Centre for Ecology & Hydrology

A research institute located on the Edinburgh Technopole (the former Bush Estate), 2 miles (3 km) north northeast of Penicuik and 7 miles (11 km) south of Edinburgh, the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) is a world-leading centre of excellence for integrated research in terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems and their interaction with the atmosphere. Headquartered in Wallingford (Oxfordshire, England), CEH is part of the UK Government's Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), with stations in Lancaster and Bangor, as well as Edinburgh. Research carried out in Edinburgh focuses on the science underpinning air pollution, climate change and the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and natural resources.

Originally the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, which was established here in 1969 occupying an elegant building by Morris and Steedman, a merger in 2000 with three other institutes brought CEH into being.
