Ocean acidification research in the Estonian coastal waters
Principal investigator: Liina Pajusalu, liina.pajusalu [ät] ut.ee
Duration of the project: 17.12.2018 – 10.12.2020
Project type: R&D project
Finace program: EIC Environmental program
Budget: 142 054,69 EUR
The aim of this project is to measure different ocean acidification (OA) parameters in the Estonian coastal waters. Best measurement characteristics of carbonate chemistry are analysing to evaluate the status of acidification in the Estonian coastal waters. The second aim of the project is to determine how OA is related to coastal eutrophication. Based on the results of the project, a preliminary assessment of the status of acidification in the Estonian coastal sea will be provided. In addition, OA indicator will be develop and a good environmental status limit will be defined for the indicator.
