Seventh Study Conference on BALTEX

10–14 June 2013 | Borgholm, Öland, Sweden

oeland_borgholmen_baltexBALTEX is a Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) of the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project (CEOP) within the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) of the World Climate Research Programme. From its very beginning, interdisciplinarity and international collaboration have been outstanding aspects for BALTEX. The main focus of BALTEX Phase I (1992–2003) was to explore and model the various mechanisms determining the space and time variability of energy and water budgets of the Baltic Sea drainage basin and the interactions with surrounding regions.

In BALTEX Phase II (2003–2012), the scope was broadened to include research on regional climate change and matter fluxes in a changing environment, while the energy and water cycle has remained the base of the research. The Seventh Study Conference on BALTEX will wrap up 20 years of interdisciplinary BALTEX research in the Baltic Sea basin and will also give perspectives for future research. Major achievements of the past 20 years as well as latest research results will be presented along with prospects and visions for a future regional Earth system research programme for the Baltic Sea basin.
