Reuters- Russia's oil pipeline monopoly Transneft said on Thursday it plans to nearly triple exports of ultra low sulphur diesel (ULSD) from the Baltic Sea port
Sulphur and iron accumulation has once again been found in wood samples from old shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea. This time the samples are from the merchant vessel Ghost wreck and the warships Sword and the Crown. Wood samples from the ships have been analysed by a group of scientists.
The studies concentrated on 2 diazotrophic cyanobacteria species, Nodularia spumigena and Aphanizomenon sp.. The dissertation includes diurnal observations, laboratory and field studies. The experiments aimed to observe variations concerning day/night rhythms and anthropogenic induced changes of pCO2 levels. Show More Summary
Reuters - Russian state oil company Rosneft awarded its semiannual April-September jumbo Urals crude tender for delyvery from the Baltic Sea ports to Shell, Total and Eni, traders said on Tuesday.
Some 52 feet below the surface of the Baltic Sea sits what the media is calling "Sweden's Atlantis"—though that is just a bit of an overstatement. While it's not a lost island, or even a lost village, it's a site that holds "one-of-a-kind" 11,000-year-old relics. Project head Björn...
In the Baltic Sea, two cod stocks evolve independently. The young fish of two economically important flatfish species, flounder and plaice, live within limited space, possibly due to the different salinity within this inland sea. Scientists...Show More Summary
Bruce Arthur, a loyal MR reader, writes to me: I grew up in a Polish immigrant neighborhood in Chicago, where I was raised on a diet high in seafood. My mother was raised close to the Baltic Sea and we weekly went to the local grocery store and bought a lot of salmon, halibut, sea […]
To assess the influence of dissolved organic matter (DOM) on the acid–base system of the Baltic Sea, 19 stations along the salinity gradient from Mecklenburg Bight to the Bothnian Bay were sampled in November 2011 for total alkalinity (AT), total inorganic carbon concentration (CT), partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2), and pH. Based on these data, […]
Hamburger Hafen & Logistik AG, which handles about three of four containers at Hamburg’s port, saw rising volume last year as feeder traffic to the Baltic Sea and Russia grew amid a shrinking northern European market.
ByVasu Vijayraghavan: Latvia is the 18th country to make up the European Union.

"One-of-a-kind" Stone Age artefacts left by Swedish nomads 11,000 years ago have been discovered by divers in the Baltic Sea, prompting some to claim that Sweden's Atlantis had been found. A diver exams an 11,000-year old tree trunkShow More Summary
In the summer of 1999, pianist Tommy Flanagan appeared at the Jazz Baltica Festival—held on the grounds of the Salzau Palace near Kiel, Germany, and a few miles from the Baltic Sea. With Flanagan were Lewis Nash on drums and...
Past, present, and possible future changes in the Baltic Sea acid–base and oxygen balances were studied using different numerical experiments and a catchment–sea model system in several scenarios including business as usual, medium scenario, and the Baltic Sea Action Plan. Show More Summary
Survival, behavior, hemolymph pH, osmolality, and chloride ion concentration as well the total metabolic rate (heat dissipation rate) of the isopod Saduria entomon from the brackish Baltic Sea were investigated after exposure to carbon...Show More Summary
he Baltic Exchange's main sea freight index, which tracks rates for ships carrying dry bulk commodities, rose on Wednesday, marking its first gain this year, driven by higher capesize rates.
A mesocosm experiment was conducted to investigate the impact of rising fCO2 on the build-up and decline of organic matter during coastal phytoplankton blooms. Five mesocosms (?38 m³ each) were deployed in the Baltic Sea during spring (2009) and enriched with CO2 to yield a gradient of 355–862 µatm. Mesocosms were nutrient fertilized initially to […]
Warshaw-based studio WHCA won the Baltic Sea Park Competition in Estonia by designing a complex of floating pavilions situated around a square. The floating Forum of Art is meant to enable integration and interaction between all Baltic countries and their
Epsilonproteobacteria have been found globally distributed in marine anoxic/sulfidic areas mediating relevant transformations within the sulfur and nitrogen cycles. In the Baltic Sea redox zones, chemoautotrophic epsilonproteobacteria mainly belong to the Sulfurimonas gotlandica GD17 cluster for which recently a representative strain, S. Show More Summary
Cassidian’s new radar for the German Navy’s F125 class frigates has demonstrated its particular reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities during tests in the North Sea and Baltic Sea and during factory acceptance tests. In two test series of several weeks, the […]
