[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The European Diatom Database (EDDI) is a web-based information system designed
to enhance the application of diatom analysis to problems of surface water
acidification, eutrophication and climate change.

Ninety-six sites are included from a Norwegian data set developed by Birks et
al. (unpublished). Of these, ninety-two samples from lakes in southern and
central Norway have been applied as a training set (ter Braak & Juggins 1993,
Larsen 2000).
