anicol Topic : Does the plastic pollution of the seas come from the rivers ?
Is the Mediterraean sea polluted ? (see
https://www.wwf.fr/mediterranee-pollution-plastique ). According to my readings, this pollution comes from the rivers and it seems logic to look for the sources of such a pollution and for the solutions. In Netherland, an ecological organization has built a barge to collect plastic in a rivers.
 What about collecting wastes from a barge in the rivers (at the least in their estuary) before being in the seas or the oceans ? (is it possible ? for the most polluted rivers ?)
I can imagine that the European Countries are not the only ones to be responsible of the pollution of the mediterranean sea...

anicol Topic : map of the Bath water quality
I have discovered your site, through the Natura2000 project. Thank you for your remarkable work. The Data and maps you give are serious and recent (it is so difficult to obtain recent data at the local or national scale, so I didn't expect to find a so rigourous work at european scale !).
1) the natural sites with poor water quality.
the legend gives several colors : from dark blue for good quality, then blue, green, red, to grey for not evaluated. Is it possible to zoom directly on the sites with bad level of bathing water quality ? For example, the map indicates that in 2019, in France, there is 54 sites for the red color (54 sites with poor quality) : what are these 54 sites ?
2) bathing water : in the see or ocean / in a lake or a river
Is it possible to know what are the pollutants on each specific "bathing sites" ? As the sites with a poor quality (or insufficient quality or forbidden sites) are rare, is it possible to get the information about the reasons of the bad quotation (or interdiction). The countries without any maritim coast (Hungary for example), or with many coasts (Netherland) do not have the same polluting risks.
3) honesty of the countries
The example of Tchernobyl stay in our memory : a country wich detects a big pollution would be attempted to cover up the bad results. Who makes the measurements : an independant european agency with local employees ? a national agency ? After Techrnobyl (the russian site), the information was "there is a big problem in Russia, but the european countries are not concerned by this pollution, because the clouds didn't cross the borders".
Another example : if a country like Italy or Greece is very touristic, the announcement of bad results concerning the bath water would be deplorable and would explain the reasons to truncate some bad results.

sven_c Hello,
I am working on water quality in European rivers. I try to collect data on BOD but I need the location of the station collecting the data. I found this image:
https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/overview-of-soe-monitoring-stations
My question is whether a shapefile exists with the location of the monitoring stations in the EU rivers. At some point I will have to connect the data on water quality data with data on quantity (discharge). Does this list also include the stations collecting data on water quantity in rivers (https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/waterbase-quantity-monitoring-stations-1)?

cbroughton Hello,
I am looking for some hail datasets. In particular I'm interested in the data behind the following publication:
https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/assessment
Is this data publicly available (for commercial use), and if so, how would I obtain this?
If there any any other publicly available datasets relating to hail for commercial use, that would be of interest also.
Thanks,
Caroline

Gab_Gaff Hi,
I was just wondering why Norway (NO) are included in the WISE Water Framework Directive data viewer (
https://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/dashboards/wise-wfd )? I guess it is probably because even though they are not part of the EU they choose to implement certain policies (such as those related to the environment) and therefore it is an additional data source. But can you please provide an official answer?
Thanking you in advance.
Kind regards,
Gabriel
