Site types that use this protocol

Terrestrial

Water samples collected at ECN sites are analysed by several laboratories. Whilst each laboratory has full responsibility for managing its own analytical resources, participating laboratories have an obligation to conduct analyses under controlled conditions, and to provide documentation of methodology, information about significant changes in methodology, and information about validation procedures. This document sets out guidelines for laboratory water sample analyses.

Note: this was formerly the AG protocol.

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.
