Abstract

An outline of both the scientific and management needs facing the future water quality issues of Scotland is discussed. The scientific needs are considered in terms of monitoring to increase the understanding of hydrochemical processes, issues of scaling, and the need for improved modelling under changing environmental processes. In terms of the management needs, the requirements highlighted relate to improving the ecological quality of Scottish rivers and the implementation of integrated river basin management plans.
