Hi all,

this posting is a repetition of the one I\'d sent shortly after the server damage so some of you might have read it already.

Anyway, this is just to share a short list of some interesting web sources when it comes to environmental terms search:

1. An entire list of terminological sources regarding the environment can be found @


Most of the sources cited there are monolingual German but you\'ll find some GeEn glossaries/dictionaries as well.

2. http://glossary.eea.eu.int/EEAGlossary/

is the multilingual environmental glossary of the EEA (European Environment Agency), covering all official EU languages.

3. Three GeEn sources on landfill technology/management:

a) http://www.deponie-stief.de/woerterbuch/pdf/woerter_alles_mai02.pdf

(Ge->En landfill technology glossary)

b) http://www.deponie-stief.de/woerterbuch/pdf/words_all_may02.pdf

(its En->Ge counterpart)

c) http://www.deponie-stief.de/woerterbuch/pdf/woedict98.pdf

(En->Ge landfill sealing/capping glossary)

4. http://www.umweltlexikon-online.de/fp/archiv/RUBhome/index.php

(KATALYSE environmental dictionary, monolingual German)

5. http://www.bmu.de/download/dateien/csd_04.pdf

(monolingual German glossary of environmental and sustainability indicators, some English equivalents added)

6. http://www.umweltbundesamt.de/glossar/glossar.doc

(Federal Environmental Agency Ge->En glossary of terms pertaining to environmental protection)

7. http://www.umweltbundesamt.de/glossar/glossary.doc

(its En->Ge counterpart)

Hope these sources are of any help
