to present information

Description:

The Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable (Roundtable) eveloped this publication to provide information on accessing Federal data bases that contain data on innovative remediation technologies. The Roundtable includes representatives from the Department of Defense (DoD), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Interior (DOI), and the National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA). The data base profiles contained herein were identified through a review of Agency reports, articles, and publications; and telephone interviews with data base experts. This document is a reference tool that provides information on those systems maintaining data on remedial technologies. It may be used by Project Managers as a pointer to repositories of technical information, or as a source of contacts that may be useful to future system design. Each data base profile contains information on specific data elements, system uses, hardware and software requirements, and access. The profiles also include Agency contacts for each system should you require more detailed information. This publication contains profiles for three types of data systems: technology data bases, expert systems, and bulletin boards. The technology data bases provide bibliographical and technical information on the uses of various remedial action technologies, including innovative technologies. The expert systems aid decision-makers in selecting remedial action alternatives. Those listed in this document incorporate modules which provide descriptions for various remedial technologies. The electronic bulletin boards provide the user with information on how to access Agency technology transfer systems, relevant conferences, seminars; they also have the capability to provide or display information on remedial technologies.
