Centre for Coastal Ecosystem
and Climate Research

The Centre for Coastal Ecosystem and Climate Change Research (CoastClim) evaluates the links between coastal biodiversity, carbon cycling, and climate feedbacks. The data will serve as a foundation of a new decision-support system to improve the use and management of coastal ecosystems with the potential for climate change mitigation.

The development of CoastClim is part of a strategic partnership between the University of Helsinki (UH) and Stockholm University (SU) that focuses on strengthening collaborative marine ecosystem and climate change research between universities.

The effort brings together the major marine and atmospheric units at UH; i.e. Tvärminne Zoological Station (TZS) at the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences and the Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR) at the Faculty of Science, and the Baltic Sea Centre and Bolin Centre for Climate Research at SU. CoastClim offers a framework that will provide state-of-the-art infrastructure and new integrative science to deliver an in-depth understanding of the combined biodiversity and climate problem in coastal ecosystems.

Marine Biodiversity

Characterize benthic and pelagic biodiversity descriptors that link to carbon cycling

Marine Biogeochemistry

Explore carbon dynamics across the sediment – water column – atmosphere interfaces

Atmospheric Sciences

Partition the contribution of greenhouse gases and aerosols from land and sea in the coastal zone

Decision Support

Bridge the gap between science and policy

Research activities

The multidisciplinary research team of CoastClim brings together a unique combination of expertise in marine ecology, biogeochemistry, atmospheric sciences, and ecosystem modelling. A dedicated group of science communicators will use the collected data to engage with society’s decision-making bodies to deliver advice on policy, management, and regulation.
