Abstract

In May 1987 surface sediment and periphyton samples were collected for diatom analysis from 27 upland lakes in mid- and north Wales (Figure 1). The sites were selected to provide a range of water acidities from circumneutral to strongly acid. The results, together with those collected from other regions in the British Isles, are to be used to produce a UK diatom-water quality data set that will facilitate calibration of sediment core diatom assemblages and reconstruction of past water quality characteristics such as pH (eg. Birks et al. 1990).
