This dataset includes stream and rainfall hydrochemistry of the Plynlimon research catchments in Mid Wales. The data cover the period from March 2016 to March 2019. Sampling was carried out fortnightly from March 2016 to July 2017. From August 2017 to November 2018 stream samples were collected every four weeks and the rain sample every two weeks. From December 2018 onwards all samples were collected every four weeks. Data are presented for major anions and cations, pH, conductivity, alkalinity, in-situ measurements of water temperature and stream flow for the six stream locations, and air temperature and volume for the rainfall sites. Stream samples were taken using a grab technique and filtered in the field. Rain samples were collected using bulk precipitation collectors. Fieldwork was carried out by CEH members of staff trained in the fieldwork techniques required. Chemical analysis was carried out by qualified CEH chemists at laboratories at CEH Lancaster and CEH Bangor. The Plynlimon research catchments lie within the headwaters of the River Severn and the River Wye in the uplands of mid-Wales. Intensive and long-term monitoring within the catchments underpins a wealth of hydrological and hydro-chemical research. Monitoring is funded by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, and is ongoing since 1968. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/54fe47f3-778e-4e0b-8cf5-b2fda2473b7f
This dataset contains daily micro-meteorological data from the experimental plots at the Climoor field site in Clocaenog forest, North East Wales. The data contain air temperature, (degrees celsius) soil temperature (degrees celsius) at 2 depths (5 and 20 centimetres) and soil moisture as metre cubed per metre cubed. The data run from 01/07/2015 until 31/08/2016. Data were recorded in minute intervals. Up to January 2016 the data were then averaged hourly, after January 2016 data were averaged half hourly. Data are then to averaged to daily values, which are reported here. The dataset has been quality checked, and incorrect or missing values removed, data has not been infilled. Climoor is a climate change manipulation experiment that utilises automated roof technology to produce drought and warming experimental treatments that reflect climate change predictions for the next 20 to 30 years. The reported plot level temperature and soil moisture data are important to evaluate the effect of the imposed climatic treatments on ecosystem processes and functioning. Data were not collected between 9th October 2015 and 3rd November 2015 due to problems with the sensors. Data collection, processing and quality checking were carried out by CEH Bangor staff members.

Mean daily flow and water chemistry data collected from the Tarland Burn, recorded between 2000-2010. Water chemistry determinands measured include: total dissolved phosphorus (TDP), soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP), total phosphorous (TP), particulate phosphorus (PP), nitrate (NO3-N), ammonium (NH4-N) and suspended sediments (SS); water chemistry measurements are in units of mg l-1 for all determinands. Sampling for water chemistry took place at a weekly frequency between 2000 and the end of 2003, with some daily sampling during rainfall events. Daily samples were then collected between February 2004 and June 2005. After June 2005, infrequent irregular sampling took place, with fewer determinands. Mean daily flow, in m3s-1, was also recorded. The Tarland Burn is a tributary of the River Dee (northeast Scotland). The samples were collected at Coull (WGS84 57.111, -2.810; OSGB 351050, 802540).

This dataset contains daily automated weather station (AWS) data from the Climoor field site in Clocaenog forest, North East Wales. The data are air temperature (mean, minimum and maximum), rainfall, net radiation, solar radiation, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), wind speed and direction. The dataset has been quality checked, and incorrect or missing values removed, data has not been infilled. Data runs from 12/6/1999 until 30/06/2015, no data was collected March 2006 and June 2008. Air temperature, rainfall and wind speed and direction were recorded since June 1999. Measurements of relative humidity, air pressure, net and solar radiation and PAR started in June 2008. Since June 2008, data are recorded in minute intervals, averaged to hourly, then to daily means that are reported here. The Climoor field experiment intends to answer questions regarding the effects of warming and drought on ecosystem processes. The reported data are collected to monitor site specific environmental conditions and their development with time. These data are important to interpret results that are collected from the climate change manipulations imposed in the field.

[THIS DATASET HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN]. This data set comprises of weekly water quality monitoring data of seven sites along the River Thames, UK, and fifteen of its major tributaries from February 2009 to February 2013. Parameters measured were phosphorus and nitrogen species, dissolved reactive silicon, water temperature, pH, Gran alkalinity, suspended solids, chlorophyll and major dissolved anions (fluoride, chloride, bromide, sulphate) and cations (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, boron). Dissolved and total iron, manganese, zinc, copper concentrations have also been produced from August 2010 to February 2013. The accompanying daily river flow data are also supplied. Samples were taken as part of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology's Thames Initiative monitoring programme.

The database contains satellite images of the UK purchased by the BGS or on its behalf by NERC. It includes data from the Lansdat, SPOT, Radarsat and ERS satellites. The images are stored in proprietary format on various types of magnetic media. The data are currently stored by path-row scene numbers and as mosaics on tapes, CDs and drives. Entire UK is covered by the dataset, however, there are gaps in coverage from individual sensors. Coverage exists for countries (or parts of countries) where work has been carried out.
This dataset is part of Integrated Hydrological Units (IHU) of the UK, a set of geographical reference units for hydrological purposes including river flow measurement and hydrometric data collection. Hydrometric Areas are either integral river catchments having one or more outlets to the sea or tidal estuary, or they may include several contiguous river catchments having topographical similarity but separate tidal outlets. Hydrometric Areas are the coarsest units of the IHU in terms of spatial resolution. This dataset represents the same entities as the Hydrometric Areas with Coastline. The coastline of Hydrometric Areas without Coastline follows the boundaries of the CEH Integrated Hydrological Digital Terrain Model, from which IHU were derived, while the coastline used in Hydrometric Areas with Coastline was derived from Ordnance Survey data. The Hydrometric Areas without Coastline currently covers Great Britain only as no dataset with river geometries and names with suitable detail is available for Northern Ireland.

Gridded daily meteorological variables over Great Britain for the years 1961-2017 at 1 km resolution. This dataset contains time series of daily mean values of air temperature (K), specific humidity (kg kg-1), wind speed (m s-1), downward longwave radiation (W m-2), downward shortwave radiation (W m-2), precipitation (kg m-2 s-2) and air pressure (Pa), plus daily temperature range (K). These are the variables required to run the JULES land surface model with daily disaggregation. The data are provided in gridded netCDF files. There is one file for each variable for each month of the data set. This data set supersedes the previous version as temporal coverage has been extended to include the years 2016-2017 and the netCDF metadata has been updated and improved.

This service displays a series of datasets consisting of mean estimate distribution maps of ash trees (Fraxinus excelsior) across Great Britain. It includes ash trees in areas less than half a hectare, ash trees in woody linear features and individual ash trees. The data are derived from Countryside Survey 2007. Trees were mapped in 569 1km sample squares across Britain using a stratified random sampling system based on the ITE Land Classification. Mean national estimates were produced by scaling up from the sample data.
