Abstract [en]

 Lakes of Europe show a great variability in their characteristics, with boreal lakes at northern latitudes as the most abundant lake type. The variability is a result of large gradients in climate, geological history, land use, and atmospheric deposition, mainly along a north–south axis. Worldwide, the best known lakes are probably Europe's lakes in the Alp region, most likely due to their spectacular surroundings and their long tradition of providing good research facilities with all necessary infrastructure. Lakes of Europe, including very remote lakes, are subjected to multiple stressors, climate change and atmospheric deposition being examples. These stressors can cause water quality problems. One of the most common water quality problems occurring in all European countries have been and still are harmful algal blooms
