Environmental Information Data Centre (EIDC)

The Environmental Information Data Centre (EIDC) is the UK's national data centre for terrestrial and freshwater sciences.

The EIDC is one of the network of Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) data centres that provide a focal point for its scientific data and information.

The EIDC is hosted by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH), a world-class research organisation focusing on land and freshwater ecosystems and their interaction with the atmosphere. CEH integrates UK-wide observation systems and curiosity driven research, from the smallest scale of genetic diversity to large-scale, whole-Earth systems. We work across disciplines and facilitate academic, public, private and voluntary sector partnerships. CEH’s extensive, long-term monitoring, analysis and modelling deliver UK and global environmental data, providing early warnings of change and management solutions for our land and freshwaters.
