STEPPS is an interdisciplinary, NERC funded research project with personnel based at the School of Biological Sciences, University of Durham, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology - Wallingford, Sheffield Centre for Arctic Ecology, University of Sheffield and Department of Physical Geography, University of Uppsala. 

Through a series of field based measurements and experiments coupled with statistical and physically based modelling STEPPS team members are investigating the effects of changing snow cover on soil biogeochemistry, hydrology. plant phenology and herbivory, trace gas flux and surface energy balance  in a sub-arctic tundra ecosystem.
