Environmental risk assessment in environmental impact assessment The concepts of risk assessment and risk management are applied in a wide range of professions and disciplines.

ERA is one regular application. ERA within an EIA context is the use of risk assessment methods and risk management procedures to identify and respond to ecological. principles into environmental decision-making.

It includes the use of several environmental assessment and management tools that are appropriate for the various levels of decision-making.

The overall aim of this document series is to provide general information on techniques, tools and processes for environmental assessment and management. Summary: An important guide to assessing and managing the environment from a landscape perspective.

Ecological relationships are nested within the landscape. Identifying the relevant spatial and temporal scales is critical for an effective understanding of ecological functions that human societies depend upon. Environmental Monitoring and Assessment discusses technical developments and data arising from environmental monitoring and assessment, principles in the design of monitoring systems, and the use of monitoring data in assessing the consequences of natural resource management and pollution risks.

Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management (IEAM) is published six times a year by the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). The journal is devoted to bridging the gap between scientific research and the application of science in decision making, policy and regulation, and environmental management.

"This book deals with environment and human risk problems caused by contamination that have occurred and that are still ongoing. For professionals in the field, seriously involved in remediation efforts, this volume provides a detailed set of procedures to analyse the scientific consequences of environmental problems.

Introduction. Risk is broadly defined as the likelihood that a harmful consequence will occur as the result of an action or condition. It involves the combined evaluation of hazards and exposure. Environmental risk assessment (ERA) deals with the interactions of agents or hazards, humans, and ecological resources.
