This report by the Countryside Council for Wales (now Natural Resources Wales) highlights results from monitoring and research undertaken over the first 15 years of work at the Welsh long-term Environmental Change Network site on Snowdon. The site was established in 1995 and work continues there to the present day.
After 15 years of recording, results are emerging which suggest a level of change greater than the year-to-year variation typically seen in our environment. Changes have been recorded in temperature, atmospheric pollutant and land management, all with resultant impacts on the environment.
The report is available in English and Welsh.
When the report was launched in February 2012, it received some press interest, including radio and TV coverage. See also these online news articles:
