UK Environmental Change Network (ECN) stream water chemistry data: 1992-2012

Stream water chemistry data from the UK Environmental Change Network (ECN) terrestrial sites. Variables measured include pH, conductivity, alkalinity, aluminium, calcium, chloride, ammonium, nitrate nitrogen, phosphate phosphorous, potassium, sulphate sulphur, sodium, total nitrogen and total dissolved phosphorous. The data are collected by dip samples at ECN's terrestrial sites (where there is a stream present) using a standard protocol. They represent continuous weekly records from 1992 to 2012.

The sites at which these data are collected are: Cairngorms, Glensaugh, Moor House-Upper Teesdale, North Wyke, Rothamsted, Sourhope, Wytham and Y Wyddfa (Snowdon).

ECN is the UK's long-term environmental monitoring programme. It is a multi-agency programme sponsored by a consortium of fourteen government departments and agencies. These organisations contribute to the programme through funding either site monitoring and/or network co-ordination activities. These organisations are: 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.

Provenance & quality

Water chemistry data from the UK Environmental Change Network (ECN) terrestrial sites. These data are collected by dip samples at all of ECN's terrestrial sites (where there is a stream present) using a standard protocol. They represent continuous weekly records from 1992 to 2012. Temporal extent of the dataset represents the earliest date on which data was collected relating to this dataset, and does not necessarily represent the date that all sites included in this dataset initiated data collection. All data collected are managed by the ECN Data Centre at CEH Lancaster according to defined protocols (http://www.ecn.ac.uk/measurements/terrestrial/wc).
