Abstract
In the UK, as in many countries, acid deposition is decreasing but water temperatures are rising and rainfall patterns changing. Disentangling the relative roles of acid deposition and climate change in driving changes in water quality and freshwater biodiversity in the UK is hence now a priority for research. In this poster we describe the use of the Upland Waters Monitoring Network (UWMN), originally designed to track acidification recovery, to identify how climate change might affect upland freshwater ecosystems in the UK. Issues include changes to the thermal regime of lakes and streams, changes in biodiversity and geographical range of taxa, changes in the acidity of surface waters mediated by changes in precipitation and changes in pollutant fluxes related to the accelerated re-mobilisation of legacy pollutants from catchment soils
