Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

The Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) is a world-class research organisation for integrated research in terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems and their interaction with the atmosphere.

Working with researchers, policy-makers, industry and society, CEH delivers solutions to complex environmental challenges. CEH excels in cross-disciplinary science, building on national capability in terms of long-term data sets, modelling capabilities and monitoring infrastructure.

They offer leadership in Environmental Informatics, including running the Environmental Information Data Centre, thus curating important and substantive datasets on behalf of the environmental communities.
