Builds a scientifically strong case for using the “CO2 glasses” as an efficient approach to monitoring the ecological state of the Baltic Sea: the new book by Bernd Schneider und Jens Müller (Photo: IOW / K. Beck)

Bernd Schneider and Jens Müller from IOW recently published a book on the biogeochemistry of the Baltic Sea. What is special is its novel perspective: The marine chemists use investigations into the marine CO2 cycle to obtain comprehensive and highly detailed analyses of marine biogeochemical processes. This new concept strikes new paths towards an efficient ecological monitoring of the sea. Amongst others, their research is based on a unique set of CO2 measurements, which span almost 15 years and were performed in high spatial and temporal resolution by an automated system aboard a cargo ship.
