The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology hosts a number of data centres and data resources on behalf of the UK research community

Environmental Information Data Centre

The Environmental Information Data Centre (EIDC) is a NERC data centre hosted by CEH. They provide access to nationally-important datasets focusing on land and freshwater ecosystems and their interaction with the atmosphere.

National River Flow Archive

The National River Flow Archive (NRFA) acts as the main focal point for hydrometric data in the UK, providing stewardship of, and access to, daily, monthly and flood peak river flow data from over 1,500 gauging stations across the UK.

Environmental Change Network

The Environmental Change Network (ECN) is the UK's long-term, integrated environmental monitoring and research programme. They collect, analyse and interpret a wide range of long-term environmental data from a network of sites. The datasets are a unique national resource that is improving our understanding of how and why environments change.

Biological Records Centre

The Biological Records Centre (BRC) is a national focus in the UK for terrestrial and freshwater species recording. BRC works closely with the voluntary recording community, principally through support of national recording schemes and societies.
