Project

ECOSUPPORT : Advanced modeling tool for scenarios of the Baltic Sea ecosystem to support decision making

Description:

ECOSUPPORT addresses the need for policy relevant information on the combined future impacts of climate change and industrial and agricultural practices in the Baltic Sea catchment on the Baltic Sea ecosystem. The project developed a multi-model system tool to assess the combined effect of climate change and nutrient loads to the Baltic Sea. The main aim is to develop and provide a multi-model system tool to support decision makers. ECOSUPPORT information will be made readily available for all policy makers concerned with a Baltic Sea unaffected by eutrophication and the adaptation to climate change.
