Baltic Sea Centre–Bolin Centre lunch-lunch workshop

Dear Bolin Centre Scientists

The Baltic Sea Centre–Bolin Centre workshop next week has been relocated to Frescati due to unfortunate circumstances. 

As it is a much more convenient location for the usually busy scientist, you may be interested to attend, and registration is open until 10.30 tomorrow.

Please do the following

Send me an email (karin.jonsell[at] if would like to participate in this workshop with information about 
• Title of 10 min talk
  o If you would like to have dinner on Thursday 28/1
  o If you would like to eat lunch on Friday 29/1
  Any dietary needs
• Deadline Friday 22 January at 10:30 = TOMORROW
• Prepare a 10 min talk


The Baltic Sea Centre’s major aim is to highlight and strengthen the marine research and education available at the Stockholm University and the Bolin Centre for Climate Research is addressing climate change issues on a global to regional scale. The idea of a meeting between the two Centers is to elaborate on common research questions such as: How will climate change and changes in human lifestyles affect the Baltic Sea environment, ecosystems and resources; What can we learn about climate and Earth system processes in general from the natural laboratory that is the Baltic Sea?

Stockholm University will get a new research vessel during summer 2016 equipped with high-end research equipment for oceanographic (biological, chemical, physical) and geophysical research. This research vessel constitutes a new research platform for scientists allowing for in-shore and off-shore research cruises and the Bolin Centre researchers are prominent future users. Thus, a further discussion issue during the meeting will be how we can make maximum use of it. Could the new research vessel in combination with the Askö field station develop into a marine and atmospheric observatory?
