Welcome to the MANTEL ITN - a Marie  Sklodowska-Curie European Joint Doctorate Innovative Training Network

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) is training 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 providing training in state-of-the art technology, data analysis and modelling, and linking to the water management sector.
