The sea is often in focus as a resource for society and its people, for recreation and for transportation. A sustainable environment and climate development are prerequisites for a sustainable use of ocean and its resources. SMHI provides the individual, government, researchers and the international community with data, forecasts and scenarios, and current information.

The coastal zone can reduce eutrophication of the Baltic Sea

The coastal zone is the area where the land meets the sea. A number of nutrients that are carried by the water from the land remain in the coastal zone. Research has now shown that the coastal zone can reduce the eutrophication in the open seas.

Increased water inflow affects the shallow coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean

The ongoing climate change is expected to have major impacts on the Arctic region. Scientists have observed greater inflows of warmer sea water from the Atlantic Ocean to the Arctic Ocean. This is likely to extend the ice-free period and affect the exchange of carbon dioxide and methane between the sea and the atmosphere.
