CLEO database

Last changed: 04 August 2020

To achieve the goals of CLEO related to runoff chemistry from the Swedish forested landscape, a uniquely comprehensive database of water quality together with supporting climate and catchment information has been created.

At the center of this database are 9 well-studied forest catchments where the CLEO water quality modelling effort has been focused. This has resulted in an ensemble of simulations decades back in time and predictions decades into the future.

Furthermore, a database that includes runoff, chemistry, climate, and associated catchment GIS information has been compiled for another 215 larger catchments from national and regional monitoring programs.

The information (observed and modelled) of the 9 reference catchments as well as of the 215 larger streams and rivers are made publicly available below.

Data of the Integrated Monitoring (IM) sites Kindla, Aneboda, and Gårdsjön are officially located at the IM database. The Svartberget data are oficially hosted at the Krycklan Catchment Study (KCS) database.
