The Allt a' Mharcaidh catchment was selected in 1984 by staff at the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute as an ideal site to undertake environmental research. It has since been used for research projects by staff from other organisations including Scottish Natural Heritage, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, and the University College of London. Over the years a number of different European research projects have been based in the Allt a' Mharcaidh including; Surface Water Acidification Programme (SWAP), ECOMONT, DYNAMO, RECOVER:2010 GLORIA and EUROLIMPACS. The catchment is part of several international monitoring networks including SCANNET, GLORIA, ICP-Waters and ICP-Integrated Monitoring. At a national level, valuable long term datasets have been collated at the Allt a' Mharcaidh as part of the DEFRA funded, UK Acid Waters Monitoring Network, UKAWMN (1988 - present). Stream flow rate and water quality measurements of the Mharcaidh burn, along with freshwater invertebrate records are made as part of the freshwater monitoring, coordinated by SEPA. The site is a freshwater as well as a terrestrial ECN site.
