DATASET

National discharge / water level monitoring

Collection: CEMS-EFAS : European Flood Awareness System 

Description

This data set contains discharge and/or water level information of the past 24 hours as delivered by national data providers across Europe. For some stations also the national alert level(s) are provided.

This dataset provides a pan-European overview on the real-time hydrological observations across European rivers. The distribution of stations are rather heterogenic with a good coverage over Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Norway, Sweden as well as the Danube river basin. The number of national alert levels varies between zero and four depending on the data provider.

The update frequency of this data set is daily; and the spatial coverage is the extended geographic Europe.
