European Diatom Database-Kola Peninsula pH Dataset
Entry ID: uk_nc_eddi_kola

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 Kola diatom-pH training set comprises 24 small oligotrophic lakes located
along a vegetation gradient in the central and western parts of the Kola

Quality The diatom optima generated by the KOLA model are generally in
agreement with the optima derived by other models (e.g. ALPE) although
KOLA diatom optima are generally higher compared to the ALPE and SWAP.
