The European Environment Agency (EEA) provides publicly available geo-data which can be used for environmental modelling in the EU. In the case of water quality data provided by the Water Information System in Europe (WISE) - which was created applying the Water Framework Directive (WFD) - has the potential to be used for higher tier aquatic risk assessment. Notably the discharge time series can be used for setting up hydrological models.
In this study we present an application of the WISE dataset combined with additional EU wide data of climate (MARS), hydrological catchments (CCM2) and land use (Capri) for the Meuse basin as an example.
