Putin clears the way for Russia to ratify Kyoto.. Politicians, industry leaders and environment groups across the world welcomed the news last week that Russia had rejuvenated international efforts to combat climate change by moving towards ratification of the Kyoto protocol.. President Vladimir Putin's decision isolates the United States, and brings Russia closer economic and political ties with the EU.. The treaty, which commits 30 industrialised countries to legally binding greenhouse gas reduction targets, will kickstart a multibillion-dollar carbon trading market, boost the transfer of clean technologies to developing nations and promote joint ventures with countries in the former Soviet bloc.. It is a blow to President George Bush, who repudi ated the treaty on taking office and tried to persuade Mr Putin to do the same.. Russia's move means that US business will be cut out of the new carbon trading markets set up in London.. Countries and companies in the scheme have targets to cut carbon dioxide emissions.. If they exceed their targets, they can sell the extra carbon saved to other countries or companies that have failed to do so.. The market is expected to be worth tens of billions a year.. Carbon trading and incentives to install renewables and other clean technologies in the treaty give European companies a financial advantage in joint trading agreements with former eastern bloc and developing countries.. Because of the collapse of Russia's economy in the early 1990s, London traders estimated that Mr Putin's government has $10bn of carbon credits to sell on the international markets to countries that cannot meet their own targets.. International excitement about Kyoto began after the Russian cabinet announced that it had prepared the papers to ratify the treaty and was forwarding them to the Russian parliament, or Duma, for ratification.. Since Mr Putin's United Russia party controls two-thirds of the Duma, and he directed the cabinet to act, ratification is seen as a virtual certainty.. Outlook article.. pdf, 663 KB).. High and Dry..

In the floods of the stream Diakoniaris, which crosses Patras, two people were reported lost.. High damages in houses and shops in the central part of Patras have been reported.. The northern airports of the country remained closed for at least 2 days and ships remained in ports due to high wind over Aegean.. EXTREME WEATHER PHENOMENA OVER GREECE.. The long lasting persistent Ω - blocking system in the upper atmosphere ( 500 HPA ) over Europe caused intense weather phenomena in Greece, as heavy rainfall, thunderstorms mainly over sea, snowfall over mainland as well as extremely low temperatures..

FLOODS IN AEGEAN ISLANDS (GREECE).. Extreme weather conditions have been reported in the area of Aegean over the period 28, 29 and 30 of November.. Samos, Ikaria, Naxos, Rhodes and other islands were hit by heavy rainfall events.. Significant Rainfall Amount Over Samos Island.. A low pressure system in the upper atmosphere from W parts of Greece moving rapidly eastwards (28, 29 November 2001) caused serious amount of rainfall over east Aegean Greek islands, mainly Samos island.. Probably due to orographic effect (Kerketefs mountain, halt.. 1450 m) high rainfall amount has been recorded in the met.. station at Samos airport..

Schools remained close on Samos on Friday in the aftermath of the worst floods to have hit the eastern Aegean island in decades.. Hundreds of houses and shops were flooded on Thursday, following torrential rain.. Opposition leader Costas Karamanlis visited the island, as well as Aegean Minister Nikos Sifounakis, who promised financial aid for flood victims.. FLOODS IN ATTICA (GREECE).. Extreme rainfall depth (more than 220 mm in some areas) within the period of three consecutive days 2, 3 and 4 November (about 72 hours) was recorded in Attica (greece) causing floods in many parts of the region.. Two people died and severe losses of property were reported mainly in the eastern part of the region.. The main causes of these damaging floods are due to the extreme total rainfall depth with return period well above 50 years.. The maximum rainfall depth for 24 hour duration was more than 80 mm corresponding to a return period of about 30 years.. According to scientists, the damages were kept rather low due to the small uniform intensity of rainfall and the high infiltrability of the soil resulting from a long lasting drought.. The flood risk in various areas of Attica is rather high due to the high inperviousness of large parts (urbanisation) of the area.. On top of that some severe fires destroyed substantial parts of forests on the mountains around Athens during the last decade..

