An introduction to CRMD research centre
Author: Iuliana Armaș
Abstract: The center performs its activity within its Department (Faculty) of Geography, UB. Its aim is to increase the level of knowdledge in the field of Environmental Dynamics to solve current complex problems, involving an interdisciplinary approach. This objective is pursued by carrying out activities of fundamental (theoretical) research, but also of applied research. These are accomplished especially by developing skilled methodologies for spatial and temporal analysis of terrestrial and coastal systems, including in terms of natural hazards and risk resilience. An important aspect adresses the development of algorithms and GIS software for identifying and reducing the effects of vulnerability and risk that result from human environment interaction.
