Baltic Sea Science Congress, Stockholm, 19-23 August 2019

After a week full of interesting presentations, Baltic Sea Science Congress 2019 has come to an end. More than 140 speakers have presented their work, and an additional 160 studies have been presented as posters. This has led to many great discussions and several new collaborations. All in the spirit of the congress theme – making connections for the future.
