Abstract: The regional climate of the Greater Baltic Area is complex and varies at a multitude of scales in space and time. This thesis contributes to increased understanding of climate change and climate variability in this area focusing on four significant research topics. Droughts have a considerable ecological and socio-economic impact. The occurrence of rainfall is strongly controlled by large-scale atmospheric circulation. The observed summer North Atlantic Oscillation (SNAO) was correlated to a gr... more
