Lahti is situated on the Salpausselkä ice-marginal formation in Southern Finland. The city stands on the shores of Lake Vesijärvi, which has provided the people of Lahti with livelihood and amenities for generations. Although the lake was polluted in the 20th century, an intensive research and management effort has seen major improvements in water quality in recent decades.
The symposium includes a fieldtrip on the lake, during which local experts will explain how nutrient loading reductions, biomanipulation and aeration pumping have been employed to manage water quality.
The fieldtrip is included in the symposium fee. However, we kindly ask participants to indicate whether they wish to join the fieldtrip during abstract submission and pre-registration.
