Daily Temperature data from the UK Upland Water Monitoring Network (UKUWMN) standing waters monitoring programme

This dataset and associated Shiny App (https://scotland.shinyapps.io/sg-srtmn-data/) were developed to allow users to visualise quality controlled data from standing waters monitored as part of the UK Upland Waters Monitoring Network (UWMN).

The UWMN was initially established as the UK Acid Water Monitoring Network (UKAWMN) in 1988 to provide information on status and trends in the chemistry and biology of upland waters in response to atmospheric deposition of acidifying pollutants. In recent years the network was diversified and is a valuable resource for understanding the effects of multiple stressors on upland freshwater environments, including climate change. Continuous temperature monitoring was added to the network to support this broader remit and includes monitoring of loch temperatures at a range of depths.

Information on the UWMN can be found here: http://uwmn.defra.gov.uk/

Collaborators: Many collaborators have facilitated, funded or contributed data to the UWMN. This includes; Environmental Change Research Centre, Department of Geography, University College London (UCL), Marine Scotland Science Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory (MSS-FFL), Environmental Scientific Services (ENSIS) trust fund, UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), The Forestry Commission, Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Natural Resources Wales (NRW), Natural History Museum London, School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, Queen Mary University of London, The Department of the Environment, Northern Ireland, The Environment Agency, The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, The Scottish Government, Scottish Natural Heritage, Welsh Government
