The Newby Beck catchment outlet 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). The Newby Beck catchment contains a Mitigation and a Control sub-catchment (c. 2km2) with kiosks that measure water discharge and turbidity. All monitoring kiosks 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. Within the Newby Beck catchment an Automatic Weather Station measures rainfall, air temperature, net radiation, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction; and two separate tipping bucket rain gauges measure rainfall.
