ECN e-News - Latest news from ECN |
Dear <<First Name>>,

Here's the latest news from the UK Environmental Change Network.There's a lot more information about ECN on our website, including details of our long-term monitoring and research sites, the measurements we make and ECN-related publications.

ECN Snowdon's site manager filmed on location for ITV programme

Filming for Coast & Country (ITV) at the ECN Snowdon siteECN Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa's site manager, Vic Bowmaker (Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru / Natural Resources Wales) was on site last week with a film crew from ITV's Coast and Country. During the interview, which took place in challenging, windy weather conditions, Vic was able to show the value of ECN's long-term monitoring sites, She talked about NRW's monitoring work and the importance of evidence to understand environmental change. She also discussed our changing climate. Hopefully Vic's moment of stardom will make it to the final programme!

ECN sites - outdoor laboratories at which to study our changing environment
The wide range of regular environmental measurements, wealth of historical data and local knowledge of site managers mean that many ECN sites, such as mountainous Snowdon, agricultural Hillsborough (pictured) and wooded Alice Holt are excellent locations for field environmental research and teaching.

Discover ECN long-term datasets

ECN data graphic Our longest running terrestrial ECN sites began operating in 1992, making 1993 the first complete year of data collection. ECN data including meteorology, soil solution chemistry, atmospheric nitrogen, butterflies, moths, beetles, bats, bird and vegetation can be downloaded for free from the CEH Environmental Information Platform under an Open Government Licence. If you are engaged in ecosystem research or teaching, why not see if these datasets could support your work? Use the link below to quickly access our unique physical, chemical and biological datasets containing the complete run of data available from our terrestrial sites. Data for seven of the sites span the entire 23 year period up to 2015.

Going to EGU this April? Come and meet European LTER!

EGU logoThe annual meeting of the European Geophysical Union will take place from 7-12 April 2019 in Vienna, Austria, bringing together geoscientists from around the globe and once again, European Long-Term Ecosystem Research (eLTER) will be represented at the meeting. If you are going to EGU, be sure to find them on the ENVRIPlus Booth - numbers 2+3 - in the Exhibition Hall. There you will be able to hear about the exciting plans for eLTER RI, a new European Research Infrastructure, as well discover a range of other European environmental research infrastructures. ECN is contributing to the development of eLTER.

Featured Site

Moor House - Upper Teesdale This site lies in the North Pennine uplands of England. It is England's highest and largest terrestrial National Nature Reserve. Habitats include exposed summits, blanket peatlands, upland grasslands, pastures, hay meadows and deciduous woodland. A large part of the catchment of the River Tees, from its source near Great Dun Fell to High Force waterfall, is included in the reserve. The Trout Beck, which has its catchment entirely within the Moor House National Nature Reserve, is an ECN Freshwater Site.
