Description The Ambient Monitoring Section’s (AMS) Database Management System (DBMS) is a collection of data tables and programs which together form an "application" allowing menu-driven access to those data tables. The system was designed primarily to serve as a repository for the River and Stream and Marine Water Column Programs’ ambient monitoring data. In addition to storing field and laboratory data, the system provides an evaluation of data quality, produces several reports, and provides for data retrievals in a number of formats. Most functions are menu-driven and available directly from the application. Some annual maintenance functions require loading and working within dBase®.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
