Resource or Project Abstract

ILLUMINATE demonstrates the utility and benefits of combining investigations of lake ecosystem condition and computer-based modelling of catchments, which are of direct relevance to the implementation of the WFD in Ireland. Focusing on three catchments (Leane, Burrishoole and Mask) ILLUMINATE aimed to establish past reference conditions and determine past and future aquatic ecological responses to combined pressures using palaeolimnological techniques and dynamic computer models. Quantitative sediment reconstructions and hindcast models enabled reference conditions and onset of change to be established. Dynamic modelling of ecological pressures (projected climate, land-use and population changes) highlighted the potential for P increases while in-lake responses indicated increases and earlier development of phytoplankton biomass. The results support the current 'at risk' designations for the majority of the study lakes and the case for considering climate change in tandem with changes arising from planning and policy decisions in the management of RBDs is compelling.
