Site types that use this protocol

Terrestrial

All our terrestrial sites collect meteorological (weather) data using automatic weather stations (AWSs). These allow meteorological data to be collected at frequent intervals over long time periods, and are particularly suited to sites that are geographically remote, making manual meteorological recording unfeasible.

Our field activities

AUGUST

At terrestrial sites evening bat monitoring continues and we also sample for spittle bugs using sweep nets. In rivers and lakes we sample aquatic macrophytes (water plants visible to the naked eye). The usual year-round measurements are also made.
