Automatic lake monitoring buoys – CEH (UK)
We maintain six automatic lake monitoring stations within the UK (four in Cumbria, Loch Leven in Scotland and Llyn Conwy in Wales). Three feature state-of-the-art depth profiling systems. Each monitoring buoy carries a range of meteorological instruments, including air temperature, solar radiation, wind speed and direction and relative humidity.
Finnish Marine Research Infrastructure - FINMARI – a.o. SYKE (FI)
Finnish Marine Research Infrastructure (FINMARI) combines all major components of the Finnish marine research community. It is a distributed infrastructure network of field stations, research vessels and multi-purpose icebreakers, laboratory facilities, ferryboxes, fixed measurement platforms and buoys.
FINMARI, coordinated by the Marine Research Centre of SYKE, allies research infrastructure of 4 Finnish research institutes, 3 universities, and a state-owned shipping company.
Geophysics facilities on land and at sea – Deltares (NL)
Geophysics facilities on land and at sea. Deltares has a unique facility for geophysics that consists of wide range of technologies for collecting data about the subsurface on land and at sea, but also about the seabed. Geophysics comprises the non-destructive on-site measuring and monitoring technologies used to study the subsurface and the surface.
Hofsjökull Cryonet site - IMO (IS)
Integrated scientific/observation laboratory around the Hofsjökull glacier. In addition to variety of monitoring infrastructure including weather, hydrometric, mass balance, GPS, and snow cover stations, the IMO’s staff offers significant scientific and field logistic knowledge regarding glacier monitoring.
NTUA's hydrological monitoring network is operational since 2005. It consists of more than 10 stations located in the greater Athens area, measuring all hydrometeorological parameters. This website provides access to a single database, which will gradually incorporate further stations and hydrological measurements, including the ones of the Experimental Basin of Athens - XBasin. User is able to locate hydrometeorological stations on the map, download historic time series and use advanced applications such as calculating surface area charts and bioclimatic indiicators
Land-ocean interactions - NIVA (NO)
To facilitate research on land-ocean NIVA has established a new infrastructure in a river-fjord system (Storelva river – Sandnesfjord) close to Tvedestrand in Aust-Agder County. The infrastructure consists of two monitoring stations with continuous measurements of several physical and chemical variables; one is located at the outlet of river Storelva; the other in the middle fjord basin. In addition, a weather station is established close to the fjord station.
Large-scale experiments in marine environments - NIVA (NO)
The research facility at Solbergstrand located in the Drøbak Strait, just south of Oslo performs large-scale experiments in marine ecology, sediment research and aquaculture. We also test technology for treating ballast water.
Ljubljanica River experimental catchment monitoring system - Uni-Ljubjana (SLO)
The Ljubljanica River catchment is an example of hydrologically highly heterogeneous catchment (karstic hydrogeological characteristics, torrential characteristics, lowland Ljubljanica River moor area). Hydrological and hydraulic experimental monitoring system covers several sub-catchments of different sizes. The monitoring system consists of the field equipment owned by: University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering and Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia (ARSO).
Long term ecological monitoring - NIVA (NO)
The ecological monitoring site Langtjern is a forested lake catchment in south-eastern Norway at circa 500 to 700m elevation. The catchment has not been disturbed by any direct human interference since early in the 20th century. Therefore, it is well-suited to study natural responses of water chemistry, element cycles and biology to large scale changes in our environment such as deposition of pollutants and climate change.
Mobile laboratory unit (Mobile Van) – NTUA (GR)
It is equipped with necessary instruments for measuring hydrologic, hydrometeorologic and hydro-geologic parameters.
Measurements from hydrologic stations, mobile van and experimental catchment are directly uploaded to the web for public information and used for undergraduate and postgraduate studies, theses and dissertations
