Topics:
European air quality information reported by EEA member countries, including all EU Member States, as well as EEA cooperating and other reporting countries. The EEA’s air quality database consists of a multi-annual time series of air quality measurement data and calculated statistics for a number of air pollutants. It also contains meta-information on the monitoring networks involved, their stations and measurements, air quality modelling techniques, as well as air quality zones, assessment regimes, compliance attainments and air quality plans and programmes reported by the EU Member States and European Economic Area countries.

European data

Assessment methods meta-data reported by countries (data flow D)

Assessment methods meta-data describe techniques used for measuring or modelling of air pollutant concentrations. The data in the web-based application reflect the latest reports uploaded and successfully tested by automated QC.

DISCLAIMER: The online viewers presented here connect live with EEA's databases. The data is under constant update and improvement over the period of September – October (around the main reporting deadline at 30/09). Apart from this time, we foresee the main updates in mid-November, mid-January, mid-April and mid-July. Nevertheless, please make sure that you download all data you need for your analysis/assessments from the different viewers within the same day and you maintain proper versioning on your side.
DISCLAIMER: despite constant improvement of the quality of data collected within new reporting procedures for air quality information, still inconsistencies, incompleteness and/or errors cannot be ruled out. EEA would appreciate if any possible problems are brought to our attention.
