The lakes in SITES Water and SITES AquaNet

Six lakes at six different stations are central for SITES AquaNet and SITES Water. The monitoring for SITES Water, including lake and stream sampling, is carried out in five of the stations catchments and therefore covers a gradient in aquatic biogeochemistry, e.g., nutrient concentrations, water color and catchment characteristics. SITES AquaNet offers experimental manipulations in five lakes with varying environmental conditions along a latitudinal gradient.
