Regional limnology

The Pyrenees hold a lake district with a few more than one thousand alpine lakes. Lithological, climatic, and altitudinal gradients have an effect on the physics, chemistry and biology of the lakes. Several surveys, carried since 1987 at decadal intervals, have provided a synoptic picture of the variability in the Pyrenean limnology and revealed the major time trends caused by the diverse environmental drivers at a regional scale.
