European Diatom Database-Danish TP Dataset
Entry ID: uk_nc_eddi_DK

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 28 relatively small, shallow lakes from Denmark. All sites are lowland, alkaline and nutrient-rich. Surface sediment samples were collected during 1991 and diatoms were ... View entire text
