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

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.
