In order to highlight the main results obtained under the Nucleu Program, the following representative projects are briefly presented:
PN 09060365 The research theme approached the development of numerical models (using Delft 3D and HEC-RAS) for the Epuraşu Danube branch that will be used as reference point for a subsequent hydraulic modeling process that will comprise the Danube River between Baziaş and Moldova Nouă; the sediment transport processes were estimated using maps and cross-sectional and longitudinal profiles.
PN 09060112.1 The use of numerical modeling in the testing of different scenarios with real applicability conditions in the Bala – Old Danube confluence area.
PN 09060245.2 Center for Excellence on Green / Renewable Energy with Integrated Installations.
PN 09060122 Following the research conducted in one of the 2015 project phases using the numerical modeling of the pollutants dispersion into the atmosphere, it arose the need to undertake measures for greening the entire study area; there have been proposed greening options of the areas related to the tailings ponds in Moldova Noua.
PN 09060238 and PN 09060239 approached in several project phases the development and improvement of the multi-parametric quality index of aquatic ecosystems algorithm and have highlighted the weight assignment method and the rate extraction approach for a predefined set of indicators set for evaluation. So far, this theme’s topic has been distributed in scientific environments by inclusion in doctoral studies, conferences participation and publication of articles in specialized journals.
PN 09060366 The project aimed to research wild sturgeons monitoring in Romania from a conserving species and habitats point of view. The work highlighted the breeding habitats monitoring by carrying out field measurements and water samples sampling, identification of possible influences of hydrological and hydro chemical factors on the reproductive behavior of sturgeons.
The research works carried out during 2009-2015 led to their capitalization by presenting the obtained results at conferences, symposiums, workshops (about 119 scientific events) out of which 30 ISI papers were published. Two patents have been certified and two specialized books have been published. Patent No. A / 00773/2012 DKTB ICHTYOFAUNA MONITORING STATION, ESPECIALLY STURGEONS, THROUGH REMOTE SENSING, WITH ULTRASONIC TAGS IN DIFFERENT HYDROLOGICAL CONDITIONS obtained the gold medal in Brussels, 2015.
Nucleu Program research results were submitted for their capitalization to the Ministry of Environment and Forests and the Ministry of Regional Development and Tourism, as well as to the private sector. It is noted that many of the research results were also presented at the international conferences organized by the Balkan Environment Association, BENA, where awards were given for the presented works.
As stated before, the research work has been carried out by young researchers with the permanent support of experienced management and researchers, reflecting the special attention given to the guidance and training of young researchers.
