Short description: BERISP aims at the development of new approaches to problems in spatial planning associated with soil contamination. North-Western Europe, with its high population density, faces increasing demands for open natural space. Many local authorities however, are currently confronted with problems regarding site development and soil pollution in for instance river floodplains and brownfields. The main objective of BERISP is the development of a Decision Support System (DSS), which will allow an iterative procedure in spatial planning processes, in which planner can review different types of landscape uses and habitat distribution against scientific knowledge on risks of pollutants for organisms.
