Explanation
  • Icon color indicates status for information found on observing station data availability: blue = uncertain or no updated information; purple = updated information on archived data; orange = NRT data available; red = NRT and archived data available.
  • Click on icon to see metadata on NRT and Archived data
  • Expand the Rivers entry in the Places menu to view comments to the data entries.

  • GTN-R station catalog, ECOOP subset: These are stations identified for participation in the Global Terrestrial Network for River Discharge (GTN-R) project. Aims to harmonize information on near real time discharge data. The xls file is a subset containing just the stations relevant for ECOOP.
  • GRDC stations for Google Earth: Shows stations in the GRDC metadata base. Limit the view to individual countries by checking individual boxes in the Places menu of Google Earth.

Activity Description (Annex I 6.1)

S2.5.1: Assessment of existing river run-off data

Objectives: To gain an overview of available data and to select an initial set of data for use in ECOOP.

Description: River runoff data will include volume transport and nutrient/pollutant loads, suitable for use in coastal and shelf seas monitoring and forecasting. Both archived time series and data sources with near-real-time (NRT) availability will be sought. The Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) will be an important source of information. The partners will obtain additional information from the regional association memberships. The information will be collated into catalogues, regional and pan-European?, that will be available to coastal users. From the catalogue entries, an optimal list of observation stations for rivers influencing the coastal and regional seas will be made (ECOOP River Station Lists). From the optimal list, the initial NRT data sets for the “ECOOP Data Management System“ will be identified; these include the major rivers in each region for which there are NRT data readily available.

Work Package Description (Annex I 8.5)

  • Evaluate the river runoff data, regional and pan-European, including volume transport and nutrient/pollutant loads.
  • Investigate the availability of both archived time series and data sources with near-real-time (NRT).
  • Use as an important source of information the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC). Add additional information from the regional association memberships.
  • Catalogue the information to be available to coastal users.
  • Establish an optimal list of observation stations for rivers influencing the coastal and regional seas (ECOOP River Station Lists).
  • Define an optimal list of the initial NRT data sets for the “ECOOP Data Management System”.
