  • Estimates of annual loads of phosphorus, sediment, nitrogen and faecal coliform from non-agricultural sources to rivers in Scotland, reported at Water Framework Directive (WFD) catchment scale. The sources of pollutants include: urban, woodland, montane areas, river bank erosion, septic tanks and sewage treatment works. Loads are estimated based upon available data (e.g. septic tank licences) and modelling (bank erosion). The values specify phosphorous, nitrogen or sediment losses in kilograms per year and faecal coliform in 10^6 colony forming units (cfu) per year.

  • This dataset contains water chemistry and phytoplankton cell counts collected from 3 different depths at 3 different sites in Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England, during 2018. Water samples were collected on 22 Feb, 5 Apr, 20 Apr, 30 May, 13 Jun, 27 Jun, 9 Jul, 24 Jul, 20 Aug, 21 Aug, 22 Aug, 23 Aug, 24 Aug, and 5 Oct 2018. The data available to download includes phytoplankton cell counts (cells/ml), turbidity (NTU), pH, Ammonia (mg/l), total oxidised nitrogen (mg/l) nitrite (mg/l), nitrate (mg/l), ammonium (mg/l), orthophosphate (mg/l), silica (mg/l), Potassium (mg/l), Calcium (mg/l), Geosmin (ng/l), 2-MIB (ng/l), total and soluble manganese, iron, copper, magnesium, zinc, and aluminium (all: mg/l).

  • The dataset contains light penetration through the water column at a Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. HOBO Pendant Temperature/Light 8K Data Loggers (Onset) were positioned at 0.5 m, 1.5 m, and 2.5 m depths on a temperature chain Durleigh. The loggers were deployed between 30 May 2018 and 5 October 2018. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/fc1cf9a7-d7b0-4948-8328-497d6e071950

  • This dataset consists of ammonia (NH3) measurements from a set of ALPHA (Adapted Low-cost Passive High Absorption) sampler sites at Ballynahone National Nature Reserve, a designated Area of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI), Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Ramsar (wetland of international importance designated under the Ramsar Convention) site in Northern Ireland. The park is an ammonia sensitive peatland ecosystem managed locally by Ulster Wildlife Trust (UWT). The data were originally collected due to concern that Ballynahone Bog may be adversely affected by NH3 emissions arising from local livestock installations.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until December 12, 2021]. This dataset consists of ammonia (NH3) measurements at two sites in a rural location in South Lanarkshire. The sites are located in a dwelling, one site is inside and the other is outside in the garden area . The garden backs onto grassland which is part of a large dairy farm. The ammonia measurements are taken from a set of UKCEH ALPHA® (Adapted Low-cost Passive High Absorption) samplers from November 2018 to January 2021. Samplers are exposed in monthly cycles at the beginning of each month.

  • This dataset contains water temperature measurements at 2 different locations in Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. Water temperatures were measured using RBR SoloT thermistors (measured in °C) and HOBO TidbiT v2 loggers (measured in °F). The dataset consists of water temperature measurements from 2 locations at Durleigh reservoir between 22 February 2018 and 5 October 2018. Measurements were taken at 10 minute intervals. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/25d34c83-e939-40fd-aa16-6962efb4c731

  • The dataset contains 5-day of water velocities at Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. A Nortek Vector acoustic doppler velocimeter (ADV) was used to collect the dataset. The ADV was deployed between 20 August 2018 (15:00) and 24 August 2018 (09:15), located ~ 30 m north of the surface mixers in Durleigh reservoir. The surface mixers were operating when the ADV was deployed and were switched off between 07:17 on 22 August and 16:42 on 23 August 2018.

  • Estimates of in-river concentrations (mg/l) and loads (kg/day) of nutrients to rivers in England and Wales from multiple sector sources, modelled with SAGIS (Source Apportionment GIS). The nutrients include nitrate (mg/l N) and ortho-phosphate (mg/l P); the estimate loads are expressed as kilograms per day (kg/day) and the in-river concentrations as milligrams per litre (mg/l). Sources are both diffuse and point. Diffuse sources include livestock farming, arable farming, highways, urban runoff, background (from soils), onsite wastewater treatment systems and atmospheric deposition. Point sources include treated wastewater effluent, combined sewer overflows and storm tanks, industrial discharges and mine water discharges. Concentrations and loads are modelled using the Environment Agency's catchment river model, SIMCAT, at the locations of model features or every 1 km along each river, taking into account all upstream sources and user defined river losses. SAGIS is a modelling framework was developed through the UK Water Industry Research Programme (UKWIR) project 'Chemical Source Apportionment under the WFD' [1], with support from the Environment Agency and SEPA. The model is also described in [2] [1] UKWIR (2012) Chemical Source Apportionment under the WFD (12/WW/02/3).

  • Estimates of discharged loads of nitrogen, phosphorous and fine-grained sediments to rivers in England and Wales from multiple sector sources, reported at Water Framework Directive catchment scale, from the SEctor Pollutant AppoRtionment for the AquaTic Environment (SEPARATE) modelling framework [1]. The SEPARATE framework integrates information on pollutant emissions from multiple sources to provide apportionment and summarises these estimates on the basis of the WFD cycle 2 waterbodies for England and Wales. The estimated loads are expressed as tonnes per year. Sources are both diffuse and point sources. Diffuse sources include agriculture, urban, river channel banks, atmospheric deposition; point sources include sewage treatment works, septic tanks, combined sewer overflows, storm tanks. The pollutant loads and percentages are given as cumulative values with the values from the upstream catchment. Phosphorous is reported both as dissolved phosphorous and total phosphorous.
