About this book

Features a review of the large-scale processes and features of the Baltic Sea, in terms of both eutrophication and contamination with toxic substances.

This book is highly interdisciplinary and uses a systems approach for analysing and describing the physical, biochemical and ecological processes that govern inputs, distribution and ecological effects of nutrients and toxic substances in the Baltic Sea. The book is certainly an invaluable reference on the large-scale dynamics of this marine ecosystem, but it will also be useful for marine scientists studying the causes behind changes that have occurred in other large marine ecosystems. (International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry)
