Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS

Environmental Database

Summary:
The database contains compound specific information. The collection includes compounds with different volatility, chemical reactivity, and biological toxicity. The information for the region of the POPCYCLING-Baltic project is regarded as priority within the database, but the information for the neighbouring regions has also been collected.

The EDB contains the information of POP concentrations in: the air, wet and dry atmospheric deposition, seawater, freshwater, surface sediments, three species of biota: mussels, cod and herring, and selected vegetation.

In addition to the POP concentrations, the EDB provides the information on POP physical phase distribution, as well as on parameters such as POC and dissolved organic carbon (DOC). The information on detection limits and the type of sampling and analysis techniques has also been given for the included sets of data.
