More than 14 million environmental sampling records from National Laboratory are now available onlineRead Now
LOS ALAMOS, N.M. – Regulators, stakeholders, scientists and the greater public will have access to remediation and other environmental data records associated with EM’s legacy nuclear cleanup program in near real time on a new website portal. Conversion to this cloud-based system achieved a substantial reduction in operating and maintenance costs, with changes and process improvements resulting in an estimated total cost savings of more than $15 million through 2015.
Previously contained in a dozen independent databases, the integrated records of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) — part of DOE’s network of national laboratories — are now stored in one location, the website Intellus.
The system contains 14 million records, including more than 28,000 locations and about 300,000 samples. The data span a wide range of media including air, soil, sediment, biota, and water, and it includes various analytes and time periods.
