SEPA Sediment Monitoring sites

Dataset of 1076 sediment monitoring sites in Scotland measured by SEPA for a variety of purposes. The dataset consists of site locations in British National Grid or Lat/Long WGS84, describing aspects of each site and the monitoring activity including medium (river, marine and estuarine); purpose of the monitoring (Water Framework Directive [1], Controlled Activities Regulations [1] and Clean Seas Environmental Monitoring Programme); analytic function (including organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, metals chemistry, marine biology and invertebrates), and approximate annual frequency of the monitoring.
