Marine research at the University ...

Stockholm University is leading in Baltic Sea research, especially in ecosystem research, research on organic contaminants, natural resource management and the use of ecological modeling to support environmental management.

... is carried out at many Departments

The marine research is a part of the University's Leading Research Areas: Climate, Seas and Environment.
