Dear all,

I am a researcher at Goethe University Frankfurt. I am looking for daily air pollution data on a country-level and was very happy to find you website
Unfortunately, I am currently unable do download the daily data, whereas this was possible last week.

I wanted to kindly ask for your help with this problem. Also, if you have recommendations where to find daily air-quality data for non-European countries I would be extremely happy. Usually, data sources I found were commercial and thus costly.

Kind regards
Lennart Kraft

Dear M. 'LenKra,

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

The dataset that you are referring to seems to be operational on our side. Please note that for 2019 and 2020, the parameter 'Source' should be E2a (or All) in order to get a result. If you still experience some problems, please don't hesitate to get back to us by mentioning the specific queries and information that you are looking for. You may include links for convenience.

With kind regards,

Dear M. 'LenKra,

Thank you for your message. Please see below the answer from our IT department:

The requested URL specify year from and to as 2020 to 2019. This needs to be the other way around.
