About this book

Presents a comprehensive blueprint for managing a sea. Focused on the Baltic Sea, it employs a range of methods and techniques, including nutrient budgets and simulation models, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), economic valuation and policy analysis, to arrive at an assessment of causes and consequences of pollution in the sea and the management of its resources.


Land use, population and nutrient loads; wetlands as nutrient sinks; cost effective nutrient reductions to the Baltic Sea; impact of changed nutrient loads on the Baltic Sea; the benefits of a less eutrophicated Baltic Sea; costing and international public good - the case of the Baltic Sea; winners and losers from Baltic Sea nitrogen reductions; general equilibrium effects of implementing markets for emission permits nationally versus regionally.
