The FluxStations table contains the physical characteristics of the Eurowaternet transitional, coastal and marine water stations used to monitor riverine input loads. Each station has been assigned a unique Waterbase identifier (WaterbaseID) which can be used to link the FluxStations with their respective Input (load) data.
Sea convention area
marine Convention area of which regional sea is a part: BSC, HELCOM, HELCOM/OSPAR, OSPAR, UNEP/MAP.
Sea region name
name of regional sea of which sea area is a part.
catchment name at the national level, referring to major river catchment or basin draining into transitional or coastal water.
National station ID
identifier of the transitional, coastal or marine water flux station, unique at the national level. The identifier should be the same as previously supplied to represent the (flux) river monitoring station.
Sea area name
name of local sea area in which station is located. WaterBodyName and SeaAreaName may be the same.
river name at the national level.
Water body name
water body name as defined for the Water Framework Directive.
Country name (ISO 3166-1)
Official short name in English.
name of the transitional, coastal or marine water monitoring station.
(X) International geographical co-ordinates of the monitoring station in decimal degrees format.
(Y) International geographical co-ordinates of the monitoring station in decimal degrees format.
ISO 3166-alpha-2 code elements.
Internally produced, unique identifier used to represent the flux monitoring station, in the format CountryCode_WaterDataSetF_NationalStationID (e.g. GB_TCMF_12345). Due to the inclusion of the WaterDataSet code and the “F” (TCMF), the WaterbaseID for a flux station will always differ from the WaterbaseID of other stations, even if the same NationalStationID is used.
