ECO3B-DELFT: Generic Estuary Modelling System to Evaluate Transport, Fate and Impact of Contaminants (GEMCO)

European estuarine and coastal waters may contain a range of organic and inorganic contaminants. Reliable methods are needed to assess how these behave in the three marine environmental compartments: offshore, estuarine and coastal zones. Transport and fate of contaminants in […]

ECO4-RIVO: MonitoringBase. Collation and Evaluation of Monitoring Programmes and Measured Environmental Concentration Data on Organic Chemicals in European Aquatic Environments

To facilitate retrieval of background concentrations and ranges of organic chemical concentrations in the marine and freshwater environment as input for various LRI models (e.g. multi-media, estuary models), ”MonitoringBase” was developed. This database includes information, references and links to more […]

IRTA2-002-UUIR: Heterogeneity in Response to Iso-Cyanate Exposure in the Work Environment

Di-isocyanates are in many countries a major cause of occupational asthma. However, few recent studies are available in which exposure to isocyanates has been measured and related to respiratory disease risk. Thus, information about exposure response relationships is extremely limited. […]

A2.2-UNJM: Determination of the Optimal Physico-Chemical Parameters to Use in a QSAR Approach to Predict Skin Permeation Rate

Many toxic chemicals can enter the body via the skin. Measuring a chemical's ability to cross the skin is difficult, time-consuming and costly. One solution is to develop models relating skin permeability to chemical structure - known as a quantitative […]
