Land-Sea Interactions over the last 6000 years (LSI6K): Impact of land-use change on terrestrial carbon pools in the Baltic Sea catchment, and their effect on aquatic ecosystems

Project: Research

Research areas and keywords

UKÄ subject classification

  • Geosciences, Multidisciplinary


  • Landscape reconstruction, Ecosystem modelling, Baltic Sea


The aim of this project is to test the hypothesis that climate and human induced land cover changes during the late Holocene have led to increased Carbon leaching from the catchment, and thereby affected the coastal ecosystems of the Baltic Sea.
To answer these questions, we will apply a unique combination of state-of-the-art palaeoecological methods and dynamic ecosystem modelling. The project will provide an important link between terrestrial and marine environments in the Carbon cycle.
