BALTIC-C - Building predictive capability regarding the Baltic Sea organic/inorganic carbon and oxygen systems
The aim of Baltic-C is to provide a tool with which to support the management of the Baltic Sea. Baltic-C will develop and apply a new integrated ecosystem model framework based on the cycling of organic carbon (C org) and carbon dioxide (CO²) in the Baltic Sea water and drainage basin, taking into account fluxes across the atmosphere and sediment interfaces.

Baltic-C objectives are:

  • to achieve significant progress in marine ecosystem modelling by aligning biomass production and oxygen depletion with CO² dynamics.
  • to provide the first comprehensive integrated assessment of the potential effects of climate change, eutrophication, increasing atmospheric CO² concentration, and acidic deposition on carbon cycling in the Baltic Sea and its catchment area.

More information is available at the official Baltic-C home page.
