Description

The Krycklan Catchment Study (KCS) is one of the most ambitious projects which integrate water quality, hydrology and aquatic ecology in running waters in the boreal region. KCS provide data services and high quality field data to allow state-of-the-art research in hydrological, biogeochemical and ecological processes. KCS aim to do basic science, develop new generations of water management models and provide background information for improved environmental guidelines.
