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

JUNE

June is one of ECN's busiest months. In addition to the many other measurements, we start summer bat monitoring at terrestrial sites, and survey for spittle bugs. At freshwater sites, routine water sampling continues and we also sample diatoms this month.
