The ECN is a UK-wide monitoring network dedicated to investigating how our environment changes over time. The network provides information on the characteristics of ecosystems, how they function and how they change. Monitoring a wide range of parameters in an integrated way gives us an important insight into the impacts of environmental change, including climate change.

After 15 years of recording, results are emerging which suggest a level of change greater than the levels of year-to-year variation typically seen in our environment. Changes have been recorded in temperature, atmospheric pollutants and land management, all with resultant impacts on the environment.

In Wales, CCW works in partnership with the Welsh Government to run Wales’ only joint freshwater and terrestrial ECN site. It is located on the eastern slopes of Snowdon and covers an area of 715ha. The monitoring and research on this site helps deliver information on the changing environment of both Wales and the UK as a whole.
