AbstractThe most acidic lakes were situated in the Alps, i.e. Ticino (67% of lakes with pH <6), and Tyrol, Carinthia, and South Tyrol (42%). Lakes in the Pyrenees (19%) and Pirin (18%) were intermediate, whereas the lakes in Aosta had the highest pH and alkalinity (4%). A factor analysis showed four main sources of chemical variability: weathering, marine influence, anthropogenic pollution, and eutrophication. For acid sensitive lakes, weathering of Ca²⁺ was the first cause of variation in the Alps, whereas in the Pyrenees it was marine influence
