Ocean climate assessments
BALTEX Assessment of Climate Change for the Baltic Sea Basin (BACC). The purpose of the BACC assessment is to provide the scientific community with an assessment of ongoing climate change in the Baltic Sea basin. An important element is the comparison with the historical past (until about 1800) to provide a framework for the severity and unusualness of the change. Also change in relevant environmental systems, due to climate change, shall be assessed- such as hydrological change, ecosystems, and ocean waves. Chair person: Prof. Hans von Storch.
The results from the BACC/HELCOM assessment will be presented 22 and 23 May 2006 in Göteborg at the Conference Centre Wallenberg. Detailed information will be available on the BALTEX/BACC website (http://dvsun3.gkss.de/BACC/).
