AirBase - The European air quality database
- AirBase is the air quality information system maintained by the EEA through the European topic centre on Air pollution and Climate Change mitigation. It contains air quality data delivered annually under 97/101/EC Council Decision establishing a reciprocal exchange of information and data from networks and individual stations measuring ambient air pollution within the Member States (EoI Decision). The EoI Decision distinguishes between information which must be transmitted in particular relating to the Directive on Air Quality (96/62/EC) and information that must be submitted where it is available. The four annexes in the EoI Decision (list of pollutants, statistical parameters and units of measurement; information concerning networks, stations and measurement techniques; data validation procedure and quality assurance; criteria for the aggregation of data and the calculation of statistical parameters) were amended by Commission Decision 2001/752/EC and its corrigendum. The EEA requests all its member and collaborating countries to provide the information foreseen by the EoI Decision because air pollution is a pan European issue and the EEA produces assessments of air quality, which cover the whole geographical area of Europe.
