Wednesday April 27th, 2005

The final report of the Recovery of Acidified Waters in the UK (RAW-UK) project is now available for download from the Freshwater Umbrella Web Site. The RAW-UK project was funded by Defra and the devolved agencies under the Freshwater Umbrella programme. The project began in June 2001 and was completed in June 2004.

The key aims of the RAW-UK research programme were the development of methods and models for identifying chemical and biologial targets for the recovery of acidified surface waters and predicting timescales, degree and spatial extent of recovery under current and future acid deposition loads. The programme also included a pilot project for the monitoring of metal deposition and cycling in an upland catchment ecosystem.

The report is available as a pdf download from the link below.
