Is there so much phosphorous coming from Baltic Sea sediments that taking action on land is useless? 

The internal load of phosphorous (P) is a hot topic for debate. Some say that the amount of P in the Baltic Sea sediments is so large that we can stop all other actions reducing losses from agriculture and sewage. Others argue that internal load is a result of, and not a cause of, eutrophication.

In this seminar, you will get an over view of topics relevant for decision makers and learn more about the latest scientific research. The format is the following: short, introductory presentations by scientists followed by a Q & A session where decision makers will ask scientists questions in order to get guidance needed to make the right policy decisions.

Speakers or panel-participants from the Baltic Sea Centre:

  • Bo Gustafsson, Director of Baltic Nest Insitute and Scientist at Baltic Eye
  • Michelle McCrackin, Research Scientist at Baltic Eye
  • Alf Norkko, Professor, Tvärminne Zoological Station, Helsinki University
