Promoter - ICDCRM Miercurea Ciuc
The Research-Development Institute for Hunting and Mountain Resources Miercurea Ciuc operates under the auspices of the Academy of Agricultural and Forestry Sciences "Gheorghe Ionescu-Șișești" and operates under G.D. no. 992/2018. The relevant research areas addressed by ICDCRM researchers are in agri-environment and climate change, respectively the impact of different pollutants on environmental factors. The institute's researchers have managed to publish scientific papers in some of the best journals in the world, demonstrating that their research has a high international impact. We would like to mention works in the field of hydrology, where the impact of precipitation chemistry on different geochemical environments was studied, respectively the spatio-temporal variability of precipitation on closed intermountain basins, which also includes peatlands in the Center region. The researchers also addressed the issue of groundwater loss as a result of drainage works and regularization of watercourses, as well as peat self-ignition. The above-mentioned publications sustain the necessity of the subject of the present ecological rehabilitation program of wetlands/peatlands. The anthropogenic impact on peaty soils, peatlands and wetlands is being studied by ICDCRM in a project entitled Distribution of rare-earth elements in peat from Eastern Carpathian’s “Cold Pole” funded by the Budapest Neutron Centre (BNC), which evaluates the content of rare earth elements in peat. These results can be extrapolated to degraded peatlands in order to obtain relevant data on paleoclimate changes and the intensification of anthropogenic activities at regional level.
