European Diatom Database-Spanish Mountain Lake Dataset
Entry ID: uk_nc_eddi_alps

[ 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.

The Pyrenees diatom-water chemistry dataset comprises surface sediment diatom
samples and water-chemistry data from 98(?) lakes. The chemical data are
published in Catalan et al. (1993) and a 28 lake sub-set of these data were
used in the ALPE training set (see above). The full diatom/water-chemistry
training set, however, remains unpublished. Diatom counts were made by Joan
Garcia.
