Learning outcomes This course aims to analyze the main environmental impacts associated with engineering works and propose the necessary measures to minimize their negative effects on the environment, as well as to demonstrate the usefulness of GIS tools in this area of ??knowledge. At the end of the course students should have acquired the following competencies, as well as the ability to autonomously deepen them:
a) Recognition of the environmental consequences of the construction, operation and deactivation of engineering works;
b) Understanding the different phases of the EIA process and the EIA components;
c) Understanding the potential of GIS tools for the assessment of environmental impacts and for environmental monitoring.
Syllabus 1. ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY
Environmental problems resulting from the construction of engineering works. Evolution of the environmental
policy. Principles and objectives of the sustainable development. Sustainability indicators. Use of GIS tools in environmental management.
2. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (AIA)
The AIA process. Phases of the AIA. Methodologies and evaluation techniques. Scoping.
Public participation. Environmental Impact Statement. Post-evaluation.
3. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDIES (EIA)
Structure and components of the EIA. Forecasting methodologies of environmental impacts using GIS tools.
Environmental monitoring techniques using GIS.
