EU study finds climate change threatens Baltic Sea ecosystem

Published 04 May 2011      
EU-funded researchers have found that the sea surface temperature of the Baltic Sea was warmer in the past and the oxygen depletion was stronger than what current figures show.

The INFLOW project, 1 of 16 BONUS+ ('Multilateral call for research projects within the Joint Baltic Sea Research Programme') projects, is developing a model for natural variability in marine ecosystems that will fuel our understanding of how the changes will affect the Baltic Sea in the long run. BONUS+ is jointly funded by national programmes of the Baltic countries to the tune of EUR 22 million, of which EUR 7.27 million is provided via a grant under the ERA-NET Plus scheme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
