On a pathway to resilient and sustainable societies

The research project ARCPATH (Arctic Climate Predictions: Pathways to Resilient, Sustainable Societies) has been completed after four years. The aim of the project has been to investigate pathways to resilient and sustainable societies by developing climate projections in the Arctic and to interpret the effects of climate change on local communities in Iceland, Greenland and northern Norway in connection with ongoing socio-economic changes. The project was funded by NordForsk.

New publication shows latest scientific knowledge on climate change in the Baltic Sea

To provide a better understanding of the effects of climate change in the Baltic Sea, Baltic Earth and HELCOM have recently published the first Baltic Sea Climate Change Fact Sheet. The publication compiles the latest available science in the region on climate change and its impact.

More algal blooms and new species of phytoplankton in Swedish seas

The ongoing phenomenon of climate change is having an impact on marine ecosystems. Researchers from SMHI can show that there is now a greater occurrence of certain types of algal blooms than 40 years ago, and that new species of phytoplankton have become established. This has consequences not only for the marine environment, but also for tourism and food production.
