The Bodies table contains the physical characteristics of the Eionet-Water groundwater bodies. Each groundwater body has been assigned a unique Waterbase identifier (WaterbaseID) which can be used to link the Bodies with their respective Quality and Pressures data.
Groundwater body thickness
approximate thickness of the groundwater body in m.
Depth to groundwater
depth to groundwater from the land surface to the top of the groundwater body in m.
Groundwater body area
groundwater body area in km2.
groundwater horizon in which the groundwater body is situated: 1 = top horizon etc...
Country name (ISO 3166-1)
official short name in English

Instead of using a fresh piece of paper for rough work, turn over a used copy and write on the other side. Use products made of recycled paper. Remember! Every ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees compared to paper made from virgin materials.
