CEH are the leading UK organisation for long-term monitoring of the environment – measuring all aspects of the water cycle, soils, greenhouse gases, and ecology. These long-term datasets are essential for improved quantification, understanding and modelling of the land surface and its response to change both in the UK and overseas, ultimately informing managers and policymakers of better options for a broad range of environmental challenges. We operate a large number of continuous environmental field monitoring stations, including weather stations, river water quality and flow monitoring, and state-of-the-art eddy covariance systems.
