Environmental Assessment

We have central role in the monitoring of inland surface waters in Sweden. Our strength is the combination of research and environmental assessment.

Lakes and watercourses

As part of our ongoing environmental assesment, we have a central role in the monitoring of lakes and watercourses in Sweden. We are also data hosts for hydrochemical and biological data from lakes and watercourses, as tasked by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management.

Integrated monitoring

The monitoring is focused on obtaining relaible time series showing processes in a limitied number of sites, covering gradients of deposition and climate. Large-scale effects on ecosystems are also studied.
