Envirobase is a development of the Environmental Research Database which now includes information about
environmental observations collated by the UK Environmental Observation Framework (UK-EOF)
The Envirobase database is now closed. Between 2010 – 2015 Envirobase provided online access to, and customisable searches of, the details of environmental change research supported by LWEC Member organisations, who are public sector funders of environmental science. Information on this research can now be obtained by contacting the organisations directly. Member and affiliated organisations are listed here .
Envirobase held information on over 29,000 environmental research and observation activities, programmes and data sources provided by public sector funders and voluntary organisations. It was a public resource from the Living With Environmental Change partnership of particular interest to those engaged in:
- developing public or corporate policy
- planning or commissioning future research or observations
- research or observation work
- writing about environmental issues
It provided information on what is being done in the UK to understand the natural world and human interaction with it, and to develop solutions to environmental problems.
Envirobase provided, for the first time, a single search tool for finding both research ('RES') and observations ('UKEOF'), to help users to understand the complex funding and application picture.
For searching observational activities only, the UK-EOF Environmental Observation Activity Catalogue is still available.
