GENASIS information system

More information:

Laboratory of data analyses

 GENASIS (Global ENvironmental ASsessment and Evaluation System) is an environmental data repository that provides comprehensive information on chemical contamination of the environment. GENASIS combines data from long-term environmental monitoring programmes operated by RECETOX with validated data from partner institutions, and provides data archives, data management services and analytical processing of data.

Users obtain all available up-to-date information on spatial and temporal trends in chemical concentrations in various environmental matrices (air, water, soil, biota and human tissues) that can be sorted, viewed, analysed and interpreted using the GENASIS on-line tools: the information portal, analytical tools, publishing platform and on-line data visualization. GENASIS forms a data-based part of the Czech national environmental information system and its tools are designed to support, in particular, the implementation of the Stockholm Convention and other multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs), but also decision making at the national level. Internationally, GENASIS provides global information to all its potential users - international/global monitoring programmes, secretariats of MEAs and all environment related UN and EU institutions.
