Haltwhistle Burn

Welcome to the Haltwhistle Burn research webpage. Newcastle University (School of Engineering and Geosciences) is working in partnership with the Tyne Rivers Trust (TRT) on a PhD project focussed around the Haltwhistle Burn. A ‘total catchment’ approach is proposed in the Haltwhistle Burn Catchment to improve fish populations, water quality, hydromorphology and also reduce flood risk.

Community-Based Monitoring and Modelling for Catchment Management:

The PhD project itself is looking at how the Haltwhistle community can take part in monitoring and modelling the water environment. This is called Citizen Science. Members of the public are co-producing knowledge with catchment scientists to help understand and managment the water environment.

This research site hosts information on the project and act as an information and sharing tool for the community. Use it to find out more about the project, explore maps and historical catchment information, submit your own observations, view real-time monitored data, link to twitter and much more!
