NowpapMED (Marine Environmental Data) is a database from the major outcome of the DINRAC's activity - Annual Summary of Major Marine Environmental Data Available in Member States. The Marine Environmental Data is the results of the Annual collection of data and information collected by DINRAC Focal Points in member states according to the designed Data Collection Framework and Data Collection Form.
NowpapIR (Information Resources) provide access to available coastal, marine, ecological and marine environment information on NOWPAP area of each member country which is scattered among various sources (data bases, archives, reports, books, papers, atlases, websites) primary existing in different languages and hence, limited for wide use. It serves as an exchange platform integrating available information resources (IRs) distributed within the NOWPAP area into unified space and linking to websites/pages of member countries and RACs. NowpapIR makes provision of DINRAC services through the decentralized internet communication network supposed to provide modes of on-line creation of new IRs description, search data, information and products by countries, different categories and parameters that supporting data dissemination, exchange and decisions-making process among the countries.
Available national IRs of the region are searchable by the Countries, Main objects/categories, Main sources of contaminants, Marine environment quality indicators and Main Marine pollution characteristics as follow:
|Main objects/categories||Main sources of contaminants||Marine environment quality indicators||Main Marine pollution characteristics|
|Atmosphere. Seawater. Bottom sediments. Marine ecosystems and organisms. Environmental protection.||River input. Direct input. Atmospheric deposition.||Hydrochemical parameters. Ecosystem status indicators. Hydrobiological parameters. Microbiological parameters||Radionuclides. hlororganic compounds. Heavy metals. Oil and petroleum hydrocarbons. Detergents. Phenols, etc|
Search is implemented in two stages. At the first stage search in the base of the metadata, including the description of information resources is carried out. At the second stage, for the information resources loaded into databases, through applications, the data access and provision of the information is fulfilled.
NowpapC&N (Contaminants & Nutrients) - a Database on the information related to the contaminants and nutrients in the marine and coastal environment in the NOWPAP region. NowpapC&N serves as an entry to access many information sources mainly in the NOWPAP region. People can find what sort of contaminants and/or nutrients, in which geographic scope, who conducted the survey/investigation and some technical details such as observation parameters, analytical methods and sampling frequency, when the activity carried out and to whom can be contacted, of course, online linkage URL included.
NowpapMPAs (Marine Protected Areas）- a Database on Marine Protected Areas in the Northwest Pacific Region, which is developed and maintained by NOWPAP DINRAC, has given a review and understanding on the current situation and development of nature reserves, including the location, name, level, type, area, nature condition, social and economical situation, management, marine protected species, species diversity and list of endangered species, so as to promote information exchange and distribution on marine and coastal environmental protection in the NOWPAP Region.
NowpapOilSpill (Oil Spill Accidents) - a Database on Oil Spill Accidents in Northwest Pacific Region. The list of Oil Spill Accidents is developed and updeted regularly by NOWPAP MERRAC, it include the name and nationality of the vessel, the location, i.e., longitude and latitude, type of spilled oil and effects etc. The database is developed and maintained by NOWPAP DINRAC.
NowpapHNS (Hazardous and Noxious Substance Spill Accidents) - a Database on Hazardous and Noxious Substance (HNS) Spill Accidents in Northwest Pacific Region. The list of HNS Spill Accidents is developed and updeted regularly by NOWPAP MERRAC, it include the location, i.e., longitude and latitude, name of ship, type of HNS, etc. The database is developed and maintained by NOWPAP DINRAC.
NowpapReferenceAD (Reference on Atmospheric Deposition of Contaminants）- a reference database on atmospheric deposition of contaminants into the marine and coastal environment in NOWPAP Region (AD Reference Database), is developed and maintained by NOWPAP POMRAC and DINRAC
NowpapReferenceRDI (Reference on River and Direct Inputs of Contaminants) - a reference database on river and direct Inputs of contaminants into the marine and coastal environment in NOWPAP Region (RDI Reference Database), is developed and maintained by NOWPAP POMRAC and DINRAC
NowpapReferenceICARM (Reference Database on Integrated Coastal and River Basin Management) - a Reference Database on Integrated Coastal and River Basin Management in NOWPAP Region (ICARM Reference Database) is developed and maintained by NOWPAP POMRAC and DINRAC for improving information exchange related to integrated management of coastal areas and river basins in North-West Pacific.
NowpapReferenceICARM comprises data on articles, scientific reports, databases and Internet resources concerning sustainable development of coastal zones and river basins in NOWPAP Region
NowpapGIS (GIS & RS Products) - a set of Databases on Coastal and Marine Environmental GIS & RS Products in the Northwest Pacific Region, is developed and maintained by NOWPAP DINRAC. Three databases, NowpapGISdata, and NowpasGISsystem and NowpapGISreport are included.
NowpapInstitutions (Institutions) - a Database on Coastal and Marine Environmental Institutions in the Northwest Pacific Region, is developed and maintained by NOWPAP DINRAC. The main information in the NowpapInstitution is on the institutions/organizations involved in all aspects of coastal and marine environmental research and management in the region.
NowpapExperts (Experts)- a Database on Coastal and Marine Environmental Experts in the Northwest Pacific Region, is developed and maintained by NOWPAP DINRAC. The main information in the database is on individuals involved in all aspects of coastal and marine environmental research and management in the region. A 'professional' is defined as a person who, through his/her job, has expertise related to the research and management of the coastal and marine environment.
NowpapLaw - Collection of English translation of marine environmental protection laws in NOWPAP member countries is for the ease of your reference only. In case any discrepancy exists between the English texts and the original texts in national language of NOWPAP member countries, the original texts shall prevail.
NowpapStandard - Collection of Environmental Standards related to marine environment in NOWPAP countries is compiled by DINRAC and based on the report, "Regional Overview on River and Direct Inputs of Contaminants into the Marine and Coastal Environment in NOWPAP Region". It contains relevant environmental standards in China, Korea, Japan and Russia related to marine environment, and relevant environmental monitoring mechanisms in Japan and Korea. This collection is still at an early stage and will be continuously updated in the future.
