Climate-driven change in a Baltic Sea summer microplanktonic community – desalination play a more important role than ocean acidification

Scenario modeling suggests that the Baltic Sea, one of the largest brackish-water bodies in the world, could expect increased precipitation (decreased salinity) and increased concentration of atmospheric CO2 over the next 100 years. These changes are expected to affect the microplanktonic food web, and thereby nutrient and carbon cycling, in a complex and possibly synergistic […]
