developed as well.
Disaster management support scenarios using geo-information technologies
- Leaders: doc. RNDr. Jaromír
Kolejka , CSc. (Institute of Geonics CAS); doc. Ing. Petr Rapant, CSc. (Technical University of Ostrava)
- Ministry of Interior of Czech Republic – No. VG3VS/114
- Period: 2013 - 2015
The project is focused on scenarios for GI support of solutions for selected types of emergencies that occur in the CR. Individual selected scenarios (e.g. flood, forest fire,
toxic accidents on the road) will document the use of standard (topographic) and non-traditional (on natural components of territory, population and technical infrastructure) geodata,
their interpretation and purposeful generation of derivatives to support decision making in individual stages of coping with crisis situation.
