These long-term scenarios (80-100 years) are built on recent developments on applying socio-economic scenarios in climate change research. Alternative Representative Concentration Pathways (e.g. RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5) and Shared Social Economic Pathways (e.g. SSP2 and SSP5) for the Baltic Sea region will be used to scan the range of possible futures and to understand the impacts of these possible futures on the marine ecosystem and the possibility to retain/improve the provision of marine ecosystem services.
Start: April 2015, 3 years.
