SERRA (Support for Environmental Rapid Risk Assessment) Database
NICHOLS, T. SERRA (Support for Environmental Rapid Risk Assessment) Database . U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/C-09/006, 2009.
EPA developed the Support for Environmental Rapid Risk Assessment (SERRA) database to accelerate the risk assessment process and to support emergency response. Because it contains an extensive compilation of scientific information designed to assist in managing, cleaning up, and mitigating hazards in the aftermath of a terrorist event, SERRA is also referred to as a “knowledge base”. EPA designed this database for use by decision makers, scientists, and emergency personnel. SERRA includes nine major categories of information. Categories are sometimes referred to as nodes in the SERRA knowledge base. Each of the categories has approximately 10 to 20 subcategories of information.
