Publication Fine-scale temporal characterization of trends in soil water dissolved organic carbon and potential drivers
* INCLUDES 'WHY IT MATTERS' FEATURE * This paper, published in a Special Issue of the journal Ecological Indicators to mark 20 years of data collection at ECN terrestrial sites, presents an analysis of the temporal relationships between soil solution chemistry and parameters thought to regulate Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) production. Data from both ECN and Forest Level II plots were used.

Publication Hydrochloric acid: An overlooked driver of environmental change
* INCLUDES 'WHY IT MATTERS' FEATURE * This paper by Dr Chris Evans and colleagues was stimulated originally by the detection of unexpected changes in soil pH in Moor House ECN data.

Publication Modelling impacts of atmospheric deposition and temperature on long-term DOC trends
ECN and the Forest Level II monitoring network are the UK’s only source of information on long-term change in soil water chemistry. In this study, soil solution chemistry data from three upland ECN sites and three UK ICP Forest Level II sites were modelled using the dynamic soil chemistry model, MADOC, which simulates long-term changes in carbon and nitrogen cycling and soil acidity. Results suggest that future dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentrations may exceed preindustrial levels due to nitrogen pollution, which has implications for drinking water catchment management.

Studentship: Erosion hotspots and carbon loss from upland peatlands
Durham University (UK) and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership are seeking a student for a fully-funded NERC PhD Studentship commencing October 2016.

Publication Vegetation exerts a greater control on litter decomposition than climate warming in peatlands
To compare the effects of climate warming and vegetation change on decomposition and carbon accumulation, the team led by Sue Ward (Lancaster University) conducted an experiment on peatland at the Moor House-Upper Teesdale ECN site in the North Pennines. ECN meteorological data were used.

Publication Factors influencing the release of dissolved organic carbon and dissolved forms of nitrogen from a small upland headwater during autumn runoff events
This paper asesses the relative importance of the principal factors influencing the release of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and dissolved forms of nitrogen (N) from a small upland headwater (the Birnie Burn at Glensaugh) during a sequence of autumn runoff events.
