Abstract: This thesis comprises of model estimates of the water and heat budgets, re-estimating of the budget of deep-water mixing energy, model studies of generation mechanisms for internal waves, sea ice dynamics and finally sea ice monitoring. Common site for all the studies are the Baltic Sea. A Baltic Sea model was used as a tool for synthesizing available data to be able to analyze the Baltic Sea water and heat balances. The accuracy in the long-term water and heat balances was quantified, while... more
