Sea-ice in the Baltic Sea in present and future climates is investigated. The Rossby Centre Regional Atmosphere-Ocean model was used to perform a set of 30year-long time slice experiments. For each of the two driving global models HadAM3H and ECHAM4/OPYC3, one control run (1961–1990) and two scenario runs (2071–2100) based upon the SRES A2 and B2 emission scenarios were conducted. The future sea-ice volume in the Baltic Sea is reduced by 83% on average. The Bothnian Sea, large areas of the Gulf… 
Oceanographic regional climate projections for the Baltic Sea until 2100
Abstract. The Baltic Sea, located in northern Europe, is a semi-enclosed, shallow and tideless sea with seasonal sea-ice cover in its northern sub-basins. Its long water residence time contributes to
Numerical Simulations of Sea Ice Conditions in the Baltic Sea for 2010–2016 Winters Using the 3D CEMBS Model
Abstract Sea ice conditions in the Baltic Sea during six latest winters – 2010/2011 to 2015/2016 are analysed using coupled ice–ocean numerical model 3D CEMBS (3D Coupled Ecosystem Model of the
Uncertainties in Projections of the Baltic Sea Ecosystem Driven by an Ensemble of Global Climate Models
Abstract. Many coastal seas worldwide are affected by human impacts such as eutrophication, causing, inter alia, oxygen depletion and extensive areas of hypoxia. Depending on the region, global
Coupled regional Earth system modeling in the Baltic Sea region
Abstract. Nonlinear responses to externally forced climate change are known to dampen or amplify the local climate impact due to complex cross-compartmental feedback loops in the Earth system. These
Natural variability is a large source of uncertainty in future projections of hypoxia in the Baltic Sea
Coastal seas worldwide suffer from increasing human impact. One of the most severe environmental threats is excessive nutrient pollution from land, which causes oxygen depletion and harmful algal
Human impacts and their interactions in the Baltic Sea region
Abstract. Coastal environments, in particular heavily populated semi-enclosed marginal seas and coasts like the Baltic Sea region, are stongly affected by human activities. A multitude of human
Changes in age and maturity of anadromous whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus) in the northern Baltic Sea from 1998 to 2014
TLDR
The maturation of anadromous whitefish was analysed from samples taken from commercial coastal fishing in 1998–2014 in the Gulf of Bothnia and the proportion of mature fish at age four increased in both the north and south.

The Baltic Sea ice season in changing climate
TLDR
The coupled ice-ocean modeled 30 year's ice statistics centered on 2050 gives a 30-65 cm range for the annual maximum ice thickness in the Bay of Bothnia, which would mean that some ice would still be formed in 2100 at Kemi.
Numerical investigations of future ice conditions in the Baltic Sea.
TLDR
Overall, the simulated changes of quantities such as ice extent and ice thickness, as well as their interannual variations are relatively similar in both models, which increases the reliability of future projections of ice conditions in the Baltic Sea.
