The latest Monthly Hydrological Summary for the UK, for September 2007, was published last week. The new summary analyses the moderating effect of the early Autumn dry spell on the hydrological consequences of this summer’s unprecedented wet weather.
The Monthly Hydrological Summaries assess contemporary hydrological conditions and water resource status across the UK. The Summaries are published as part of the National Hydrological Monitoring Programme, operated jointly by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and the British Geological Survey. The Programme was set up in 1988 and relies on the active co-operation of the Environment Agency, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Rivers Agency (Northern Ireland) and the Met Office.
Copies of the monthly summaries are available from the NHMP section of the NRFA website.
