Enhancing Water Quality

Enhancing water quality investigates these issues from a catchment perspective in which we integrate and link evidence from both the physical environment with human and ecological systems. It is constructed around four interacting modules based upon key challenges for both policy and society, (see 0.7MB pdf leaflet).

The research theme is being tackled by teams of environmental, social and economic scientists from The Macaulay Institute and the Scottish Agricultural College.
