MoorLIFE monitoring

An extensive monitoring programme was undertaken to determine the success of the conservation works. You can explore the different types of monitoring undertaken during the project by using the links below. 

As well as looking at how well vegetation established on the bare peat, the monitoring also looked at the hydrology and peat erosion/ accumulation rates to see how these changed following the works.
