Abstract: Natural variability and anthropogenic factors both contribute to changes in the ocean climate of the Baltic Sea. Observations over the past century indicate that changes in environmental settings and ocean climate have taken place, attracting considerable media attention and building public awareness of climate and environmental issues related to the Baltic Sea. These changes need to be seen in the context of a longer-term perspective to evaluate whether current conditions lie outside the expect... more
