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,

gbonafe Hi. In your interactive map providing near-real-time information about air pollution (http://www.eea.europa.eu/themes/air/air-quality-index) the Italian monitoring stations are always grey ("No data"). As far as I know, the Italian Institute ISPRA will start sending the data in few weeks. Nevertheless, I wonder if this will be enough to calculate the Air Quality Index for most of the Italian monitoring stations. As explained in your webpage, "the index is calculated for those stations which measure at least the three pollutants NO2, O3 and PM" and "PM10 and PM2.5 values are based on 24-hour running means". Therefore, if I understood correctly, no AQI is calculated for the stations which do not measure PM on hourly basis. Unfortunately, in most of the Italian regions, almost all measures of PM are daily concentrations, not hourly. So will Italy continue to be gray?

pavla Hi, I would like to know what are the regulations for countries in European Union regarding heating with burning firewoods. I live in Slovenia and have exteme difficulties because regulations and law is suitable for people who use wet firewoods or especially tree branches.

I have about 8 months of extremely polluted air in a village where I live. We cannot open a window more than maybe an hour or two a day. Most people use type of firewoods that doesn't make big white or violet smoke, but there are always many neighbours who doesn't care for the quality of air and pollute entire village. They simply go to the forrest and get all branches they find and burn them every day for at least 8 months a year not just in cold winter days.

I would like to know since slovenian ministry for environment and spatial planing doesn't have any particular law regarding proper use of these firefoods and misuse of other elements, if there is any law in Europan Union that can solve this problem?

I think about moving to other place and selling the house but that shouldn't be the good choice because I realize that only people who don't care about environment have full priviliges for their quality of life and not the people who take care about fresh and clean air.

I know that emissions in our village greatly exceeds all permited concentration of PM10 particles because it's more than ten times worse than living in a cities.

Kindly let me know if there is any solution for this problem,
Thank you,
Pavla
