Our long-term research in the Wye and Usk delivers evidence for the management of freshwaters as well as wider advances in whole systems knowledge.
The data and facilities collated here stem from multiple research projects spanning 40 years, from small student-led projects to large consortium initiatives. Drawing from local to international partnerships, this Wye and Usk Observatory is an opportunity to share knowledge across disciplines and sectors.
Each year the Observatory hosts research projects from undergraduates through to post-doctoral fellows. We started collecting data in the 1980s, which enables historical trend analysis. We are keen to explore new uses of our data and facilities.
