The Pow Beck Catchment Outlet (10.5 km2) kiosk records water discharge, turbidity, pH, electrical conductivity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll-a, water temperature (YSI multi-parameter sonde); total phosphorus, total reactive phosphorus, nitrate-nitrogen and ammonium (Hach Lange Nitratax and Phosphax Sigma analyser). Monitoring kiosks also contain ISCO automatic samplers periodically triggered during storm events to capture hydrochemical parameters of storm water at high resolution. Monthly grab sample data (laboratory analysed) are also recorded. Further information regarding monitoring equipment is available in the supporting documentation.
