Environmental monitoring and information systems are developing rapidly, to the point where on-line data sources and real-time monitoring data can become a robust component of environmental models, as they already are in emergency and early warning systems. Many environmental models are, however, constructed using fixed historical or stochastic data, and are calibrated and parameterised accordingly. This session considers the theory and practice of environmental model design, construction and operation using data from variable sources such as sensor networks, on-line databases and datanets.

The session will comprise, but is not restricted to, empirical and theoretical contributions on the role, effect and impact of ICTs on economic growth, employment and productivity viewed from an economic perspective. ICTs as a 'general purpose technology' are seen as key to our understanding of the New Knowledge-Based Economies. How those ICTs impact upon and help explain differential economic performance, is the main focus of this session.
