[CEST2019_00223] Sustainable landscapes: restoration and land use planning in an adaptive approach to climate change and desertification. Case study of Inter-Andean Valley of Cauca River in Colombia.
by Alvarado-Solano D.P., Otero J.T., Šarapatka B.

The inter-Andean valley of Cauca River (IVCR) is one of the most industrialized regions in Colombia leading its seasonally dry tropical forest (SDTF) to a fragmented and degraded state. Changes in land cover may alter the climatic and hydrological patterns. In the period 1984 – 2014, 26% of natural areas detected remotely at IVCR have persisted in a sugarcane matrix. However, IVCR species composition and its ecological status are unknown. After reviewing several datasets, 1725 plant species were compiled.

[CEST2019_00244] Risk analysis for gas pipelines: A sustainability assessment approach using bow-tie analysis
by Panagopoulos J., Karayannis A., Karayannis P. ,Gouvalias G.

Vast amounts of natural gas (NG) are consumed around the world everyday that are mainly transported and distributed through pipelines. Integrity of these pipelines is of primary interest to NG companies, consultants, governmental agencies, consumers and other stakeholder due to adverse consequences and heavy financial losses in case of system failure. Fault tree analysis (FTA) and event tree analysis (ETA) are two graphical techniques used to perform risk analysis, where FTA represents causes (likelihood) and ETA represents consequences of a failure event.

[CEST2019_00099] Fortified settlements between the Ambracian Gulf and Acherontas River in Preveza
by Saltagianni E., Katsaounou S., Gousis Ch.

The prefecture of Preveza is an area that has been an ideal place to live because there are the fields (are necessary for cultivation), the mountains (important for safe landscape), the rivers (are necessary for drinking water and watering the fields) and the sea (for trade and fishing). Such a landscape is formed between Acheron river and Louros river and their tributaries.

[CEST2019_00119] Deciphering Coastal Vulnerability Index (CVI) for the coastal areas of Rhodes Island and the possible impact on tourism
by Vandarakis D., Kyriakou K., Loukaidi V., Kyriakidou Ch., Gad F-K., Sourianos E., Kapsimalis V., Drakopoulou P., Kikaki A., Hatiris G-A, Panagiotopoulos I.P., Chatzinaki M., Morfis I., Sioulas A., Kanellopoulos Th., Livanos I.

Rhodes Island, located in the southeastern Aegean Archipelagos. Coastal areas, extended sandy beaches, people’s hospitality, and adequate infrastructure are principal factors that have increased the touristic value of the island. The estimation of the Coastal Vulnerability Index is important, since coastal environments play an important role for the tourist decision. Coastal systems are the most sensitive in environmental changes. In this study CVI is used, in order to indicate the most vulnerable areas, through the interpretation and the calculation of various parameters.
