    The sea bottom near cities is often damaged by harmful substances introduced through human activity. The same environments also often suffer from eutrophication. A research project is being carried out in Töölö Bay to ascertain how a method previously used in upgrading soils could affect contaminated sea sediments and the eutrophication of the bay.

    The planning of coastal spatial management enables account to be taken of the effects of land-sea activities on coastal nature and local business activities.

  • Significant blue-green algae blooms possible in Finnish marine areas during 2017 summer 2017-06-01
    The risk for vast blue-green algae blooms in the Gulf of Finland is greater than during previous years. The exceptional nutritional conditions are caused partially by major Baltic inflows from the North Sea in 2014 and 2016, which allowed the phosphorous deepwater to reach the Gulf of Finland. In addition, the lack of winter ice and the windy winter mixed the water layers and brought nutrition to the surface layer of the Gulf of Finland.
