The National Environmental Data Centre (NEDC) online directory http://nedc.nz is a website resource that provides information on environmental datasets for Aotearoa New Zealand and in some places wider coverage. The datasets are each hosted by one of New Zealand's Crown Research Institutes; AgResearch, ESR, GNS Science, Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research, NIWA, Scion and Plant & Food Research. The datasets are categorised in terms of Atmosphere, Biodiversity, Climate, Freshwater, Geology, Land and Ocean themes.
This dataset contains Biome-BGC v4.2 model outputs of national pasture production forced with present day and 4 future projected CO2 Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP past, 2.6, 4.5, 6.0, and 8.5) taken from the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report. Meteorological inputs used to run the model were downscaled from six different General Circulation Models (GCMs): BCC-CSM1.1, CESM1-CAM5, GFDL-CM3, GISS-EL-R, HadGEM2-ES, and NorESM1-M. Outputs are provided for two different parameterizations of the Biome-BGC model to describe New Zealand’s two dominant types of pasture, dairy and sheep. The model was run at each point on NIWA’s Virtual Climate Station Network (VCSN), a 5 x 5 km national grid. The data consists of daily outputs at each grid box of net primary productivity (NPP), gross primary productivity, net ecosystem productivity (NEP), evapotranspiration (ET), water outflow, evaporation, transpiration, and soil water content, spanning 1971 – 2005 (RCP past) or 2006 – 2100 (RCP 2.6, 4.5, 6.0, and 8.5).
The Katrina Air Quality System (AQS) contains records specific to the Katrina/Rita Emergency Response and provides this data to the Environmapper application.
ToxCast is used as a cost-effective approach for efficiently prioritizing the toxicity testing of thousands of chemicals. It uses data from state-of-the-art high throughput screening (HTS) bioassay and builds computational models to forecast potential chemical toxicity in humans. ToxRefDB stores data related to ToxCast.
The Physiological Parameters Database for Older Adults is available for download and contains physiological parameters values for healthy older human adults (age 60 and older), as well as data for some individuals with adverse health conditions that may relate to environmental exposure. The information in this database was collected from review of peer-review published papers.
The Ecotoxicology Database (ECOTOX) provides information on effects of single chemicals to ecologically-relevant species.
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Information (RCRAInfo) system contains information reported to the state environmental programs on activities and cleanup from hazardous waste generators, transporters, treaters, storers and disposers of hazardous waste.
The PCB Residue Effects (PCBRes) Database was developed to assist scientists and risk assessors in correlating PCB and dioxin-like compound residues with toxic effects. The purpose is to develop PCB critical residue values for fish, mammals and birds, especially as these relate to aquatic and aquatic-dependent species.
The Assessment, Cleanup and Redevelopment Exchange System (ACRES) is an online database for Brownfields Grantees to electronically submit data directly to EPA.
