Environmental monitoring data from upland and lowland blanket peatland in the Flow Country, Scotland, 2017-2019

The datasets contains monthly environmental data from HOBO dataloggers which were used to measure precipitation, air temperature, Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR), soil moisture, soil temperature and water level relative to surface from 6 points in 1km2 of upland (RSPB Forsinard Knockfin Heights) and 6 points in a 1km2 of lowland (Plantlife Munsary) blanket peatland within the Flow Country, Caithness and Sutherland.

Data was obtained every 15 mins between September 2017 and November 2018 covering the 2018 European Drought Event.
