Databanks related to Environmental Issues

EEA: European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR)
is the new Europe-wide register that provides easily accessible key environmental data from industrial facilities in European Union Member States and in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia and Switzerland. It replaces and improves upon the previous European Pollutant Emission Register (EPER).

UBA: Air data
Several times a day measuring stations of the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) and the German States measure data on ambient air quality in Germany. On this website you can get up-to-date information about  air pollutants such as CO, SO2, O3, NO2.

UBA: Database for Ecotoxicological Effect Data and Quality Targets ETOX (in German and English)
The ETOX database provides access to eco-toxicological information on reported substances and organisms. A site search results in a list of all the tests containing the search term, detailing the interactions of the concerned substances in the environment or their impact on organisms.

UBA: Marine Environmental Data Base (MUDAB)
MUDAB is a joint project of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic  Agency (BSH) in Hamburg and of the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA) in Berlin. It is located at the German Oceanographic Data Centre in Hamburg and serves as the central German data base for marine data collected within the framework of international and national conventions for the protection of the North Sea and Baltic Sea. At present the data base covers about 5 500 cruises, with the data from some 250,000 stations - altogether more than 13 million records. The data covers physical variables such as temperature and salinity, O2, chemical variables like, e.g., nutrients and the organic, inorganic and radiochemical components of sea water, and physical and chemical variables in sediment.

UBA: PEPCY-Toxic and Bioactive PEPtides in CYanobacteria
Cyanobacterial peptides (cyanopeptides) are among the most ubiquitously found potentially hazardous substances in surface waters used by humans. Though these substances are natural in origin, eutrophication (i.e. excessive loading with fertilising nutrients) has caused massive cyanobacterial proliferation throughout Europe. Thus, cyanopeptides now occur with unnatural frequency and concentration.

UBA: Substances hazardous to waters (RIGOLETTO)
RIGOLETTO is an information system to document and search for classifications of substances hazardous to waters into water hazard classes (Wassergefährdungsklassen, WGK). Preparations are underway for launching the online registration of WGK documentations.
