We are rebuilding OceanWeb – sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you!

A job of rebuilding most of the oceanographic services at smhi.se has started and OceanWeb is one of these. At the moment some services exist only in Swedish but this will soon be changed. We hope that the new services in the end will provide more and clearer information in a better technical environment accessible also via smart phones and tablets.

User survey

We are starting up a maintenance job with OceanWeb and are interested to know what you think of the site today and why you visit it.

WELCOME TO OCEANWEB

OceanWeb is a web application that has been developed at SMHI for the visualization of ocean observations and forecasts for the sea areas around Sweden.

By clicking on Sea levels and waves in the menu you will find observations and forecasts of sea levels and waves at specific points in and around the Baltic Sea. Choosing Forecasts will give you maps of forecasts for wave height, currents, winds and temperature/ice. Under Observations you find different in-situ observations.

Sensible planning can result in sustainable growth in and around the Gulf of Bothnia

Sustainable growth can only be achieved if the use of marine areas is planned sensibly, bringing about synergies where different activities benefit each other. This is the key idea behind a new research project to support growth in the maritime sector in and around the Gulf of Bothnia.

Conference on harmful algal blooms and climate change

Climate change is impacting the marine environment. The future trend may include increasing harmful algal blooms. SMHI, in cooperation with several international institutes, will arrange a conference on harmful algal blooms and climate change in Gothenburg, May 19-22 2015.

Coastal Radar - Scandinavian cooperation in the Skagerrak

SMHI is installing a high frequency coastal radar system at two sites along the coast of Bohus -Måseskär and Väderöarna. The radar system will measure surface currents in the Skagerrak and will also be used to discover or locate vessels.

Unusual stratification in the Skagerrak

During the last expedition an unusual temperature stratification was observed in the Skagerrak. Water temperatures of 15-17 degrees were found down to 100 meters depth. Normally these high temperatures are found down to about 40 meters depth.

The status of the Baltic Sea was thoroughly monitored in the Finnish-Swedish collaboration

R/V Aranda monitored the entire Baltic Sea: poor oxygen condition continues, amount of phosphorus risen in the Sea of Bothnia and the Baltic Proper.

The bad oxygen conditions in the Baltic Sea continue

The serious oxygen conditions that have affected the Baltic Sea during the 2000s continue. The oxygen survey performed during autumn 2013 show that 15% of the bottom areas are dead due to total absence of oxygen and about 30% suffer from acute oxygen deficiency.

A new research programme to achieve an improved understanding of the Earth system for the Baltic Sea region

A new international and interdisciplinary research programme, Baltic Earth, is launched. The aim of Baltic Earth is to achieve an improved understanding of the Earth system for the Baltic Sea region, focusing on physical and biogeochemical processes which interact in the atmosphere, in the sea including sea ice, and on land. Human interactions with the environment are recognized as an important part of the regional Earth system.
