Dear EEA,
I'm using AirBase data on air pollution. Are these really raw data? More specifically, I'm looking at the case of Spain. Spain suffers from Sahara Dust and makes calculations on how this affects PM10 (See http://origin.magrama.gob.es/[…]/Naturales.aspx and http://origin.magrama.gob.es/[…]/anuales.aspx )
Are these corrections applies before the measurements are added to AirBase? Or are these corrections made afterwards? And if they are made before, would it be possible to deliver raw data, as I'm interested in true PM10 and not a version which eliminates PM10 from natural sources?
Thank you very much.

The latest version of AirBase data set (published in March 2014) can be found at: http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/airbase-the-european-air-quality-database-8

Raw data files are available from the section “Data by country”, more specifically raw data for Spain can be found within the archive called “AirBase_ES_v8.zip”.

We have our latest “AQ e-Reporting” data set available at: http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/aqereporting this could be pointed out to our client.

Measurement data are raw data i.e. not corrected for natural sources. Correction is performed at a later stage when comparison is done with the LVs. Thus values in Airbase were corrected in post-processing to determine attainments.
