Dear EEA,
I would like to access the hourly air quality measurements at all available background stations, prior to 2013. How can I proceed to get it?
Thank you

Dear anac,

Thank you for your question and your interest in the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The agency offices are closed for the holidays from Friday, 21 December and when work resumes it may take a while longer to answer your enquiry than we usually strive for. Please bear with us and happy Christmas to you.

Dear anac,

Measurements from before 2013 can be found as raw data at this link: https://www.eea.europa.eu/d[…]ean-air-quality-database-8.
This is an older database and the station codes used are different from the codes in the current eReporting system so the data may not be directly comparable between databases.

The EEA is working on migrating the old data into the current system and expect to have this task completed in the coming months. After this is done, measurements before and after 2013 can be found in the same place and will be formatted congruently.

Best regards,
EEA Enquiry Service

Good day, I have a query related to this. I have collected pre and post 2013 AirBase data together for a few stations and when looking at annual means, there appears to be a large shift in the series between 2012 and 2013 (most evident for NO2 but also for SO2). Is there a possibility that data collection/processing may have changed between 2012 and 2013 and that this is the result of a technical issue rather than a "real" shift in the data?

Apologies, I forgot to specify - I am looking at data that has been pre-aggregated by EEA - AIDE F for post 2013, I assume the same for pre-2013 as it is too supplied as pre-aggregated indicators.
