The universal concept and the general technical implementation of a Web Portal for Early Warning and Risk Management are described in this paper. As a prototype example for public access to a modern environmental monitoring and surveillance system, the Web Portal of a system for the remote monitoring of nuclear power plants is presented here in more detail. The concept, the architectural design and the user interface of this system had to meet high demands. Fulfilling the imposed requirements, a solution was developed which is universally suitable for environmental monitoring and surveillance, for early warning and for emergency management.
