UK ECN launches new website

News of a new website for the UK Environmental Change Network

The UK Environmental Change Network - the UK's long-term ecosystem research and monitoring (LTER) network - has launched a new website ( For many years ECN's old website provided a wealth of information including free access to summary and full datasets, information about a range of environmental indicators and details of our monitoring and research sites. However, the site needed a facelift.

The new site, which has a new, modern look, also provides detailed information about ECN, with sections on what we do, our science, the measurements we make, environmental indicators and publications. Features include improved site searching, easier navigation, RSS news feeds and an events calendar.

To reflect the fact that ECN now manages data from a range of UK networks in addition to ECN, we have also launched a new Data Centre website (, linked to the main ECN website. This site provides a data discovery service and tools for plotting summary data. It is also possible to access full datasets from this site.
