Abstract

In September 1983 the Royal Society launched a 500000 GBP research programme funded jointly by the Central Electricity Generating Board and the National Coal Board to investigate mechanisms of surface water acidification in Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. The Management Committee of the programme identified palaeolimnology as a key area of research and we were invited to submit an integrated proposal that was aimed not only at tracing acidification history at important sites but also at evaluating alternative hypotheses for lake acidification in each of the three countries. We were also encouraged to use as wide a range of techniques as possible. The programme approved by the Management Committee initially in June 1984 and finally in December 1984 is summarised in the following pages. A number of projects began on October 1st 1984 and all remaining projects are scheduled to begin on April 1st 1985. The programme will be completed by September 1988 when the final results will be presented at an open discussion meeting.
