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

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.
