Dear EEA,

I am a master's student and I am trying to conduct some research using EURO-FRIEND data.

I am trying this link but it does not seem to be up-to-date: https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/european-water-archive

It links to the German Institute of Hydrology website, https://www.bafg.de, and according to their website it is possible to request the data by emailing them, but their email server seems to be out of service and thus it is impossible for me to contact them.

Would it be possible for you to provide access to EURO-FRIEND data?

Thanks for your help.

Dear Victor,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The EEA does not actively participate in the initiative you are referring to. Nevertheless, I would suggest you to have a look at the Euro Friend website, http://ne-friend.bafg.de/servlet/is/7397/index.html, that contains several contact names notably M. Henry van Lanen (Uni. of Wageningen) and M. Ulrich Looser (Bafg - Global Runoff Data Centre). They would probably be able to guide you in your search.

Should you be interested in acquiring data from the European Water Archive (EWA), please see the procedure at https://www.bafg.de/[…]/dataRequestProcedure.pdf?__blob=publicationFile and note that some hydrological data, notably on EWA, can be downloaded from the Bafg website: https://www.bafg.de/.

Wishing you all the best in your research.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
