UK Acid Waters Monitoring Network
|ECN site(s) managed||
The United Kingdom Acid Waters Monitoring Network (UK AWMN), funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), was established in 1988 to monitor the chemical and ecological impact of acid deposition in areas of the UK believed to be sensitive to acidification. Over twenty years on, its data-base provides an extremely valuable long-term record of water chemistry and biology which is unique for upland freshwater systems in the UK.
The AWMN is currently coordinated by ENSIS / Environmental Change Research Centre, UCL (ECRC). See the full list of AWMN collaborators.
