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.


Scientists challenged – What do we really need to know about the Baltic Sea?

Nearly 400 Baltic Sea researchers gathered in Aula Magna for the Baltic Sea Science Congress, to share knowledge about the Baltic Sea and unite and prepare for the future. The congress was opened in an innovative way with five important Baltic Sea scientists being questioned by another five environmental journalists.

Policy Brief: Phosphorus in the catchment

A new study shows that almost half of the phosphorus currently entering the Baltic Sea could derive from accumulate phosphorus on land, so called legacy phosphorus. The amount of phosphorus that leaks to the Baltic Sea has decreased over the last 20 years but the future reduction will depend on continued actions to reduce the accumulation of phosphorus on land.
