    Underwater images usually suffer from poor visibility, lack of contrast and colour casting, mainly due to light absorption and scattering. In literature, there are many algorithms aimed to enhance the quality of underwater images through different approaches. Our purpose was to identify an algorithm that performs well in different environmental by: 8. Environments (ISSN ) is an international and cross-disciplinary scholarly, open access journal focusing on the advances, issues and challenges related to environmental systems. Our aim is to encourage scientists and engineers to publish their experimental, theoretical, novel practical results in a variety of areas that range from.

    This book aims to gather a collection of papers dealing with several different problems arising from many disciplines and some modern mathematical approaches to handle them. In this respect, the book offers a wide overview on many of the current trends in Mathematics as valuable formal techniques in capturing and exploiting the complexity. Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Federal agencies prepare EISs for major actions that can have a significant effect on environmental quality, such as a mining operation. EPA can comment on EISs developed by other agencies but cannot compel other agencies to address EPA concerns during the EIS and permitting process.

    “This book systematically investigates the philosophical foundations of sustainable development in the context of the history of environmental policy. Given the failures and inadequacies of many past policies, Norton proposes effective strategies for sustainable policy choices based on heuristic decision models. Written by international experts and young researchers assembled under one roof, this volume reflects state of the art research from a variety of scientific fields and disciplines where complexity theory and synergetics are important or even indispensable tools today and in the future.

Rose (, p. ) hence emphasizes the inherent uniqueness of policies, arguing that a policy that functions only under specific environmental conditions cannot necessarily be transferred.

Updated in its seventh edition, The Environmental Policy Paradox provides an introduction to the policy-making process in the United States with regard to air, water, land use, agriculture, energy, and waste disposal, while introducing readers to both global and international environmental issues and institutions.

The text explains why some environmental ideas shape policy while Cited by: Conditions can include bonds or other securities, independent environmental auditing and compliance monitoring. Compliance monitoring and auditing The Department closely monitors projects referred and approved under the EPBC Act to ensure compliance with approval conditions as well as compliance with other decisions involving environmental.

Introduction. Transportation and other infrastructure projects require multiple Federal permits and reviews, including reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act of (NEPA), to ensure that projects are built in a safe and responsible manner and that adverse impacts to the environment and communities are avoided, minimized, and mitigated.

Debates around policy are often among those with fundamentally different values, and the way that problems and solutions are defined plays a central role in shaping how those values are translated into policy. The Environmental Case captures the real-world complexity of creating environmental policy, and this much-anticipated Fourth Edition /5(25).

Presentation of techniques that can be used broadly allows readers to apply what they learn in settings including business, finance, health care, environmental policy, security, and other settings where consequential decisions are made under conditions of uncertainty and complexity.

New Tools for Environmental Protection: Education, Information, it is important to point out that normative beliefs are more likely to lead to behavior under a specified set of conditions.

A large body of social psychological research on conformity suggests that beliefs about the behavior of others are more likely to influence our own. Conditions that Influence Decison Making All managers make decisions under each condition, but risk and uncertainty are common to the more complex and unstructured problems faced by top managers.

Decisions are made under the condition of certainty when the manager has perfect knowledge of all the information needed to make a decision.

Environmental Policy Environmental policy for military operations (by a troop contributing nation, UN, NATO, or other) is typically characterized by a code of environmental stewardship or principles for environmental protection which often 1 Training requirements are discussed in greater detail in Chapters 3 and 4.

Fortunately, environmental management programs is a subject much written about. To begin with, the discussion in the counterpart section of Chapter 2 (page 45) covers many practical matters related to this element of ISO Table 5 of Chapter 2 (page 48) offers summary models of different types of environmental management programs for different types of environmental.

Information policy is the set of all public laws, regulations and policies that encourage, discourage, or regulate the creation, use, storage, access, and communication and dissemination of information. It thus encompasses any other decision-making practice with society-wide constitutive efforts that involve the flow of information and how it is processed.

Policy instrument is a linkage between policy formulation and policy implementation. The intention in policy formulation is reflected in policy implementation through instrument.

Policy instruments are often known as governing tools as well, particularly when they are applied with all conditions associated to them. Complexity characterises the behaviour of a system or model whose components interact in multiple ways and follow local rules, meaning there is no reasonable higher instruction to define the various possible interactions.

The term is generally used to characterize something with many parts where those parts interact with each other in multiple ways, culminating in a higher order. Structural complexity: choices affect phenomena that operate at multiple scales; decision-making entities also exist at multiple scales, not necessarily matched to those of the phenomena; and many different kinds of expertise are required to understand the issues.

Multiple, conflicting, and uncertain values: people affected by the choices have deeply held values often tied to spiritual. The complex and multidisciplinary nature of environmental problems requires that they are dealt with in an integrated manner.

Modeling and software have become key instruments used to promote sustainability and improve environmental decision processes, especially through systematic integration of various knowledge and data and their ability to foster learning and.

Sustainable Development Goals Connectivity Dilemma: Land and Geospatial Information for Urban and Rural Resilience is an essential reference for researchers, industry professionals, and postgraduate students in fields such as geomatics, land administration, urban planning, GIS, and sustainable development.

It will also prove a vital resource Author: Abbas Rajabifard. Based on this theoretical frame, the book applies the ideas and tools from complexity science, contingency and enabling conditions to account for events in the formulation of treaties/agreements between disputing riparian states in river basins across the world (Indus, Jordan, Nile, Ganges, Brahmaputra, Colorado, Danube, Senegal and Zayandehrud).

Decision-making in environmental health policy is a complex procedure even in well-known conditions. Thus, in the case of uncertainty, decision-making becomes a hurdle race. We address scientific uncertainty, methods to reduce uncertainty, biomedical doubt and science communication, and the role of stakeholders, activists, lobbies and media that together Cited by: 1.Dr.
