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

APRIL

In April we start carrying out almost all the ECN measurements, though the weather is not always kind! At freshwater sites we sample diatoms and invertebrates.
