This dataset contains concentrations of dissolved organic carbon, dissolved inorganic carbon, nutrients and concentrations of greenhouse gases CO2, CH4 and N2O from nine sites across the River Tay catchment. Water was sampled on a monthly basis between February 2009 and December 2010. The locations of sampling sites were based on existing flow gauging and water sampling sites of the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).,These data were collected as part of a PhD project funded by the CEH Integrating fund. Water and headspace samples were collected from nine sites within the Tay catchment on a monthly basis between 2009 and 2010 by James Harley. Sample analysis was undertaken at CEH Edinburgh, again by James Harley. A detailed description of sample collection methods and analytical measurements can be found in the supporting information document supplied with the data.,
