SMHI oceanographic research unit is involved in many national and international projects to develop and link ocean modeling and observations to core services and to fundamental research questions including historical reconstructions and climate change in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the Arctic regions.
Arctic Climate Predictions: Pathways to Resilient, Sustainable Societies ARCPATH
How can Arctic climate projections be improved on a regional and local scale? That is one of the main topics that the Nordic Centre of Excellence funded project ARCPATH seeks to answer.
Vattenförvaltningen is an internal project at the SMHI aimed at maintaining and developing good services at smhi.vattenweb.se. The vattenweb website supports the management of Swedish water bodies by making measurements and model data available to decision makers and the public. Research topics are sustainable use of water resources, contaminants, and good ecological status.
Vetenskapsrådet Fyrskepp aim to reconstruct and project Baltic Sea climate variability in the period 1850-2100 using long records of recently digitized lightship data and employing a high-resolution regional climate model for attribution studies. Period: 2013-
Vetenskapsrådet Baltic natural oxygenation project will determine effects of natural oxygenation of previously anoxic bottoms of the Baltic proper, and the subsequent return to anoxia, on the capacity of sediments to recycle/sequester biogenic elements.

BONUS BalticAPP: well-being from the Baltic Sea – applications combining natural science and economics
BONUS BalticAPP: well-being from the Baltic Sea – applications combining natural science and economics is a project funded by the Bonus program that aims to project the future evolution of the Baltic …
BONUS ECOSUPPORT study the combined impact of climate change and nutrient loads on the marine ecosystem of the Baltic sea.
BEAM is a research program on ecosystem-based management of the Baltic Sea. It coordinates existing projects and incorporates different disciplines in one research program with the aim to strengthen Baltic Sea research and thus provide a better basis for policy decisions, directives and environmental targets. Research topics include Baltic Sea ecosystems, contaminants, management of natural resources and ecological models for environmental management.
