An important aspect of an Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is the collection and analysis of baseline data. Baseline assessments ensure that the current state of the ecosystem are determined prior to the commencement of a project and the subsequent potential effects. A baseline assessment can be utilised to reassure the public and competent authority that all environmental issues have been identified and can be monitored effectively during the project commencement.
A list of potential baseline studies have been highlighted below:
Environmental baseline assessments can be utilised as an early warning system of potential impacts and the larger the amount of data that can be analysed and assessed the greater chance of determining trends with the current ecosystem. The more detailed the assessments the more accurate the assessment of the environmental parameters will be. This will ensure that environmental impacts associated with the project can be identified and that mitigation measures and procedures can be implemented.
