Northern Watershed Ecosystem Response to Climate Change (North-Watch) Workshop III: Hydroecological Responses to Climate Change in Northern Catchments; Aviemore, United Kingdom, 29 August to 2 September 2010; North-Watch is an interdisciplinary intersite comparison project funded by the Leverhulme Trust, United Kingdom, and run by the Northern Rivers Institute, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, United Kingdom. The overall aim of the North-Watch project is to facilitate an intercatchment comparison study of high-latitude catchments that will yield a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and regional understanding of the recent effects of climatic change and provide a stronger scientific basis for predicting what further changes are likely. Examining a range of sites across a climatic transect in the northern zone will give a much stronger regional perspective on the responses to climatic change than individual studies alone. The project is analyzing long-term data from experimental catchments including sensitive boreal, sub-Arctic, and sub-Alpine environments ranging from the Yukon and northern Sweden to the Scottish Cairngorms to assess the integrated physical, chemical, and biological response to climatic change.
