Simulated monthly biological indicators for England and Wales 1964-2012

Monthly time series of simulated de-trended/de-seasonalised biological indicators at 86 bio-monitoring sites in England and Wales based on the modelled response of these indicators to discharge (represented by a standardised streamflow index, SSI) at 76 paired gauging stations. The biological indicators include:

(i) Average Score per Taxon (ASPT)
(ii) Lotic-invertebrate Index for Flow Evaluation (LIFE) calculated at family-level (LIFE Family)
(iii) LIFE calculated at species-level (LIFE Species).

The simulation spans the period 1964-2012.
