The Environmental Characterization Database is a system that allows for the storage, consultation, and sharing of environmental data collected through any project that generates data on water quality, plankton, seabed cover, sediment quality, benthos and nekton in marine environment, in addition to the possibility of including key data for the synergistic and ecological understanding of these elements (such as meteorological-oceanographic data). It is prepared both to receive data from Environmental Characterization Projects (PCAs) and Environmental Monitoring Projects (PMAs) carried out within environmental licensing and post-licensing processes, at the Federal and State levels, as well as from research projects with diverse structures and characteristics.
More than just a database, the Environmental Characterization Database provides an easy-to-use platform for intuitively adding, reviewing, and visualizing data. The system features a detailed search interface that makes it possible to correlate parameter results obtained by different projects and campaigns, quickly drawing an overview of these data.
The information contained in this Database is public, having been generated within different contexts, from environmental licensing requirements for oil and gas activities to research and extension projects. Responsibilities for generating, loading and publishing on the database are clearly identified. No user who publishes their data on the database will be responsible, in any way, for updating these data or for any future uses that may occur.
