Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre focuses on scientific issues that are important for understanding and managing the Baltic Sea and its catchment area.

Our researchers form an interdisciplinary team whose research questions and projects have a strong focus on applications and supporting decision making and administrative management processes. We focus on the enivornmental challenges of eutrophication, hazarduous substances, commersial fisheries, coastal exploitation and climate change.

We apply a source-to-sea approach, since many environmental challenges in the Baltic Sea are caused by human activities in the cathment area, and the strong gradients and stratified character of the inland sea are significant for the transport of nutrients and hazardous substances from rivers to coastal areas and the open sea.
