We conduct fundamental research into how lakes function and respond to environmental stressors such as climate change, nutrient enrichment and air pollution. We work at the ecosystem scale, on physical, chemical and biological processes (including bacteria, algae, zooplankton and fish).
Our approach is multi-faceted, including the analysis of data from the CEH Cumbrian Lakes monitoring programme and further afield, modelling, and experimentation in order to provide robust advice for lake management.
As well as a number of UK and international universities and research institutes, we work with water companies, regulators, non-departmental government bodies, and charities.
