alesarrett Dear EEA Web Team,
regarding the web page on Waterbase - Transitional, coastal and marine waters (
http://www.eea.europa.eu/da[…]ds&utm_campaign=Generic) I've tried to download the Waterbase_tcm_v9_csv.zip and Waterbase_tcm_v9_mdb.zip datasets, but a password for accessing the ftp is required. Is it a known and wanted behaviour or is it an error?
Thank you for you attention.
Best regards
Alessandro Sarretta

pietrooo Dear EEA,
with this I would like to bring a major environmental topic to your attention. As an independent researcher (www.havasi.sk), I have come across to an official study discussing an environmental disaster that takes place in Bratislava the capital of Slovakia - European Union.

In the 1960's a chemical industry called of Georgi Dimitrov Chemical plant has deposited more than 90,000 cubic meters of toxic waste (among heavy metals and derivates of chemical weapons) in the north part of Bratislava called Podunajske Biskupice. However in the 1990's with the launch of Gabcikovo dam the ground water level increased and with it the burried waste became flooded. After 20 years, the steel barells rusted away and the contaminated material started to leak out into the ground water and spread across the area.

The official authorities are ignoring the severity of the situation and nobody is searching for effective solutions in remove the toxic waste and stop further contamination. The toxic leakage is spreading south-west towards Hungary with the speed of approximately 1m/day. If no steps are made, Europe is facing another environmental catastrophy of global dimensions. Today the Georgi Dimitrov Chemical plant is deserted, and may also contain an unknown amount of deposited chemicals.

Please find attached an official study discussing the details of this environmental accident. An OCR translation software was used to translate the documents from Slovak to English.

If you have any questions or difficulties translating the study, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I am looking forward to your reply,

With Best Regards,
Peter Havasi

adrian Hi,

I have a question regarding the Air Quality Index
http://www.eea.europa.eu/themes/air/air-quality-index/index

I would like to know if there is a database with the air quality measures per day and by station/city or if there is any service like an API from which I can access to this information. I am interested in Spain but if this information is available for all countries that would be perfect.

Taking a deeper look to the EEA website I have found several databases but I could not find anyone with those requirements: the air quality measures per day and by station/city.

Thank you very much for your time and attention.

Best,

hburridge Dear Sir/Madam,
I am a researcher working in the natural materials innovation group at the University of Cambridge. We are writing a review paper about the potential to enhance the use of wood in construction. As part of this we are investigating the role of forests. A map:
http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/average-annual-precipitation
which I believe might have been created by your organisation is of great interest to me. I would very much like to include a copy of your map within our article, obviously with the appropriate citations and acknowledgements. I wonder if you could help me with this or put me in touch with someone who might be able to?
With the very best regards, Henry.
Dr Henry Burridge.

rojah Please update some of the content on the welcome page for transport, to fit to new data.

link to the page:
https://www.eea.europa.eu/themes/transport
Please update the link and figures to the "Share of greenhouse gas emissions per transport mode" to the newer data. On the website there is the 2016's data. It's quite hard to find, because the title of the figure differs a bit, but there is newer data: https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/share-of-transport-ghg-emissions-2

cbroughton Hello,
I am looking for some hail datasets. In particular I'm interested in the data behind the following publication:
https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/assessment
Is this data publicly available (for commercial use), and if so, how would I obtain this?
If there any any other publicly available datasets relating to hail for commercial use, that would be of interest also.
Thanks,
Caroline
