We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The range of work carried out at the JRC also includes the compilation of a large number of databases in addition to the development of software and modelling tools. These resources are either available to all members of the public or to specific research groups, providing assistance to scientists in carrying out their work.
The objective of this directory is to allow easy navigation through the available tools and databases, providing clear descriptions for each entry.
The tools and databases are categorised by name and acronym, but can be filtered by research area, keyword and JRC institute responsible for the coordination of the particular entry.
The ACP Environmental Observatory brings together a broad range of data and information to support Commission services and stakeholders in the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) Region - http://acpobservatory.jrc.ec.europa.eu
The JRC MARS bulletins offer in a near real time and in an operational context analyses and information on crop growth conditions and yield forecast at EU28 level and neighbouring countries like Ukraine, Black Sea area and Maghreb.
The bulletin archive gathers all bulletins published since 1997. The crops covered are wheat, barley, rice, maize, rye, triticale, rapeseed, sunflower, sugar beet, potato and pastures.
Here you will find documentation, articles, events and general information about the Mars Crop Yield Forecasting System (MCYFS).
In compliance with the Commission policy, gridded meteorological data sets, produced by AGRI4CAST, are available to the scientific community.
This ImageServer of Agri4Cast is the online portal for satellite remote sensing of vegetation state parameters.
AirMonTech is an EU FP7 project that compiles information to harmonise current air pollution monitoring techniques and to advise on future monitoring technologies and strategy. It collects existing information on current and future air quality (AQ) monitors.
AnisView is an educational software to visualize the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) using one of the two radiative transfer models RPV and MRPV. AnisView has the following features: Graphic display modes: Geometry: an interactive mode to visualize the user-driven illumination and observation geometry. Single BRF value: BRF as a function of the selected geometry and BRDF model parameters. 2-D plot: a cross-cut or plane along a specified azimuthal direction. 2-D contour plot: circular view of the BRDF field including interactive readout of BRF values.
The a4a method facilitates the estimation of the current fish stocks and the prediction of their future status under alternative scenarios.
The Atmosphere, Biosphere, Climate - Integrated Station (ABC-IS), provides datasets.
