Monitoring, data and research to understand environmental change
Resources supporting environmental research and education
Themes we are relevant to
ECN is a UK-based multi-agency programme with funding and monitoring from a consortium of UK government departments and agencies. The network is coordinated by staff at the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH). UKCEH manage the data generated by the programme, which are stored in a central database and are made available for research and education.
Our monitoring supports scientific research addressing a range of environmental issues concerning the interacting effects of pressures from air pollution, climate change and land use change. The features above ('themes') describe specific environmental research supported by ECN long-term datasets and form our Why the research matters series.
The UKCEH component of ECN (i.e. network coordination and UKCEH site monitoring) is National Capability, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council via UKCEH's UK-SCAPE National Capability Programme.
