Generalized scheme of carbon fluxes between carbon containing state variables in the BALTSEM-C model. Illustration: Erik Gustafsson


This development enables several new model applications, such as for example the possibility to estimate how pH in the Baltic Sea responds to future land loads, changing climate, and increasing atmospheric CO2 levels.

Another example is the opportunity to trace terrestrial organic carbon in the system and determine land-ocean-atmosphere connections in terms of carbon cycling.
