Development of an improved environmental monitoring in the Baltic Sea

Researchers from SMHI participate in the BONUS FUMARI project. The project will evaluate environmental monitoring in the Baltic Sea with regard to international and European legislation, directives and policies. The aim of BONUS FUMARI is to propose improvements in the monitoring system that may support a sustainable management of the Baltic Sea marine environment.

Baltic Sea leads the way for the world’s oceans

Warming, acidification, eutrophication and anoxic bottoms are some of the current and expected future challenges to face the world’s oceans. An international research team is now launching the Baltic Sea region as a model to predict and overcome future changes in the world’s coastal regions.

Marine monitoring at SMHI

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.
