Centre for Ecology & Hydrology Press Office

CEH's Press Office manages media relations for all aspects of CEH research and corporate activities. The Press Office often issues Press Releases to journalists from a wide range of media outlets, announcing findings from new research or giving details of significant events at CEH which are of wider interest. Please email the Media Relations Manager if you wish to receive advance information from us.

The Press Office can put journalists in touch with relevant scientists, technical and support staff for background information on any of our research. Journalists are welcome to visit our research sites for briefing – contact the Press Office to make arrangements.

We have also issued Media briefings. These are short notes which advise specialist journalists and stakeholders of publications and events that are not the subject of a full press release. Media briefings include alerts for the monthly Hydrological Summary and also notification of peer-reviewed papers of interest to different groups such as the water industry and conservation sector. Please email the Media Relations Manager if you would like to be added to the distribution list for specific types of Media briefing.
