Restoration of the Baltic Sea - Limitations and Possibilities

08.10.2009
Today the 8th ScanBalt Forum and 3rd Biomaterials Day opened in Kalmar, Sweden.

The objective of ScanBalt Forum is to gather scientist, managers, stakeholders and government officials to disseminate experiences and discuss the possibilities and limitations of active restoration approaches of the Baltic Sea. This is a step towards establishing the Baltic Sea Region as a globally competitive green valley and health region.

The responsible organizer of the Forum, Prof. Peter Brodelius, Kalmar University says "The Baltic Sea is our common heritage and what defines our region. Life sciences are providing the answers on how to protect and restore it and how to exploit it as a common resource in a sustainable manner".

One of the organisers of 3rd Biomaterials days Prof. Heimo Ylänen, Tampere University of Technology adds "Collaboration around the Baltic Sea is a tool to gather strength on a global scale. Research on biomaterials and development of biomaterial products has the potential to be a stronghold for the region if we work together".

Prof. Hans-Robert Metelmann, Chairman of ScanBalt concludes "ScanBalt BioRegion is the leading example of the Baltic Sea Region at work. We have now moved from the political visions and to the practical implementation. This makes a difference in terms of improved environment, better quality of life for the citizens and enhanced prosperity. ScanBalt BioRegion is an effective tool for the recently released EU Baltic Sea Region strategy".

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
