I am currently finalizing my PhD thesis
about naturally eutrophic boreal lakes. I'm studying the spatial
distribution of naturally eutrophic lakes in Finland, how eutrophic the lakes
are naturally, what are the geological drivers behind natural eutrophy
and how the lakes have responded to human impact.
