Integrated environmental monitoring at the municipal level - a conceptual outline; Integrerad miljoeoevervakning paa kommunal nivaa - en ideskiss

Technical Report:

Abstract

The purpose of this report is to show how an integrated environmental monitoring at the municipal level may make it possible to roughly quantify and analyze different mass- and energy flows. The present system for environmental monitoring is to some extent unsatisfactory. Integrated environmental monitoring is defined as `a coordinated quantifying, analysis and presentation of all mass- and energy flows in air, water and soil within a geographically confined area`. Kommunlaadan is a conceptual model for this integrated environmental monitoring, where the municipality has been chosen as the basis for the collection and handling of environmental data. This approach may prove advantageous because the municipality is both a geographically confined area and a political/administrative decision-making body. Furthermore, the collection and analysis of data can take place in a decentralized way. The collection and storage of data together with knowledge about environmental effects may constitute a basis for decisions and priorities made in the municipality. Data to be coordinated in the model is of different types; mass flows crossing the municipal borders; production within the municipality; accumulation of material within the municipality and the state of the environment. The basis for treatment and presentation of environmental data is an integrated analysis  More>>

Data to be coordinated in the model is of different types; mass flows crossing the municipal borders; production within the municipality; accumulation of material within the municipality and the state of the environment. The basis for treatment and presentation of environmental data is an integrated analysis of map information, point data and model-results in a geographical information system. The conceptual model can only be realised if it is built up by a number of sub-models, which can be integrated into a larger system. The information may then ideally be integrated into balances for mass- and energy flows at the provincial and national levels. 5 refs, 2 figs}
