More algal blooms and new species of phytoplankton in Swedish seas

The ongoing phenomenon of climate change is having an impact on marine ecosystems. Researchers from SMHI can show that there is now a greater occurrence of certain types of algal blooms than 40 years ago, and that new species of phytoplankton have become established. This has consequences not only for the marine environment, but also for tourism and food production.

Research provides new knowledge for local climate adaptation measures

A changed climate with more extreme weather involves a heightened risk of natural hazards if society is not prepared for the new conditions. How do municipalities and other stakeholders use new research in their planning? SMHI and SEI have examined how research can be designed to meet users’ needs.
