MAGIC: Meta-Analysis of Global Impacts of Chemicals
The MAGIC research team collects, links, analyses, contextualizes and visualizes environmental data on the presence, effects and management of chemicals. We apply techniques such as data mining, meta-analyses, geo-statistics, modelling, graph databases, machine learning and semantic web technologies to better understand why chemicals occur when and where in the environment. We strive to quantify the risks resulting from the presences of chemicals in the environment for various groups of aquatic and terrestrial species and ecosystem functions. We furthermore aim to identify appropriate risk management approaches.
