Assessment and modelling Baltic ecosystem response
Period: 1/1/09 - 12/31/11
The general aim of AMBER is the implementation and application of the Ecosystem Approach to Management (EAM) to the Baltic Sea in the face of two closely intertwined environmental threats, eutrophication and climate change. Focus is on the coastal ecosystem (CE) because it supports most of the 85 ...
Baltic-C
Period: 1/1/08 - 12/31/11
The project addresses several of the main themes of Bonus and has a high relevance for the Call. Baltic-C will for the first time constrain the organic and inorganic carbon budgets of the Baltic Sea addressing C fluxes from land, the exchange fluxes with the atmosphere and the sediments as well as ...
Biological lenses using gene prints
Period: 1/1/14 - 12/31/17
Prokaryotic microbes are principal drivers of carbon and nutrient biogeochemistry and account for a major fraction of pelagic biomass and productivity in the Baltic Sea. Still, these organisms are neither included among the indicators of environmental status currently in use nor considered as ...
Building predictive capability regarding the Baltic Sea organic/inorganic carbon and oxygen systems
Period: 1/1/08 - 9/30/11
The project addresses several of the main themes of Bonus and has a high relevance for the Call. Baltic‐C will for the first time construct the organic and inorganic carbon budgets of the Baltic Sea addressing C fluxes from land, the exchange fluxes with the atmosphere and the sediments as well as ...
Knowledge-based Sustainable Management for Europe's Seas
Period: 4/1/09 - 3/31/13
Europe’s four regional seas (Baltic, Black, Mediterranean and NE Atlantic) have suffered severe environmental degradation due to human pressure. Existing measures to manage pressures have proven inadequate and the EC has responded by proposing a new policy (Maritime Strategy Blue Book) and ...
Managing Baltic nutrients in relation to cyanobacterial blooms: what should we aim for?
Period: 1/1/09 - 12/31/12
Cyanobacterial summer blooms are a main problem of Baltic Sea eutrophication, and a common argument against reducing its nitrogen load. Dense surface accumulations can cover the sea surface, make bathing impossible and harm coastal recreation and tourism. Blooms are toxic and increase Baltic ...
Mass balance of perfluorinated alkyl substances in the Baltic Sea
Period: 1/1/08 - 12/31/10
Perfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) have been produced for more than 50 years and are today ubiquitous in the environment. Ionic PFAS are surfactants and tend to accumulate in the water phase. Due to their unique physico-chemical properties, theories on PFAS’s transport pathways and fate in the ...
Reduction of Baltic Sea Nutrient Inputs and Cost Allocation within the Baltic Sea Catchment
Period: 1/1/09 - 12/31/11
RECOCA will provide scientific outputs that facilitate the implementation of ecosystem-based environmental management of the Baltic Sea, since most management decisions combating eutrophication have to be carried out in the catchment area of the Baltic Sea. To manage remedial actions involving 85 ...
Regime Shifts in the Baltic Sea Ecosystem-Modelling Complex Adaptive Ecosystems and Governance Implications
Period: 1/1/10 - 12/31/13
The first objective of this study is to analyse time series from the Baltic Sea addressing river loads of water and nutrients, biogeochemical conditions of the Baltic Sea, its food web structure and fish stocks in order to develop and test regime shift indicators and describe revealed ...
