Pond quality metrics from the Glastir Monitoring and Evaluation Programme, Wales 2013-2016

This data set consists of freshwater pond quality data for sites across Wales between 2013 and 2016. Data include macrophyte species records, chemistry and water quality metrics, and environmental variables such as pollution, grazing and management from surveyed ponds. Ponds were surveyed within a set of up to 300 x 1km squares across Wales (not all sites contained pond features), collected as part of the Glastir Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (GMEP).
The monitoring programme was set up by the Welsh Government in 2013 to monitor the effects of the Glastir agri-environment scheme on the environment and ran from 2013 to 2016. The field survey element was based on a stratified random sampling design of 300 x 1km square sites across Wales, and was managed by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology.

Provenance & quality

The data were recorded using electronic data capture devices in the summers of 2013-2016 by professional surveyors. Data were recorded from up to 300 x 1km squares sited across Wales, selected by random stratified sample. The survey was managed by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. Standardised methodologies were applied throughout.
To ensure confidentiality of the data with respect to land owners and managers, the locations of 1km squares and survey sites were converted to the centres of the containing 10km Ordnance Survey grid squares.
