UKEOF is the coordinating body across the public sector for the UK's environmental observation community. As such it plays a vital role in improving the coordination of the UK's observational evidence needed to understand and manage the changing natural environment. As a partnership of public sector organisations with an interest in using and providing evidence from environmental observations, UKEOF is unique in bringing together the main organisations involved in the field. Together they generate and manage in situ and remote environmental observations across the UK.

Our Mission: To work collaboratively to maximise the value of the UK's environmental observations.
