Welcome to MANTEL - a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action European Joint Doctorate Innovative Training Network (EJD ITN)
Environmental perturbations to lakes and reservoirs occur largely in the form of episodic climatic events. These range from relatively short mixing events to storms and heat waves. A common characteristic is that their effect is generally longer lasting than the duration of the event itself. MANTEL (Management of Climatic Extreme Events in Lakes & Reservoirs for the Protection of Ecosystem Services) will train a cohort of Early Stage Researchers to investigate the effects on water quality of the most extreme events, and of more subtle events of lower magnitude, while at the same time receiving training in state-of-the art technology, data analysis and modelling, and linking to the water management sector. This ITN will commence in January 2017.
Management of Climatic Extreme Events in Lakes & Reservoirs for the Protection of Ecosystem Services
Climatic extremes, in particular storms and heat waves, are now becoming more frequent, a trend that has been linked to directional climate change and is projected to continue. Understanding the impact of these events is important because of the negative effects they can have on the ecosystem se
