Lake and catchment nutrient, ecology and hydrology monitoring of Rostherne Mere, Cheshire, UK (2016-2017)

This dataset includes catchment stream inflow and outflow rates, secchi depth, chlorophyll, phytoplankton counts and nutrient concentrations for the lake, inflow, outflow and groundwater spring. The measurements are from a PhD research project at Rostherne Mere in Cheshire. These data were collected to show the relationship between the catchment hydrology and in-lake nutrient loads for assessment of the current catchment nutrient budget. The monitoring study covered a period from January 2016 to January 2017. All data is presented with date, flow rate, nutrient and chlorophyll concentrations and phytoplankton species abundance. The work was carried out as part of a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) funded PhD [grant number NE/L002493/1].
