MARISPLAN : MARISPLAN - Effects of climate change on Marine Spatial Planning

Type of Entry: Project
Website: http://www.aka.fi/en-GB/A/Research-programmes/Ongoing/Climate_change-ficca/
Duration: 01/2011 - 12/2014

The project will investigate, with the aid of hydrodynamic, ecological, watershed, and economic models, how climate change will influence the ecosystem of the Baltic Sea and the human activities on the sea and in the watershed area. We will assess how the society can adapt its policies and uses of the marine ecosystem in a changing climate, and create GIS-based tools for marine spatial planning. Three case study areas, Helsinki City sea area, the Archipelago Sea and the Quark-Bothnian Bay area, will be more closely investigated.
