  • The datasets contains monthly environmental data from HOBO dataloggers which were used to measure precipitation, air temperature, Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR), soil moisture, soil temperature and water level relative to surface from 6 points in 1km2 of upland (RSPB Forsinard Knockfin Heights) and 6 points in a 1km2 of lowland (Plantlife Munsary) blanket peatland within the Flow Country, Caithness and Sutherland. Data was obtained every 15 mins between September 2017 and November 2018 covering the 2018 European Drought Event.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until March 31, 2023]. Location of peat cores and peat properties including moisture, bulk density, ash and organic matter content for short cores (50 cm) collected 10 month post-fire in high, medium and low severity areas within a drained and a near natural area in the footprint of a severe wildfire that impacted >6500 ha of blanket bog and wet heath in the Flow Country of Northern Scotland.

  • The dataset contains peat core data from 7 sites in a 1km2 upland (RSPB Forsinard Knockfin Heights) and 7 sites in a 1km2 of lowland (Plantlife Munsary) blanket peatland within the Flow Country, Caithness and Sutherland. Data was obtained between October 2018 and January 2019. Also included is peat depth data from Knockfin Heights at 100m spacing and Teabag Index data to assess peat decomposition rates at 47 points.

  • The datasets contain Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) measurements carried out over Caithness and Sutherland in order to measure peatland surface motion over the Flow Country using the Advanced Pixel System Intermittent Small Baseline Subset InSAR technique (APSIS InSAR). The data covers surface motion across all landcover types within the survey area. It includes timeseries of peat surface height and long term mean motion over the survey period. Data was collected on a 6-12 day basis from 12/3/2015-7/7/2019. Missing pixels are associated with low coherence and are excluded. Missing survey dates are associated with processing issues or poor coherence. Data processing was carried out by Terra Motion Ltd.

  • Dataset contains water chemistry data (pH, conductivity, dissolved carbon, dissolved gases, absorbance) from natural and artificial/restoration peat pools in Scottish peatlands. Water samples were collected seasonally from three sites, and more frequently (up to weekly) from one site, within the Flow Country. This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/J007609/1 Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/e27124dd-aef2-4fa8-b90d-32b782e21ff7

  • [This dataset is embargoed until March 22, 2023]. This dataset contains time series observations of land surface-atmosphere exchanges of net ecosystem carbon dioxide exchange (NEE), sensible heat (H) and latent heat (LE), methane (CH4) and meteorological observations measured at two locations in the Flow Country blanket bog complex, Caithness and Sutherland, UK. The tower over the area affected by wildfire after initial felling (UK-DKF) is located at 58.431, -3.96 and monitors across a footprint affected by a wildfire in early May 2019. The tower over the area felled for restoration after previous afforestation (UK-DKE-RESTORED, which was not affected by the wildfire) is located at 58.428, -3.967 and measures fluxes from a footprint identical in ground flora, topography, soil type and previous management to that of the FIRE tower, with the only exception that the fire did not reach as far as the footprint monitored. The dataset comprises eddy covariance CO2, water and energy fluxes, originally collected at 20Hz and processed to 30-minute data, as well as accompanying meteorological observations, originally collected at 15 min and processed to 30-minute data. The time period covered in this dataset is 25/09/2019 – 20/05/2021. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/d4a7ca90-0c62-4a31-986e-f433e1644bf3

  • The dataset contains water chemistry data collected from peatland headwaters across the Flow Country following a wildfire in May 2019. Samples were collected on a monthly basis from 52 sites across the region from September 2019 to October 2020. Sampling sites were selected to represent peatland catchments in the following conditions: burned near natural, burned drained, unburned near natural, unburned drained and unburned forested. Data were obtained via collection of water samples in situ, and concentrations were derived via subsequent sample processing and analysis.

  • Plot-scale percent cover of all plant species recorded between October and December 2019 in 360 1 x 1 m quadrats within two burnt areas of the 2019 Flow Country Wildfire and nearby unburnt control areas and within three additional historic burnt site with recorded wildfires in 1997, 2000 and 2011 respectively and their respective adjacent unburnt controls. At each site, quadrats were located in both “open” and “drain” plots to reflect the potential impact of artificial drainage on vegetation/fire response. For the sites within the footprint of the 2019 wildfire, fire damage data were also collected, only in burnt sites.

  • This dataset contains particulate and dissolved organic carbon concentrations, nutrients (ammonia, nitrates, phosphate), alkalinity, pH, particulate organic nitrogen, delta-C-13 and delta-15-N isotopes, fluorescence and absorbance from river water samples. Data come from 41 rivers from around Great Britain, sampled on a monthly basis during 2017. LOCATE (Land Ocean CArbon TransfEr) is a multi-disciplinary project that undertakes coordinated sampling of the major rivers in Great Britain to establish how much carbon from soils is getting into rivers and estuaries and to determine what is happening to it. LOCATE is a multidisciplinary NERC project involving the National Oceanography Centre, the British Geological Survey, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and the Plymouth Marine Laboratory, with assistance from the University of Lancaster, University of Durham, University of Hull, the University of the Highlands and Islands and the Environment Agency.
