New European Hydrometric Data Management Specification Published

A new European Technical Specification on the Management of Observed Hydrometric Data has been published by CEN. The document was developed by CEN TC/318 through a European Working Group led by Harry Dixon from the NRFA. It gives recommendations for the management of observed hydrometric data, including precipitation, water level, volumetric and discharge data and has been deigned to improve the quality and consistence of such data across Europe. The European Technical Specification accompanies a British Standard published in 2014 which provides more detailed recommendations from a national perspective.
