PARTNERS IN THE PROJECT
Research Institute for Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry
of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences
RISSAC is the scientific centre in Hungary for soil science, agro-chemistry and soil biology.
The Institute is responsible primarily for fundamental research in these fields with significant
applied research, education, advisory and information activities, and extensive national and
international co-operation. RISSAC is the co-ordination centre of numerous national and international programmes.
The institute was established in 1949.
The most important current projects of RISSAC’s GIS Lab:
Past projects important from the current proposal’s point of view are enumerated bellow. Tasks of the project manager of the current proposal
(DOMBOS Miklos: DM) and the RISSAC GIS team are highlighted in italic.
- Complex monitoring system for analytical detection and biological evaluation of soil micro pollutants for a sustainable environment (MONTABIO, 2008-2010)
- Estimate of the percentage of the greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, dinitrous-oxide) in the atmosphere on agricultural lands in Hungary
GVOP-AKF-3.1.1.-2004-05-0358/3.0, OMSZ, 2005-2007
- Interaction between natural and human influenced ecosystems: biodiversity, ecosystem functions of various soils and land use evaluation in the
Hungarian Great Plain - OM NKFP6-00013/2005 2006-2008, MTA ÖBKI
- Elaboration of the development of competitive and environmentally-conscious agricultural practice and technology in order to protect waters from nitrate pollution
OM NKFP6-051/2005, 2006-2008
- Development of water management and land use conception based on water retention in “Bodrogköz” (INTERREG III/A, financed by EU project, 2006-2007)
RISSAC GIS provided soil physical, chemical and biological information in digital maps for modeling water management of the river Tisza
(3D water flow modeling) and land use planning. DM was responsible for field work, soil sampling, and ecological evaluation.
- Environmental assessment of soil for monitoring (ENVASSO) Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP), Scientific Support to Policy (SSP)
01 January 2006 - 31 December 2007. EU Sixth Framework Research Programme, Priority SSP-4 Policies Task 6. DM took part in the soil biodiversity
working group, task: contribution to the proposal of indicators for soil mesofauna, methods for monitoring of soil biodiversity
- National Soil Degradation Monitoring System, KEOP-6.3.0/1F-2008-0013, Soil biodiversity monitoring are carried out by the RISSAC GIS managed by DM
- Calibration of the lab instrument: Tullgren–type extractor (NKB–KUT–2/08; 2001-2002) extractor to sample soil mesofauna have been constructed,
DM tested its catchability, accuracy and precision.
- Estimation of ecological degradation processes by information statistical methods in plant and mesofauna (Hungarian Scientific Research Grant
-OTKA F 02010; 1996-2000) The aim of the first project DM took part in was to assess ecological degradation in the above ground and belowground
communities (plants and soil insects). task: DM sampled soil mesofauna in differently grazed grasslands and analyzed the spatial pattern of
collembolan communities. We found differences in species composition and spatial patterns of collembolan communities. Part of DM’s Ph.D. Thesis
Deák Delta Ltd
Deák Delta Ltd. was established in 1997 in Hungary by Hungarian private founders. Fields of activities of the company includes
Deák Delta Ltd. works in a holding system running various branches and groups that provides high efficiency and flexibility a
s for implementing projects, but it requires a relatively low level of administration. Management of the company is done by
3 engineers. The centre of the company is in Mártély and it has offices in Kistelek, Hódmezővásárhely and Szeged.
- renovation and updating industrial machinery and equipments;
- planning, developing and manufacturing special manufacturing equipments and machinery;
- developing and manufacturing prototypes;
- special emphasis is given to developing new measurement technologies;
- developing projects in the field of electronics, machinery production, cable and light industry, and metallurgy
that needs target-oriented, quick solutions, high-qualified engineering and professional manufacturing capacity.
The company has developed and built a complex state-of-the-art measurement device. The device is applied in a ‚time-wheel‘
a special hour-glass set in Budapest for celebrating Hungary’s accession to the European union. The hour-glass contains about
8000 kg sand and it has been working perfectly since then – due to our special device
Our company took a considerable part in the reconstruction and updating of the former Hungarian Cable Factory owned later by
Siemens, Pirelli and Prysmian lately. More than 50 cable manufacturing machinery were renovated or deployed by Deák Delta Ltd.
Machinery were equipped with state-of-the-art PLC commanding system and the production process can be controlled on any place
in the world – due to our own-developed data collecting system.
Our company did a number of technological developments by developing, manufacturing and launching industrial computer examination
system and equipment, when overall renovating the high-voltage experimental laboratory of Balassagyarmat Cable Factory
For Kisteleki Cable Factory, our electric engineers in co-operation with the Department of Electric Energetics of Budapest
University of Technology and Economy has developed a modern computer-controlled cable quality controlling device that enables
manufacturers to control the cable quality intermittently during the manufacturing and at the end.
We have developed a costumised cable manufacturing machinery for FUX Co. in Miskolc. Besides we have deployed a number of
traditional machineries in the last years for the same client.
