Air quality in Europe - NOTE: THIS APPLICATION IS OUTDATED. A NEW VERSION IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT. The latest data sets and static maps are available at: http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/interpolated-air-quality-data-1
The maps are derived from the measurement data at the stations in AirBase (EEA air quality database) in combination with modelled output from EMEP and with other parameters. These maps are assessment tools for use at the European scale. They may show results which differ from assessments made at national scale. The example shows the interpolated map of annual averages for particulate matter (PM10) in 2005.
Some 97.5% of water on the Earth is salt water, leaving only 2.5% as fresh water. Of this over two thirds is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps. The remaining unfrozen fresh water is found mainly as groundwater, with only a small fraction present in rivers, lakes or in the air. Water is a precious resource, use it responsibly and don’t waste it!
