The role of Palaeolimnology in implementing the water framework directive in Ireland
(Royal Irish Academy, 2009)
The EU Water Framework Directive has created research opportunities and challenges for water-quality managers and palaeolimnologists alike. Opportunities have arisen through increased attention to water-quality issues, ...
The palaeolimnology of Lough Murree, a brackish lake in The Burren, Ireland
(Royal Irish Academy, 2013)
Lough Murree, a rock/karst barrier lagoon, is superficially isolated from the sea and seasonal variations in lake water level reflect precipitation and groundwater variation. Lake salinity influenced by subsurface saline ...
Integrating observed, inferred and simulated data to illuminate environmental change: a limnological case study
(Royal Irish Academy, 2016)
Effective management of aquatic ecosystems requires knowledge of baseline conditions and pastvariations in stressors and their effects in order to mitigate the impacts of future variability and change. This study utilizes ...
Contrasting pelagic plankton in temperate Irish lakes: the relative contribution of heterotrophic, mixotrophic and autotrophic components, and the effects of extreme rainfall events (Pre-published version)
(Taylor & Francis, 2015)
The mobilisation of energy from allocthonous carbon by heterotrophic bacterioplankton can be proportionally more important than autotrophic production in humic lakes. Moreover, increasing levels of dissolved organic carbon ...
Natural capital: an inventory of Irish lakes
(Geographical Society of Ireland, 2018)
Lakes are important components of our landscape and along with networks of rivers and streams provide a range of important ecosystem services and natural capital. Estimates of lake numbers, particularly small lakes, have ...
Climate history through the holocene at Lochnagar, Scotland
(Royal Irish Academy, 2001)
Status for Irish lake typologies using palaeolimnological methods and techniques (IN-SIGHT)
(Environmental Protection Agency, 2007)
Delivering integrated catchment management through the bottom-up approach: a critical analysis
(Environmental Protection Agency, 2016)
Managing our water is essential to support life and protect our ecosystems. Integrated catchment management= (ICM) is about bringing water issues, people and organisations together at the right scale in order to achieve ...
