WebFOCUS Report
Project description
This project focused on linking hydrologic, biological and biogeochemical (including nutrient inputs and water quality responses) changes with underlying climatological drivers in two geographically distinct but functionally relatively similar shallow systems, Lake Pyhäjärvi in Finland and Lake Taihu in China. The project had a holistic approach including paleolimnological and long-term monitoring data on the aquatic systems and in situ and modelling approaches on internal loading and nutrient dynamics in shallow lakes under different climate change scenarios.
