The databases on air quality, air emission and climate change are used in EEA reports and in the annual EU inventory
submissions by the European Commission to the two UN conventions FCCC and CLRTAP.
The data can be accessed through the EEA Data service or through this web site.
The European air quality database system. It contains, next to multi-annual time series of measurement data and their statistics for a representative selection of stations throughout Europe, also meta-information on the monitoring stations, their networks and the measured pollutants. The data origin from national reports within the context of EoI and EuroAirnet.
Annual European air quality maps for urban and rural background concentrations, primarily based on interpolation of AirBase station data.
The questionnaire for annual reporting by EU countries on ambient air quality assessment under the air quality directive. Member States assess their air quality using measurements, modelling or other empirical techniques and report on individual exceedances of limit and target values.
National reports on exceedances of ozone concentration exceedances in the lower levels of the atmosphere for the latest summer season above the limits set in the 3rd daughter directive of the EU Air Quality Framework Directive.
A air quality models catalogue and meta infromation database set up to provide guidance to model users in the selection of the most appropriate model for his or her application.
Databases which cover emission data of EEA member countries and for the EU as a whole, for all source sectors that should be reported under several international and EU obligations:
UNECE - National
emissions to the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP Convention)
UNECE - LRTAP Convention and its Protocols. Data on air pollutants are acidifying and eutrophying pollutants and ozone precursors SO2, NOx, NH3, VOC, CO, CH4, fine particulates, heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants)
EU - National Emission Ceilings (NEC) Inventory
EU - NEC. Data reported under Directive 2001/81/EC on National Emission Ceilings for certain pollutants (NECs) setting upper limits for each Member State for the total emissions in 2010 of the four pollutants responsible for acidification, eutrophication and ground-level ozone pollution (SO2, NOx, VOCs and ammonia).
Greenhouse gases emissions (CO2, N2O, CH4, Fluorinated gases): See at Climate Change.
CEPMEIP for emissions of particulates in Europe for base-year 1995, including proposed emission factors to support countries in estimating particulate emission data within the CRLTAP reporting requirements.
The TRENDS database provided is the part of a system that calculates a range of environmental pressures due to transport. It includes environmental pressures by air emissions from the four main transport modes, i.e. road, rail, ships and air in the 15 countries of the European Union.
Data on greenhouse gas emissions and removals, sent by countries to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Kyoto Protocol, and the EU Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Mechanism (EU Member States).
