Environmental Change Network (ECN) data holdings

The Environmental Change Network (ECN) is the UK's long-term, integrated environmental monitoring and research programme. They collect, analyse and interpret a wide range of long-term data from a network of sites. ECN's physical, chemical and biological datasets - some spanning two decades - are a unique national resource that is improving our understanding of how and why environments change.

The Environmental Change Network is a partnership between Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute, Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru - Natural Resources Wales, Defence Science & Technology Laboratory, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Environment Agency, Forestry Commission, Llywodraeth Cymru - Welsh Government, Natural England, Natural Environment Research Council, Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Scottish Government and Scottish Natural Heritage. Data are sent to the ECN Data Centre, where they are checked and made freely available for research, education and other non-commercial purposes.

ECN also works with a wide range of other research organisations and takes a lead role in the development of long-term ecosystem research (LTER). ECN is the UK node of the International Long-Term Ecological Research Network (ILTER) and its European regional network (LTER-Europe).
