information on soils often constitute a basic source of information for studies
in production agriculture, environmental engineering, and remote sensing. A
new, searchable, relational database of soil physical and hydrophysical
properties has been developed for Hungarian soils. The database is stored in
MS-Access format. The database is compatible with most of the popular software
and can be run on a personal computer as well as on computer networks. It
currently stores data of 840 soil horizons, 576 having soil hydraulic data,
measured using nationally and internationally accepted standard methodology. An
outline of the structure and the contents of HUNSODA, as well as a basic guide
to its operation has been given. Developing this database may enhance the
ability of Hungarian soil scientists to address many more environmental issues
of concern, however, further expansion of the database is recommended.
Additional data can easily be included in the database. Expansion of the
database may help in making it more widely applicable.

Linssi is a Structured Query Language (SQL) database for HPGe gamma-ray spectrometry. It covers the whole production chain from
sample preparation to final analysis results. Static or mobile sampling and measurement and multiple sample types are supported.
In addition, each sample can be split or combined any number of times. A sample may be measured multiple times and each measurement
multiply analyzed as well. With Linssi, measurement setups with detectors, shields, attenuators and source geometries can be defined. Full control of calibrations,
their histories and tracing of each calibration point back to its corresponding analysis and calibration measurement is supported.
Linssi database and user scripts are available from http://linssi.hut.fi/radphys/linssi.

The applicability of the INIS database for literature retrieval on nuclear-related analytical techniques [e.g. neutron activation analysis (NAA), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE)] has been studied. There exist about 9700 documents on NAA and other forms of activation analysis, about 3500 documents on XRF and about 1200 documents on PIXE in the database collected from 1976 until July 1988. They cover a variety of elements and matrices in the fields of biology, geochemistry and the physical sciences. Some technical notes and comments on the practical use of this database are also included.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) maintains a database of biological and environmental reference materials of natural origin (human and animal tissues, foods, plants, soils, sediments, etc.) for trace elements, radionuclides, stable isotopes, organic contaminants and other related measurands. The purpose is to help analysts to select reference materials for quality assurance purposes that match as closely as possible (i.e., with respect to matrix type and concentrations of the measurands of interest) the real samples that are to be analyzed. Former versions of this database were prepared in co-operation with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and provided as hardcopies free of charge. The latest version was from 1995. More recently the database has been updated by the IAEA so that it now contains more than 22,500 values (mass fraction or concentration) for 660 different measurands and 1,705 reference materials developed by 56 producers from 22 countries. This paper gives an overview of the structure and content of the database and of the two ways it may be browsed. Emphasis is given to reference materials that are intended to verifying analysis for radioanalytical measurements. The database is soon accessible on-line, cost-free, via the internet.

A Radioanalytical Emergency Procedures Manual Database (REPMD) will be an important tool to assist laboratories preparing
for emergency response to a sudden release of radioactivity into the environment. The collection and systematic organization
of existing sampling, screening and radioanalytical methods will enable laboratories to assess the appropriate methodologies
for their use. REPMD is intended to be flexible, searchable, and interactive to accommodate a wide range of available techniques
while being protected from unauthorized modifications. Website access by the world-wide scientific community will make the
database a foundation for international comparison. The information in the database will also serve as a comprehensive and
periodically updated source of methods and procedures suitable for training programs and rapid reference.
A database has been designed for storing, retrieving and analyzing information about samples, experimental conditions and
results obtained by neutron activation analysis and gamma-ray spectrometry. It has been created using Microsoft ACCESS 2002
under a Windows operating system. The database has been designed not only for saving information but also for quality assurance
and quality control purposes. The structure of the relational design has been discussed and demonstrated with a new graphical
feature of ACCESS 2002 called PIVOTCHART.
