Site types that use this protocol

Terrestrial

In common with a large number of sites in the UK, all ECN sites have some historic meteorological data, many of which have been collected to meet the criteria of the Meteorological Office.  Standard meteorological observations are made at many of ECN's sites in order to preserve the continuity of these historic data and to provide calibration and back-up for the ECN automatic weather stations.

Our field activities

SEPTEMBER

This is the last of the busy months in terms of field work at terrestrial sites as the season for monitoring butterflies, frogs, grazing animals and bats draws to an end. In rivers and lakes we sample diatoms for the third time in the year. The usual year-round measurements are also made.
