British Geological Survey Council - The world's longest established national geological survey and the United Kingdom's premier centre for earth science information and expertise.

Brownfield Briefing - Brownfield Briefing is designed to bring you the latest news in the area of brownfield development.

Compendium of Common Pesticide Names - This Compendium is believed to be the only place where all of the ISO-approved standard names of chemical pesticides are listed. It also includes approved names from national and international bodies for pesticides that do not have ISO names.

Footprint - A research project which aims at developing a suite of pesticide risk prediction and management tools.

Waste Online - A website that provides information on sustainability, resource use and waste issues in an accessible and effective manner.

Tools & Software

Hydrology and Fluid Dynamics Group - Lancaster University

Summary: The Hydrology and Fluid Dynamics Group of Lancaster University present free Hydrology software tools for download. The list includes:
1. Generalised Likelihood Uncertainty Estimation (GLUE) Technique. Incorporating tools for sensitivity analysis and uncertainty estimation using the results of Monte Carlo simulations.
2. Digital Terrain Analysis Program (VB software for calculating the topographic index). Used to derive a distribution of ln(a/tanB) values from a regular raster grid of elevations for any catchment or subcatchment.
3. TOPMODEL (A simplified TOPMODEL implementation). VB Software best suited to catchments with shallow soils and moderate topography.
4. TFM (A simple Transfer Function Model). VB software for the analysis of rainfall-discharge catchment data based on Transfer Function Model concepts.

Keywords: download, software, tools, hydrology, analysis, topographic, VB, modeling, groundwater.

The PAN Pesticides Database

Summary: A comprehensive and up-to-date database of over 6,000 commonly used pesticides and their ingredients. The database allows users to search by chemical name or product branding. Related information for each pesticide includes the affects on human health and its toxicity to animals and the environment.

Keywords: pesticide, database, information, toxicity, ecotoxicity, ingredients.

Research Center for Groundwater Remediation Design

Summary: The groundwater research centre at the University of Vermont. The centre creates and implements computer-based optimal design algorithms for those working in groundwater remediation. The centre makes available two software downloads: one for groundwater management (MODOFC) and one for simulating groundwater contamination by Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPL)

Keywords: groundwater, research, software, strategy, remediation, design, monitoring, least-cost, solutions, NAPL, simulations, groundwater management.

European Co-ordination Action for Demonstration of Efficient Soil and Groundwater Remediation.

Summary: A Pan-European database of innovative soil and water remediation demonstrations, projects and pilot studies. Eurodemo's aims are to increase the flow of information, be a medium for the exchange of knowledge and experience, and develop common protocols for the soil and groundwater remediation industry. The database enables organisations engaged in remediation demonstrations to raise their European profile by contributing their projects to the website.

Keywords: database, information, soil, groundwater, remediation demonstration, funding, projects, technology, pilot study.
