    Topic
    1. Monitoring and impact assessment of the polluted air over the forest ecosystems

    Short Annotation
    Representative monitoring on a large scale has been carried out since 1986 about the state of the forest ecosystems in the countries of the European Economic Commission (EEC) at UNO and the European Union within the environmental programme from the Convention on the Transboundary Air Pollution over great distances. There are 35 countries participating in the implementation of the Monitoring and Impact Assessment of the Polluted Air over the Forest Ecosystems International Co-operative Programme (ICP-EEC-Forests). Bulgaria has participated in ICP-EEC-Forests since 1986. A network of 286 constant long-term experimental plots (CLEP) over the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria was created during 1986-1992. 189 CLEP are located in a 16 km network, and the rest are located in a 8?8 and 4?4 network. The monitored indicators in each EP (experimental plot) are more than 90. They are related to the location of the experimental plot, the inventory characteristics of the stand, herbacious phytocoenoses, soil conditions and the state of the woody vegetation. The implementation of the ICP is carried out using a common method accepted in all countries. EEC makes annual reports about the state of European forests.

    5. Environmental Impact Assessment of the emissions from Union Miniere Pirdop Copper AD (UMPC)on the soil in the region of Pirdop-Zlatitsa. Phare Programme Management Unit - Environment No BG 9310-03-05-02. 1997.

    Short Annotation
    Upon the analysis of the industrial and economic development of the Zlatitza-Pirdop trough and the impact of the biggest industrial centre UMPC AD-Pirdop - BIMAK-Chelopech on the environment, the following has been established:
    - changes in the demographic content and employment of the population;
    - changes in the social and economic status of the population;- changes and deterioration of the basic environmental parameters;
    - changes in the health status of the population.

    The main reasons for these changes lie in the industrial activities and the state of the technological facilities of UMPC AD-Pirdop and its production activities since its building up to the present.To summarize the results of the impact of UMPC AD-Pirdop's activities on soil and the environment since its building, we can say that up to its basic reconstruction in 1987 it polluted the soil in the agro and forest ecosystems, the town ecosystems and the environment all the year round through the air emissions - dust, arsenic and acid aerosols. After that the air pollution decreased significantly, but the plant continues to pollute through effluents and flowing waste products.Technological suggestions which will allow faster decrease of air pollution are made. The pollution of the subterranean water and the geological base will stop in about 27 years. Surface water can also be cleaned. Industrial pollution of all kinds will continue to affect the soil from the agricultural and forest fund, as well as the land available for use for a long time. The final estimate of the losses from not utilizing the potential of the agriculture and animal husbandry amounts to the total of 132 237 417 USD.After carrying out the necessary technological improvements in the production activities the soil and environmental pollution will be reduced significantly.Basic measures have been outlined in all directions for the reduction of the negative impact on the separate components of the environment.

    1. Determining and mapping the critacal rates for oxidizing pollutants in Bulgaria.

    Short Annotation
    On the basis of the steady State State Mass Balance method for ecosystem development, the critical rates for acidity sulphur, and nitrogen for certain teritorial units which are characterised by specific ecological conditions in watersheds wer determined. For this purpose the following information was used: the main rock, soil cover prevailing vegetation, the incoming alkalizing cations from weathering processes, the incoming protons, nitrogen, sulphur and alkalizing ions with precifitation waters, cutgoing nitrogen and alkalizing ions by utilizing biomass and by draining with water outflow outside the root zone, the presence of nitrogen and sulphur oxxides etc.

    Caculating and mapping the values of critical rates were made in a network with sides 50x50 km for the whole country as an element of the European network for monitoring the environmental pollution (EMEP).

    The excess critical rates for acidity, sulphur and nitrogen from real deposition of ocidizing pollutants in each cell of the EMEP network were determined. Software in Excel and Arcview the whole database and necessary formulas for calculating the critical rates and their excrss, as well as their mapping throughout Bulgaria.

    2. Determining the critical rates of heavy metals for surface waters and forest soils in Bulgaria

    Short Annotation
    A methodology is suggested for determinig the critical rates of lead, zinc and copper for particular territorial units of the watershed area in EMEP network 50x50 km, based on the balance principle for equal levels of the heavy metals which have entered the ecosystems through weathering processes, precipitation depositions, and the atmosphere on the hand, and the heavy metals which have left them through the vertical drainage of the water flow at their removal together with over-the-ground biomass. Software was developed to determine and map the critical rates of lead, zinc and copper. With the help of it each 50x50 km EMEP cell receives 3 values for critical rates - one for areas covered by coniferous plants, another for those covered by broad-leaved ones, and third mean value for the whole territorial unit. A project proposal for the V frame programme AMISAFFO with participation from Holland, England, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Slovakia and Russia was prepared.

    A scientific-research project in which the main categories of damaged areas are classified, considering that the new regulations on territorial and urban planning in Bulgaria, except the existing so far 3 categories of land funs (urban areas, agricultural lands and forests), make provision for 2 more categories - protected and damaged areas. The classification developed of the types of damaged areas in cities and the surrounding territories includes their categorisation by different groups of characteristics in 7 groups, and is open to improvement and elaboration. It will be used as a basis for developing a methodology for using the damaged areas by designing the special planning composition of cities in Bulgaria.
