3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

SITO evaluates the impact of major industrial activities on the environment. The method applied accounts for the alterations of ecological, physico-chemical, aesthetical and social values caused by the development of the considered activity. Such values are usually considered as not quantifiable but very important for the quality of the environment.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The territory affected by the industrial project is described in a one-dimensional (for example a coast development) or two-dimensional representation as a lattice of square meshes of equal size. A major feature of the model is that the impact factors are considered with reference to each single mesh.

The following vectors and matrices are evaluated:

a) Matrix of environmental quality characteristics. It is the  product of the environmental quality index matrix and the vector     of weighting factors.

b) Vector of the initial environmental values. It is the sum of the      columns of matrix (a).

c) Matrix obtained when the environmental quality characteristics  matrix is multiplied by the vector of project action factors,     taking into account distance effects.

d) Vector of the final environmental values. This is the sum of     columns of matrix (c).
