High elevation meteorological records are sparse in the United Kingdom, due in part to the logistical challenges of setting up and maintaining monitoring stations. These upland regions are also coincident with peatland landscapes, many of which are at the southern limit of temperate peatlands. Given concerns over the long-term stability of these landscapes, which are currently at risk due to shifts in climatic zones, we present a 10-year review of meteorological conditions in an upland peatland catchment in the Peak District, UK, which provides baseline data for assessment of change in this area.
