Project Details

Description (abstract)

In the project Multidom we try to assess the role of the dissolved organic matter (DOM below) in causing the pollution of the Baltic Sea from an interdisciplinary perspective. Our socio-economic objective is to create better conditions to improve the possibilities to reduce the DOM loading and and thus to improve the state of the Baltic. There are three sub-projects in Multidom: 1) DOM loading in the Baltic Sea and its social and economic impacts, 2) the analysis of the river DOM loading of DOM and risk and decision-making analysis based on probability calculations, 3) environmental history and policy of the Baltic Sea area.
