NORMAN - EMPODAT Database
EMPODAT is a database of geo-referenced monitoring and bio-monitoring data on emerging substances in the following matrices: water, sediments, biota, SPM, soil, sewage sludge and air.
The EMPODAT database consists of:
- The Chemistry module for monitoring/occurrence data on emerging substances which are already known to be present in the environment but which are not yet included in routine monitoring programmes.
EMPODAT is designed to allow:
- Access to the latest information on emerging pollutants, with an overview of benchmark values on the occurrence of emerging substances across Europe;
- Identification of gaps in data relating to time, geographical areas and/or environmental matrices.
How to submit data
For information and conditions for the inclusion of your data in the NORMAN databases, please contact the Chairman of the Norman Association – Jaroslav SLOBODNIK.
To include data into the NORMAN database, DATA COLLECTION TEMPLATES (DCT) in excel were developed for each of the matrix. These DCTs can be downloaded at http://www.normandata.eu/empodat/dct_download_index.php.
Large datasets, available in other then excel format can be uploaded as well, after communication with the NORMAN team - to check the structure of data, availability of obligatory information and to agree on the optimal way of the data transfer.
