Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, Bangor
CEH's Bangor research site in north-west Wales is close to the Snowdonia National Park and Anglesey. It is based in the Environment Centre Wales (ECW), an environmentally-friendly building funded by means of a partnership between the Natural Environment Research Council and Bangor University.
Much of the research carried out at Bangor is on the impacts of air pollution, climate change and land use on ecosystem services, with a particular focus on the following: acidification and eutrophication, carbon, catchment science, coastal research, critical Loads, ecosystem science and ozone.
