European Diatom Database - UK Meres TP Dataset
Entry ID: uk_nc_eddi_SCM

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.

This dataset includes 33 lakes from the Cheshire and Shropshire meres region of the English Midlands. They are all relatively small, shallow, lowland waterbodies. All lakes are alkaline and ... View entire text
