Extending the knowledge of the regional Earth system in the Baltic Sea region

Baltic Earth strives to achieve an improved Earth System understanding of the Baltic Sea region as the basis for science-based management in the face of climatic, environmental and human impact in the region. Baltic Earth brings together a broad international research community around core scientific issues identified as fundamental to informing societal efforts to achieve sustainability in the region. These “Grand Challenges” are tackled through joint research efforts, workshops, conferences and capacity building events accompanied by a continuous process of synthesis of the current state of knowledge. Communication with stakeholders and research funders aims to ensure impact and relevance of the research. Baltic Earth targets the atmosphere, land and marine environment of the Baltic Sea, its drainage basin and nearby areas with relevance for the Baltic Sea region. “Background”

Thank you for making the 4th Baltic Earth Conference a success!

Hotel Dom Zdrojowy

From 30 May to 3 June, we had our 4th Baltic Earth Conference at the Hotel Dom Zdrojowy in Jastarnia, Poland. We had intensive and fruitful scientific discussions with new plans for the Baltic Earth network, which will be elaborated in the next two years and will cumulate in an updated Baltic Earth Science Plan. Thank you to all participants, local hosts and helpers!!!

The completion of the Baltic Earth Assessment Reports (BEAR) marks the termination of the first phase, nine years after the launch of Baltic Earth. The BEARs provide a retrospect of Baltic Earth related research, current knowledge and knowledge gaps, and wrap up nine years of Baltic Earth activities.The conference covered the topics of the BEARs.
