SECOS II-3: Processes: SECOS II - Biogeochemical processes across the sediment-water-interface

Based on progress in SECOS I this workpackage is essential to translate sediment habitats into functions. Processes like fauna induced bioirrigation, advective flushing of sediments, storm induced erosion and sediment functional change caused by anoxia were not included into sediment functions so far. They will expand the Baltic Sea Atlas to better present integrated descriptions of, for instance, storage capacity and oxygen demand. Here we will in particular add an estimate of the variability induced by natural and anthropogenic disturbance to the characterisations of sediments.
