Our unique, long-term, national-scale data underpin environmental research, resource management and policy development. Our policy is to make as many of these data as possible freely available under an Open Government Licence.

NB: Power cut at Lancaster, 21 June 2017. Access to some of our web services, including the Environmental Information Portal and Environmental Information Data Centre, have been affected by a power cut in the Lancaster area. We hope to get our services up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
