Focus on the marine environment

Research, communication and infrastructure

At Stockholm University, successful marine research and education has been conducted for over five decades. World leading research about the Baltic Sea, as well as high-level science about other marine areas such as the tropical seas and the artic regions, originates from Stockholm University.

Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre's mission is to strengthen and illuminate this significant marine activity that involves over ten different Departments at the University. We are a combination of experts and communicators who collaborate with a wide network of marine scientists to improve the knowledge about the Baltic Sea and help society handle its marine environmental problems.

A south Atlantic secret - expedition to Ilha da Trindade

Linda Eggertsen from DEEP is probably the first Swedish researcher at the remote Brazilian island Ilha da Trindade. Her expedition is monitoring the fish and bentic community around the island, 1100 km from the Brazilian coast.

Electra returns from successful SWE-FIN research cruise

During Electras 2nd multi-disciplinary research trip in the Finnish archipelago, a range of environmental questions were investigated. One of the projects involved exploring the carbon cycling in the sea using state-of-the-art-systems.

Fish habitats degraded by recreational boating

In a new scientific article, researchers show that small boat marinas have a clear impact on the vegetation on the seabed. The study also shows that this vegetation is very important for recruitment of several coastal fish species, including perch and pike.

Dr Chris Cvitanovics forskning visar att Baltic Eyes arbete har påverkat både politik och praxis, de egna medarbetarna och Stockholms universitet i stort.

Baltic Eye evaluated in new study

The Baltic Eye Project has been evaluated in an international study. The results show that the project has achieved impacts on a range of levels.
