MUDAB - Marine Environmental Data Base Germany
The Marine Environmental Data Base (MUDAB) is a joint project of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) in Hamburg and of the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA) in Berlin. MUDAB is the primary database for marine environmental monitoring data collected by German federal states and state agencies. MUDAB data are used to fulfill Germany's reporting obligations as part of international treaties and conventions targeting the protection of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. The data cover physical variables such as temperature and salinity, chemical variables like, e.g. O2, nutrients, and the organic, inorganic and radiochemical components of sea water, and physical and chemical variables in sediment.
The MUDAB web client is currently in the test phase. Access to the data will be made available in fall 2007.
