Contact: Heldrun Feuchtmayr

The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) is a component of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC), and is the UK’s Centre of Excellence for integrated research into terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems, and their interaction with the atmosphere. An integrated science structure allows effective communication of over 300 CEH science staff. The Lake Ecosystems Group is a productive team with extensive expertise on the physics, chemistry, biology and ecology of lake systems, and with a diverse research method portfolio that includes monitoring, experimentation, process and empirical modelling and molecular ecology. CEH hosts the Environmental Information Data Centre (EIDC), the UK national data centre for terrestrial and freshwater sciences. The EIDC provides services across the range of scientific communities and accepts environmental data in re-usable formats for curation, including long-term storage and public dissemination. The EIDC is an issuing agent for DataCite DOIs and has a DOI policy.

Role In Project

Heidrun Feuchtmayr (f, PhD 2004 freshwater, brackish and marine ecology) is a database manager and researcher with 19 years of experience in running mesocosm experiments in different ecosystems. She participated and run climate change mesocosm experiments within three EU projects: EUROLIMPACS, REFRESH and MARS. In her role as database manager for the Lake Ecosystems Group, she is combining her scientific limnological knowledge with managing long-term data as understanding the data is often the key to good quality data. ISI WoS statistics: 28 papers, 627 citations, h-Index:14.

Project role AQUACOSM-plus: Co-leader WP 4.1 Recognising the benefits of open science. Contributor to all WPs. Task-lead 9.27.
