Sea Level Change Affecting the Spatial Development of the Baltic Sea Region (2006)

Description

This publication presents the final results of the INTERREG IIIB Baltic Sea Region project “Sea Level Change Affecting the Spatial Development of the Baltic Sea Region – SEAREG”. In the scope of the project, existing global climate models from the IPCC were first downscaled to the Baltic Sea Region and selected case study areas, and then combined with topographical data. The resulting scenario maps of potential coastlines changes and flood prone areas were then analysed together with various relevant actors to discuss potential impacts on the territory, referring also to the socio economic system and development. The results of this process were structured in a set of tools, the Decision Support Frame, to better bridge the gap between climate change models and spatial planning by integrated scenario interpretation.
