PIRLA II (Paleoecological Investigation of Recent Lake Acidification) is the first paleolimnological study designed to make statistically based regional population estimates of lake acidification. It is also the first project in which only tops and bottoms of cores are analyzed so that a large number of lakes can be studied. The PIRLA II project consists of several components that are designed to address specific questions and are integrally related to several other projects. PIRLA II builds on the foundation laid by PIRLA I; together they make up one of the largest paleolimnological projects in terms of number of lakes investigated (over 120 lakes analyzed stratigraphically). PIRLA has made and will continue to make important contributions to the understanding of lake acidification and to the development of the field of paleolimnology. (Copyright (c) 1990 E.
