Abstract

One of the main aims of the Open Air Laboratories (OPAL) project is to develop a greater understanding of the state of the natural environment and its biodiversity especially in the most impoverished parts of England. To this end, the project aims to increase national monitoring, providing new data on a range of sites in locations across the country; provide more information on disadvantaged areas and polluted environments and raise awareness of ecosystem health and how individual actions affect this. As part of the OPAL National Water Centre’s activities our aim is to set up a monitoring programme at a lake in each of the nine regions of England (Figure 1 and 2). This monitoring programme involves quarterly measurements over 4-5 years (up to the summer 2012) supplemented by other less frequent monitoring and a few ‘one-off’ sampling activities, mainly in the first year of the project. This report describes the field and laboratory protocols for the sampling and analytical procedures undertaken as part of the OPAL water projects.
