    IEAM Podcast 34: A deep dive into the complexities of deep-sea mining, with Andrea Koschinsky

    The world’s growing population increases the already heavy demand on mineral resources on land, and so people are looking once more to the minerals found on the ocean floor, sometimes buried thousands of meters below the surface. The November 2018 issue of IEAM contains a critical review about deep-sea mining, and today we’re talking to lead author Andrea Koschinsky to learn more

    Finding balance: Resilience in ERA, with Marco Vighi and Andreu Rico

    Finding balance: Resilience in ERA, with Marco Vighi and Andreu Rico

    The concept of resilience has been discussed in ecology since the 1970s, but practitioners are now applying the concept to improve accuracy and realism in ecological risk assessments. The September 2018 issue of IEAM features a set of invited commentaries that discuss ecological resilience and what it means in practice for risk and impact assessments. Join us as we talk with commentary authors Marco Vighi and Andreu Rico about how resilience can be incorporated into ecological risk assessment, and the challenges and opportunities facing the regulatory community. Read their article “The concept of Resilience in Ecological Risk Assessment: Scientific and Regulatory Issues” in the September 2018 issue of IEAM.

    What lies beneath: The fallout of biomobilization at the Hanford site, with Sara Lovtang

    What lies beneath: The fallout of biomobilization at the Hanford site, with Sara Lovtang

    Soil caps are a commonly employed technique in remediation efforts at contaminated sites. Once cleanup efforts are complete, however, plants and animals at these sites may inadvertently disrupt the best laid plans if not properly accounted for. We chat with Sara Lovtang, lead author on an IEAM article that defends the established depth of the biologically active zone at Hanford, a nuclear waste site that processed plutonium fuel during World War II at the height of its operations. Her article “The biologically active zone in upland habitats at the Hanford Site, Washington, USA: Focus on plant rooting depth and biomobilization” is published in the July 2018 issue of IEAM.

    Tipping the scales: weight of evidence approach for qualities and quantities, with Susan Cormier

    Tipping the scales: weight of evidence approach for qualities and quantities, with Susan Cormier

    Imagine you are conducting an environmental assessment, and you have several pieces of evidence for possible integration into the assessment. Are they all relevant? Are they equally valuable? Enter weight of evidence, a process to help assign value to pieces of information that might be useful for an assessment.
    Two companion articles in the November 2017 issue of IEAM present different components of a recently developed US Environmental Protection Agency weight of evidence framework: one discusses inferring qualities while the other infers quantities. Author Susan Cormier highlights the frameworks in this episode.
    Access the articles in the November 2017 issue of IEAM.