Title: IAHS Descriptive info: Introducing IAHS.. The International Association of Hydrological Sciences.. Starting point.. From its launch in 1922, the activities of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences have helped to solve the pressing problems of water resources existing in many parts of the world.. This Association -the oldest and most distinguished international learned society in the water field-.. serves the needs of humanity through the promotion of science and the stimulation of its applications.. IAHS has accomplished this by acting as a catalyst for international cooperation and sound management in the development and use of water resources.. Basic to these endeavours is the pursuit of the science of hydrology.. This is the science which “.. deals with the waters above and below the land surfaces of the Earth, their occurrence, circulation and distribution, both in space and time, their biological, chemical and physical properties, their reaction with the environment, including their relations to living things.. The forums of the Association provide for discussion, comparison and publication of the results of research, and initiate, facilitate and coordinate research into those hydrological problems that require international cooperation.. They offer a firm scientific basis for the optimal use of water resources systems.. This includes educational outreach and the transfer of knowledge on planning, engineering, management and the economic aspects of applied hydrology and water resources.. In a changing world, where diminishing water resources and the hazards of floods, droughts and pollution play an ever increasing role, what could be more important than to improve and disseminate knowledge and understanding of these fields through the science of hydrology?.. IAHS today.. IAHS is a nonprofit-making non-governmental scientific organisation dedicated to the improvement of the well-being of every man, woman and child on this planet through the motivation of the community of scientists and engineers involved in the study and application of hydrology and water resources.. The Association is widely known for the vitality of its activities, particularly for its scientific meetings -assemblies, symposia and workshops- and for its publications and research projects.. It now has a membership of over 3700 globally, drawn from 129 countries.. As there is no membership fee (unlike most other scientific bodies), the Association is accessible to any professionally-interested person worldwide, including many in developing countries and in those countries where the economy is in transition.. But IAHS is not a rich organisation: it has no dedicated benefactors.. Its main source of income comes from the sales of its publications:.. Hydrological Sciences Journal.. , the proceedings of symposia, and special publications, to libraries, IAHS members and.. other.. interested parties, worldwide.. Governance.. The Association is run for its members by its members.. Every four years there are elections at the General Assembly for the honorary officers of the Association, elections which are conducted in a fair and open fashion, in accordance with its Statutes and Bylaws.. The President, Secretary General, Treasurer, Editor and other officers of the Association form the Bureau, which manages the affairs of IAHS between General Assemblies.. IAHS is one of seven autonomous bodies that together make up the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) founded in 1919.. IUGG is one of the members of the International Council for Science (formerly ICSU) with its secretariat in Paris.. The Association is a leading member of the International Water Associations Liaison Committee, the committee established to bring together the dozen or so water-orientated international non-governmental organisations.. IAHS is an elected member of the World Water Council Board of Governors and collaborates closely with UNESCO, WMO and IAEA through their respective programmes in water.. This collaboration, in the case of UNESCO, WMO and IAEA, dates back to the 1960s: IAHS was one of the founders of the International Hydrological Decade (1965-1974) that led to the current International Hydrological Programme in UNESCO.. These different links provide a wider stage over which the Association operates, the links to the agencies of the United Nations being particularly important.. Scientific Commissions.. The activities of the Association are initiated primarily by its nine Scientific Commissions, which deal either with specific aspects of hydrology or with themes that cut across several or all aspects of hydrology.. They are the International Commissions on:.. Surface Water, ICSW.. Groundwater, ICGW.. Continental Erosion, ICCE.. Snow and Ice, ICSI.. Water Quality, ICWQ.. Water Resources Systems, ICWRS.. Remote Sensing, ICRS.. Atmosphere-Soil-Vegetation Relations, ICASVR.. Tracers, ICT.. The officers of each Commission are elected from the IAHS membership, by the members, every four years.. Each Commission has contributed a review of their activities and current work in their field for this publication.. Programme.. The Association’s activities span a four-year cycle between General Assemblies.. Recent Assemblies have been at Birmingham, UK, 1999, and Boulder, USA, 1995; the next will be in Sapporo, Japan, in July 2003.. Each year the Association and its Commissions organise symposia and workshops in different parts of the world, often in cooperation with UNESCO and WMO.. For example, in 2003 the Association is organising and co-sponsoring meetings at Stellenbosch, ... to contribute to hydrological research, improve understanding of their water resources and manage them more effectively.. It has accomplished this since 1991 by distributing the Journal and other publications to more than 70 libraries and institutes in some 50 countries free of charge.. The aim is to provide scientists and engineers in these countries access to the most recent hydrological literature, so long as this literature is made widely available inside and outside the recipient organisation.. The TFDC has also been successful in obtaining funds from outside bodies to support the attendance of members from developing countries at IAHS symposia and assemblies.. These funds have been generously donated since 1991 by UNESCO, WMO, UNEP, IAEA, Rotary International, IUGG and ICSU, as well as by a number of private trusts and organisations and by government agencies, including those in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the USA.. The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) has been very supportive of the Association for a number of years.. The future.. The six billion or more people on this planet now depend on the world’s finite supply of freshwater, but before 2050 there will be two or three million more with even greater needs.. Water for drinking, food production, sanitation, power, navigation and a host of other purposes is the basis of civilisation.. But at present more than one billion only have water unsafe to drink, and over two billion lack proper sanitation.. Hundreds of millions live in places where water is very scarce, a contested resource and where the recurring dangers of floods and droughts may be exacerbated by climate change.. The equitable and sustainable allocation of water resources and the prediction and mitigation of the impacts of extreme events must be based on the comprehensive understanding of these resources gained through cooperation amongst hydrologists and others professionally involved, and through cooperation and solidarity amongst nations.. IAHS is a prime medium for maintaining this cooperation.. Contacts.. Information about IAHS and the IAHS Commissions is available from the IAHS web site:.. For information about IAHS contact:..
