Current climate information enables marine planning that is sustainable in the long term

Global climate change will affect the seas and the marine ecosystems for a long time to come. Current information about ongoing and future climate change will now be incorporated into Swedish marine planning. SMHI is leading a project in which various stakeholder groups will also be involved in work to create user-friendly information.

What is climate change doing to the Baltic Sea?

Hotter, fresher and more acidification. The Baltic Sea described in three terms, based on the latest research into the Baltic Sea in a changed climate. What does science have to say about the future of the Baltic Sea? And what can we do to influence its development?

Dialogue creates usable base data for decisions

SMHI’s researchers are working with user dialogue to produce base data for decisions that is meaningful for different kinds of decision-makers. The dialogue provides better knowledge of users’ needs. It also shows how users interpret the base data and how it is used in work to climate-adapt society and prepare it for extreme weather events.

Marine monitoring at SMHI

Rosett

SMHI monitors ocean status

The marine environmental monitoring program at SMHI is a versatile operation. We perform a large part of the Swedish marine environmental monitoring where we collect data and information about the ocean status along the marine environment bordering Sweden. We analyze and process collected data and communicate current information on the ocean status to the public, researchers and stakeholders and we also issue warnings.

To produce the best possible quality and access to data, knowledge and competence, SMHI have strong national and international cooperation with other authorities. SMHI has a particularly well-established cooperation within the European Union (EU) since neighboring countries are controlled by the same laws as in Sweden.

Accredited sampling and analyses are performed both shipboard and in SMHIs laboratory in Gothenburg. We perform extensive monthly measurements of, for example, salinity, nutrients, plankton and oxygen both in the Baltic Sea and in the Skagerrak and Kattegat seas. In addition, SMHI has a number of buoys that measure waves, currents, temperature and chlorophyll. Along the coastline SMHI employs a network of sea level measurement stations (tide gauge) within Sweden’s warning system for high- and low sea level conditions. SMHI also conducts satellite monitoring of certain types algal blooms in the Baltic Sea and the Skagerrak and Kattegat seas, ice situations and sea surface temperatures.

Quality assured oceanographic lab

SMHI has an accredited oceanographic laboratory in Gothenburg where we analyze water samples. The laboratory is quality assured according to SWEDAC, ISO 17025.
