A United Kingdom Lake Ecological Obsevatory Network

Project: Funded ProjectResearch


UKLEON is a 3-year project funded by the NERC Sensor network programme. The primary technological objective of UKLEON is to establish the UK’s first coordinated, high-intensity lake monitoring network, based on an information system that will receive, process, quality control and disseminate limnological data delivered by an integrated instrumented network of automatic lake monitoring stations deploying state-of-the-art, self-cleaning sensors.

The scientific objectives will be delivered via three inter-linked demonstration science projects:real-time forecasting of lake behaviour; the effect of meteorology on the fate of carbon within lakes; the level of regional coherence in lake response on sub-seasonal timescales.
