Managing Multiple Stressors in the Baltic Sea

The project “Managing Multiple Stressors in the Baltic Sea”, is a Strong Research Environment funded by the Swedish Research Council for the Environment (FORMAS). We have assembled a diverse group from different departments at Lund University to combine paleo-based approaches, ecological approaches, terrestrial and aquatic biogeochemistry, and modeling to address problems from the past, the present and the future. Our goal is to provide the multi-disciplinary expertise needed for the sustainable management of the Baltic Sea.

Historical and present conditions

We have focused the work to three different coastal regions, Karlskrona archipelago, Gåsfjärden south of Västervik, and Umeå archipelago and we use the sediment records from lakes and the coastal areas as environmental archives.
