INTEGRAL ASSESSMENT OF THE ECOLOGICAL CONDITION OF URBANIZED AREAS

V.A. Rybak

Abstract


A new technique of integrated assessment of ecological conditions in the example of the city of Mogilev is described. Available indicators of the conditions/presence as components that are taken into account are suggested the following: air, soil cover, water resources, green areas, noise and vibration, ionizing radiation, and the volume of waste. A new technique that is based on the identified priority components that are required for accounting is proposed for the aggregation into a single integrated assessment. This technique is a clear problem-oriented in nature, aimed at identifying areas of increased tension. It provides a basis for developing adequate environmental measures. It is worth noting that the estimates received are deprived of a number of shortcomings inherent in other techniques.
