bas Hi there! I am looking for recent air quality data for European cities, in order to asses the effects of the recent lockdowns. Unfortunately, the data I access through the open data portal (http://discomap.eea.europa.eu/map/fme/AirQualityExport.htm) is a few days behind for most cities, whereas local institutions publish their measurements within the hour. Does anybody know what the refresh rate is of this database, or where I can find near-real time data?

MalteG Dear EAA Team

I am working on a research project on the environmental impact of mining in Europe. I therefore used the PRTR register to find the pollutant emissions from the NACE section B (Mining and Quarrying).

Now I notice a relatively strong discrepancy between the PRTR data and the data provided by eurostat (
https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/de/data/database). Using the example of NOX emissions in 2015, according to PRTR (ReportingYear 2015; Excluding Norway, Switzerland, Serbia and Iceland, NACE activities 05.10 - 09.90), there has been an output of 53,544 tons of NOX. According to the eurostat database (same countries, NACE section "Mining and quarrying") the output was 122,821 tons of NOX.
These deviations seem to occur for other pollutant parameters as well.

Now the question to the experts: Why do the data deviate by the relatively large factor of more than 2? Is this discrepancy known? And finally, which datasource is more reliable in terms of the possibility to relate pollutant outputs to certain industrial sectors and shall be used by scientists/decision makers etc.?

Looking forward to your reply. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards
Malte

proche On the https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/up-to-date-air-quality-data graoh, data is no longer available in the Republic of Ireland after January 23th at 17:00.

Will this be updated soon or has this data stream been stopped totally?

I was downloading annual statistics from your service "Air quality statistics calculated by the EEA (F)"
at
http://aidef.apps.eea.europa.eu

and few monhts ago, for ozone, I downloaded also SOMO35...
while now SOMO35 is not available anymore

are you going to make it available again?
I am interested in 2015 data for all Europe

Thanks
Kind regards
Enrico

rlenskens I am studying the contents of the dataset on https://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/natura-1 about Natura 2000 areas. The areas are classified from A to K and I would like to know what these classifications mean.
