monitoring

Marine Scotland Science (MSS) undertakes a wide range of monitoring covering many aspects of the Scottish marine ecosystem.

Monitoring is undertaken in Scottish Inshore Waters, using networks of volunteers and automatic recording equipment, as well as in Scottish Offshore Waters, using the MSS research vessels MRV Alba na Mara and MRV Scotia.

Marine Scotland Science also participates national monitoring programmes, such as:

  • UK Marine Monitoring and Assessment Strategy (UKMMAS)
  • UK Marine Environmental Change Network (MECN)
  • UK Marine Environmental Data and Information Network (MEDIN)

This group provides published data from monitoring these activities. For many activities, there are national or international standards for how the monitoring is undertaken.

Maximum 7-day rolling mean of maximum temperatures for August 2015 for the rivers Spey, Dee, Tweed and Bladnoch

doi: 
10.7489/1991-1

These data are the maximum value of a 7-day rolling mean of daily maximum temperatures for Scotland River Temperature Monitoring Network (SRTMN) sites in the Bladnoch, Dee (Aberdeenshire), Spey and Tweed catchments, in August 2015. These summary metrics underpin the paper by Jackson et al entitled "Can spatial statistical river temperature models be transferred between catchments?" published in the journal Hydrology and Earth Systems Science.

Data Dictionary

Data were obtained from monitoring sites in four catchments:the Bladnoch, Dee (Aberdeenshire), Spey and Tweed. These catchments are part of the Scotland River Temperature Monitoring Network (SRTMN: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/marine/Salmon-Trout-Coarse/Freshwater/Monitor...), a strategically designed and quality controlled monitoring network. Data were collected at 15 minute intervals throughout August 2015. The maximum temperature was calculated for each day and used to produce a 7-day rolling mean of maximum temperatures. Max_7day_Tw is the maximum value of this 7-day rolling mean.
