ECN is featured in NERC's Planet Earth magazine & website
Update: Article now available on Planet Earth Online: http://planetearth.nerc.ac.uk/features/story.aspx?id=1675
Written by Andy Sier of the ECN Central Coordination Unit, the feature explains why long-term ecosystem observation is critical for us to understand environmental change.
After briefly describing when and why the network was first established, the article presents examples of how ECN has contributed to the scientific evidence base underpinning some key environmental issues, including long-range air pollution, the impacts of climate change on invertebrates and dissolved organic matter in water supplies.
The feature concludes by highlighting the need to work with a broad range of other environmental recording programmes, integrating different datasets to ensure ECN continues to play an important role in the decades to come.
