About database

The Regional Database on Pollution (RDB-P) is one of the components of the Black Sea Information System. It contains data on pollutants in water, sediments and biota collected in countries in the process of implementation of the BSIMAP and annually reported to the BSC. The data on nutrients constitute the major part of the database.

The regional environmental monitoring in the Black Sea is carried out within the framework of the Black Sea Integrated Monitoring and Assessment Programme (BSIMAP), implemented by the Black Sea Commission (BSC) since 2001. BSIMAP is addressed to the main transboundary environmental problems in the Black Sea region: eutrophication, water pollution and water quality, biodiversity change and decline, habitats destruction. BSIMAP provides common format reports to the BSC annually.

The data from the reports are loaded into the Black Sea Information System (BSIS) and used to evaluate changes over time in the coastal and marine environment. Developed in the middle of 2000 the BSIS is functioning in delayed mode and does not possess publicly accessible GIS interface. It shall be gradually updated to meet these present requirements.
