  • Ocean model assessment concerning hydrographic conditions, mean circulation, current velocities and volume transports of the entire Baltic Sea and through transects
  • Comparison of model simulations with observations using validation datasets, mooring and ADCP measurements
  • Investigation of the variability and sensitivity of the overturning circulation in the Baltic Sea
  • Coordinated experiments aiming at an assessment of the performance of different regional climate models in the Baltic Sea within the Baltic Sea Model Intercomparison Project (BMIP; focus on hydrographic conditions, mean and overturning circulation, selected processes like salt water inflows, mixed layer depth, ice formation and upwelling events)
  • Analysis of ensemble simulations (nutrient loads and pools, hypoxic area)
