Project Management


Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing, securing and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. It is sometimes conflated with program management, however technically that is actually a higher level construction: a group of related and somehow interdependent engineering projects.

Qvast: a New Quantum Gis Plugin for Estimating Volcanic Susceptibi...

By: A. Cappello; J. Martí; C. Del Negro; S. Bartolini

Description: Group of volcanology, (SIMGEO-UB) CSIC, Institute of Earth Sciences Jaume Almera, Barcelona, Spain. One of the most important tasks of modern volcanology is the construction of hazard maps simulating different eruptive scenarios that can be used in risk-based decision-making in land-use planning and emergency management. The first step in the quantitative assessment of volcanic hazards is the development of susceptibility maps, i.e. the spatial probabili...

Description: Graduate School of Science and Technology, Shizuoka University, Ohya 836, Shizuoka 422-8529, Japan. This study presents a unique database of 172 plagioclase Crystallographic Preferred Orientations (CPO) of variously deformed gabbroic rocks. The CPO characteristics as a function of the deformation regime (magmatic or crystal-plastic) are outlined and discussed. The studied samples are dominantly from slow- and fast-spread present-day ocean crust, as well ...

Design Impact and Significance of Non-stationarity of Variance in ...

By: J. J. O'Sullivan; A. O'Connor; M. Al Saji

Description: Earth Institute and School of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. Stationarity in hydro-meteorological records is often investigated through an assessment of the mean value of the tested parameter. This is arguably insufficient for capturing fully the non-stationarity signal, and parameter variance is an equally important indicator. This study applied the Mann-Kendall linear and Mann-Whitney-Wilcox...

Streamflow Predictions in Regulated River Systems: Hydrological No...

By: S. Kim; J. Hughes; J. Vaze; D. Dutta

Description: Land and Water Flagship, CSIRO, Canberra, Australia. Streamflow in a regulated river system is highly influenced by storage regulations and anthropogenic water use in addition to climate variability. Thus, changes in climate-streamflow relationships and dominant hydrological processes over time are difficult to quantify in a regulated system without partitioning influence of storage regulation and anthropogenic water uses. This requires a robust regulat...

By: M. Weber; M. Prasch; W. Mauser

Description: Department of Geography, LMU Munich, Germany. Water supply of most lowland cultures heavily depends on rain and melt-water from the upstream mountains. Especially melt-water release of alpine mountain ranges is usually attributed a pivotal role for the water supply of large downstream regions. Water scarcity is assumed as consequence of glacier shrinkage and possible disappearance due to Global Climate Change, particular for large parts of Central and S...
