Building a climate-ready adaptation society is an urgent question that cannot be postponed. Along the path towards an increase in climate resilience, a stimulating role is played by EU projects as well as by international climate networks such as the Covenant of Mayors Initiative on Climate Change Adaptation (Mayors Adapt), launched in 2014, and the new Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy which "pledge to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030 and to adopt an integrated approach to tackling mitigation and adaptation to climate change". These initiatives stimulate engagement and networking among cities and raise public awareness encouraging policy makers to take action to adapt to climate change. Adaptation operates at different spatial and societal scales. Accordingly, the development of climate change adaptation strategies requires a holistic and multi-perspective approach with scale-specific studies.This paper provides an overview of adaptation initiatives undertaken in 11 South East European countries participating in the SEE OrientGate project, with reference to the policies and measures promoted by the EU and implemented at national level. In particular, a cross-sectoral policy analysis is performed and an inclusive representation of measures and policies undertaken by countries with an interdisciplinary approach is provided. The analysis of the country measures reveals that unless national governments and local communities are concerned with the impacts of climate change only few of the countries included in the analysis have developed a comprehensive National Adaptation Strategy and a National Action Plans. Nevertheless, almost all the countries have undertaken adaptation actions across sectors. Although these actions have only partially generated a full commitment towards climate adaptation, they attest an increasing awareness as well as a high involvement of national and local authorities that will boost cooperation among stakeholders to find out innovative solutions to strengthen society and protect the environment. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.

Interaction of mefenamic acid [2-(2,3-dimethylphenyl)aminobenzoic acid, maH] with piperazine (ppz), 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane (cyclen), meso-5,7,7,12,12,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane (teta), and tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane (tris) resulted in crystalline proton-transfer complexes of the compositions (ppzH2)(ma)2·4H 2O 1, (cyclenH2)(ma)2·2H2O 2, (tetaH2)(ma)2·2H2O 3, and (trisH)(ma)·H2O 4. Immediate cation-anion hydrogen bonds and those mediated by water molecules are the prime driving forces for the maH and amine assembly. Persistent CH⋯π interactions involving the aromatic rings were found to play an important role in the formation of final structures. All complexes reveal the pronounced segregation of hydrophilic and hydrophobic regions. © 2010 American Chemical Society.

The asymmetric isonaphthalene imide, 3-[(4-nitrophenyl)imino]-1H,3H- benzo[de]isochromen-1-one was obtained by condensation of 1,8-naphthoylchloride with p-nitroaniline in the presence of pyridine. The crystal structure and vibrational and electronic absorption spectra are reported. The emission spectrum of the crystalline phase demonstrates dual luminescence, with short and long wavelength components, while only the short wavelength component is present in chloroform solution. The geometrical and electronic structures of the ground and excited states of the molecule are investigated using density functional theory methods. Dual fluorescence is explained in terms of the excited states of different nature. The spectroscopic properties of newly synthesized compounds for possible biosensor applications are discussed. © 2013 American Chemical Society.

Issue: The environmental issue of concern of the LAGOONS project is the anthropogenic deterioration and climate change impacts - especially the effects of extreme weather events- on surface water and lagoons ecosystems. Objectives: The main objective of the LAGOONS project is to contribute to a science-based seamless strategy - in an integrated and coordinated fashion - of the management of lagoons seen under the land-sea and science-policy-stakeholder interface; i.e., the project seek to underpin the integration of the EU Water Framework Directive, Habitat Directive, the EUs ICZM Recommendation, and the EU Marine Strategy Directive. Methodology: Four case study lagoons have been selected to represent a set of hotspot coastal lagoons with a wide and balanced geographical distribution and different characteristics. The lagoons included are: Vistula Lagoon in Baltic Sea (transboundary Poland/Russia); Tylygulskyi Lagoon in Black Sea (Ukraine); Ria de Aveiro Lagoon in Atlantic Ocean (Portugal), and Mar Menor in the Mediterranean Sea (Spain). By means of elaborating integrated strategies for sustainable development of the case study lagoons in the climate change context, the LAGOONS project will contribute to the goals of the Call showing that it is possible to enhance connectivity between research and policy-making in a lagoons context using a proactive approach to water issues, which assures more efficient use of existing research results. Impact: In management terms, LAGOONS will contribute to the decision-support methodologies for a coordinated approach to the Water Framework Directive and the Marine Strategy Directive. In addition, LAGOONS will propose actions to tackle bottlenecks in the context of climate change, i.e., LAGOONS will propose actions foreseen in the goals of the Europe 2020 strategy - A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

General problems of electronic conductivity, reasons for a current flow, the role of electrochemical potentials, Fermi functions, the Fermi window for conduction, the elastic resistor model, different electron transport regimes, conduction modes, and transmission coefficients are discussed in terms of the "bottom-up" approach to nanoelectronics. The generalized model of electron transport in the linear response regime developed by R. Landauer, S. Datta, and M. Lundstrom, which can be applied to conductors of any size, scale, and arbitrary dispersion in the ballistic, quasi-ballistic, or diffusive regimes is described. © 2014 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

Based on the Landauer-Datta-Lundstrom transport model, the generalized model of heat transfer by phonons is formulated. Similarly to the Fermi window for electron conductivity, the concept of the Fermi window for phonon conductivity is introduced and used to obtain the general expression for the lattice thermal conductivity with the quantum of thermal conductance appearing at the very beginning. There are emphasized the similarity and differences in the construction of the theory of electron conductivity and the theory of heat conduction. There are discussed the thermal conductivity of the conductors, the physical sense of proportionality between the thermal conductivity and the specific heat capacity at constant volume, the relationship between the transmission coefficient and the mean-free-path, the calculation of the number of phonon modes and density of phonon states, the Debye model of heat conductivity and scattering of phonons, the temperature dependence of the lattice thermal conductivity, the difference between the lattice thermal conductivity and electron conduction, and quantization of thermal conductivity.

Purpose of the paper is to provide preliminary assessment of wind resources for different regions of Ukraine. Investigation is based on thirty-minute wind observations collected through an 8-year period (2001 to 2008) for seven airports of Ukraine. By applying of probabilistic analysis techniques to wind data series, different temporal variations of wind speed and direction are derived. The statistic characteristics obtained were compared with the correspondent values provided for 1936-1960 and 1961-1990 periods and site-related temporal changeability is determined.

The variations of total ozone column over Europe at the multiyear time scale have earlier been characterised by the changes in the phase of North Atlantic Oscillation. Spatial patterns over Europe in total ozone column response to weather pattern changes associated with the North Atlantic Oscillation are investigated here using the cross-wavelet transform. The average cross-wavelet powers and local relative phases are calculated. It is shown that near a centre of action associated with the NAO the changes of total ozone column are maximal and become apparent immediately after the changes in the weather pattern. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
