CV of Fabrizio Cattani

Hi, My name is Fabrizio Cattani and I'm at the second and last year of the master degree in Management at the University of Trento, Italy. I write on this forum in order to ask if someone is interested in a traineeship in Iceland or in another EU country of three or four months or if someone knows some firms that could be interested.
My master degree is specialized in tourism and environment: in particular I study management and economic evaluation of natural resources and environmental economics. Moreover I am also interested in renewable resources, in fact I graduated in 2013 with a graduate work in which I analysed the italian regulations regarding subsidies for renewable energy.
It's for these reasons I think that in Iceland I could gain very useful capabilities in the sector of renewable energy, which has already developed thanks to hydroelectric and geothermal power.
You will find enclosed my CV.

Air Pollution Severity set to worsen in Liverpool, UK

An Experimental traffic order was put in place in 28th October 2013 in Liverpool for bus lanes to be suspended. As outlined within attached document the Local Authority have proposed that the Experimental traffic orders are to be made permanent despite the following being revealed:-
• Now the review indicates pollution based around 41% of removed bus lanes to have increased, most significantly in 11%.
• Many lane removal recommendations seem arbitrary, in the face of working to expected standards. Indeed some bus lane suspensions have led to increased journey times for BOTH buses and general traffic journeys (e.g. Wavetree, Childwall Valley), yet these lanes are to be removed!
• How will the longer bus journey times benefit bus users’ journeys to work, especially for the 47% of Liverpool households who have no access to a car?
• The local authority document states "A reduction in congestion levels and the free flow of traffic on the City’s highway network promotes positive impact on air quality". However the document fails to address the likely impact of rising car motor traffic due to bus journeys being less competitive with car journeys.
• Recently Public Health England released statistics which reveal that in just one year 239 people in Liverpool died because of air pollution.
• It is well established that the best way to address air pollution is to improve public transport, plus a significant increase in the numbers of people cycling and walking.”
• The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transports described the trial removal of bus lanes as an “ill considered experiment”.
• Many of the bus lanes were installed using contributions from grants from the EU with the purpose of reducing air pollution.
• Air pollution monitoring stations were moved shortly before the experimental traffic order was implemented in 2013. I am therefore concerned that the public in Liverpool is being exposed to increasingly unsafe air pollution, which will not be addressed as air quality data is not available.

My Questions are as follows:-
1. Are you able to offer any advice on who we should address our concerns to? We have addressed our concerns to the local authority, but they are not prepared to listen.
2. Do you share our concerns that air quality monitoring is inadequate in Liverpool?
3. Is Liverpool Local Authority likely to be fined by the EU if air pollution levels worsen?
4. Will Liverpool Local Authority be made to pay back money to the EU following removal of public transport infrastructure that was installed to reduce air pollution?

Airport OmissionLUZ Barcelona intersected with CLC

Good Afternoon, I have intersected the CLC inventories for 1990, 2000 and 2006 with LUZ' boundaries (2009) for the city of Barcelona (LUZ code: ES002L). However, CLC code 124 (airports) is missing in year 2000; examination of the maps obtained in ArcGIS (see attachment) shows that the polygon has been omitted. Why is it so? I'll be waiting for your kind comments. KR, sofia p.

Corine Land Cover surveys Comparison

Good evening, I am comparing land use data in Barcelona and Milan by using CLC1990, CLC2000 and CLC2006 at NUTS3 level (NUTS3 codes: Barcelona= ES511; Milan= ITC4C). However, as you can see from the attached table, as the CLC2000 inventory sets the total area, the totals are underestimated (85,4% and 42% for Barcelona and Milan provinces, respectively). Can the EEA make some comments regarding such results? Thank you very much, sofia p.

NUTS3: some discrepancies in codes

Good Morning! I am using the dataset in the attachment that EEA sent me a couple of years ago. It is about CLC2000 and 2006 crossed with NUTS3. However, some NUTS3 codes (e.g. Milan, Italy) differ from the ones used in the "NUTS_2010" file I downloaded from the EEA website (http://ec.europa.eu/eurosta[…]S_33&StrLanguageCode=EN). I'd need a table which would link and list the different NUTS3 codes used in the file I have and the current NUTS3 classification. Thank you very much, sofia p.

1990 Corine data in excel

Hello,
Some months ago (February 2012) I have sent an email to EEA regarding Corine Land Cover data for my thesis corresponding with Vibeke Arildsen; I've received the attached file for 2000-2006 changes. Since then, I have been asking for a similar file but with 1990 CLC data. Despite my ensuing emails, I have never got a reply and I wonder if through this forum you can help me out.

Thanks a lot,
sofia p.

CORINE discontinuous artificial areas

Good morning,
I have some doubts regarding the class description on the following attached file (p. 102). It states that:
"These units consist of blocks of flats, individual houses, gardens, streets and parks, each of these elements having a surface area of less than 25 ha. (...) Buildings, roads and artificially surfaced areas cover between 50 and 80% of the total surface area of the unit."

My questions are:
1) So which is the approximated detail area in ha. which surfaces have been mappen with?
2) What about the buildings, roads and artificially surfaced areas below 50% of soil occupation?

It would be great if you could suggest me also some EEA references where these issues are addressed.

Thank you very much
sofia p.
