||The purpose of Aquatic Toxicity Information Retrieval (AQUIRE) data base is to provide scientists and managers quick access to a comprehensive, systematic, computerized compilation of aquatic toxicity data. Scientific papers published both nationally and internationally on the toxicity of chemicals to aquatic organisms and plants are collected and reviewed for AQUIRE. Independently compiled data files that meet AQUIRE parameter and quality assurance criteria are also included. Selected toxicity test results and related testing information for any individual chemical from laboratory and field aquatic toxicity tests are extracted and added to AQUIRE. Acute, sublethal and bioconcentration effects are included for tests with freshwater and marine organisms. The total number of data records in AQUIRE now equals 104,500. This includes data from 6000 references, for 5200 chemicals and 2400 test species. A major data file, Acute Toxicity of Organic Chemicals (ATOC), has been incorporated into AQUIRE. The ATOC file contains laboratory acute test data on 525 organic chemicals using juvenile fathead minnows. The complete data file can be accessed by requesting review code 5 as a search parameter.
||Source tape is in the ASCII format. This restricts preparation to 9 track, one-half inch tape only. Identify recording mode by specifying density only. For price at 6250 bpi density, call NTIS Computer Products.
