The Baltic Sea Environment and Ecology

Finnish Environment Institute


“The development of this new edition of the Baltic Sea presentation package was inspired by the Gulf of Finland Year 2014, in order to contribute to the intensive work on augmenting the scientific knowledge base and awareness of the Baltic Sea. We hope that the Gulf of Finland Year 2014 will be successful and meaningful for the future of the Baltic Sea environment.

The content of the presentation package demonstrates, on one hand, the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the Baltic Sea and, on the other hand, the challenges presented by the Baltic. The last parts of the presentation package demonstrate various ways in which society is already acting, and can in the future continue to act to influence the future of the Baltic Sea to ensure the sustainable use of its environment. At the end, the question is posed to all of us: what can I personally do for the Baltic Sea?”

Editors: Eeva Furman, Mia Pihlajamäki, Pentti Välipakka, Kai Myrberg.
