Shipping contributes to ocean acidification
The potential effect on surface water pH of emissions of SOX and NOX from global ship routes is assessed. The results indicate that regional pH reductions of the same order of magnitude as theExpand

Factors influencing organic carbon recycling and burial in Skagerrak sediments.
Different factors influencing recycling and burial rates of organic carbon (OC) were investigated in the continental margin sediments of the Skagerrak (NE North Sea). Two different areas, one in theExpand

PAH effects on meio- and microbial benthic communities strongly depend on bioavailability.
The effects of anthropogenic pollutants in dissimilar habitats can vary depending on differences in bioavailability. The factors determining bioavailability are not yet fully understood. This studyExpand

Meiofaunal and bacterial community response to diesel additions in a microcosm study.
Effects of low PAH-containing diesel were studied in a 60-day microcosm experiment at PAH concentrations 130, 1300 and 13,000μg/kg sediment. Nutrient fluxes, potential nitrification and meiofaunalExpand

Shipborne nutrient dynamics and impact on the eutrophication in the Baltic Sea.
The Baltic Sea is a severely eutrophicated sea-area where intense shipping as an additional nutrient source is a potential contributor to changes in the ecosystem. The impact of the two mostExpand

The potential future contribution of shipping to acidification of the Baltic Sea
International regulation of the emission of acidic sulphur and nitrogen oxides from commercial shipping has focused on the risks to human health, with little attention paid to the consequences forExpand

Shipping and the environment : Smokestack emissions, scrubbers and unregulated oceanic consequences
While shipping has long been recognised as a very carbon-efficient transport medium, there is an increasing focus on its broader environmental consequences. The International Maritime OrganisationExpand

Analyzing changes in sediment meiofauna communities using the image analysis software ZooImage
We here propose a novel method of automatic classification of higher taxa from benthic meiofaunal communities using the image analysis software ZooImage. Meiofauna was extracted from sediment at fiveExpand

VRAKA—A Probabilistic Risk Assessment Method for Potentially Polluting Shipwrecks
Shipwrecks around the world contain unknown volumes of hazardous substances which, if discharged, could harm the marine environment. Shipwrecks can deteriorate for a number of reasons, includingExpand
