The storm ”Malik” had a large impact on the stream

During the weekend the 29-30 of January the storm Malik hit the westcoast of Sweden. Thanks to our networking project ”Wetlands as buffers” where we have water level meters located in 11 streams, we could follow the effect the storm had on the water level in the LIFE-Goodstream stream Trönningeån, hour for hour. The data shows that between 02.00 and 21.30 the 29th of January the water level increased with 1.37 m! This is beacuse the wind presses the water up in the stream channel.
