Abstract

The data of more than 100 monitoring programs in Germany for the substance group of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including the polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are to be used for a modelling approach for a PCB inventory. The application landscape of the Federation/Laender POP-DioxinDatabase, which is operated in the German Environment Agency, pursues an interdisciplinary approach and includes all these data. A cross-media evaluation and assessment of environmental data are necessary and relevant to the target system, compiling an inventory of PCBs in our environment. The question arises how the integrated modelling concept can control the knowledge-based methods, with the aim to assess the state of PCB contamination in context to PCB- footprints in the environment.

Modelling approach for a PCB inventory in our environment
