Welcome to Stockholm and the 12th Baltic Sea Science Congress 2019. In the Royal National Park, neighbouring the archipelago, Stockholm University will gather the marine research community for discussions on the last 10 years of Baltic Sea research and how it has adopted new interdisciplinary approaches and scientific disciplines. Policy aspects of the latest research will also be discussed.
This time we seek to provide new insights from the interlinked processes in the catchment and the coastal zone as growing research foci. The congress will present advances in our understanding of biogeochemical cycles in the open Baltic Sea as well as new approaches addressing genomics, population structure and function, evolutionary changes and how climate change and human impact changes the system.
