This project is funded by the EC 'BONUS' program in collaboration with the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation (FNU). Main objective of the INFLOW project is to improve our understanding of the natural variability of the Baltic Sea ecosystem with particular reference to ongoing and past changes in both surface (temperature, salinity, sea ice) and deep water (oxygen, salinity) conditions and their timing by means of multi-proxy studies in combination with modelling approaches. The work is carried out in close collaboration with partner institutions in Germany, Finland, Sweden and the other nations around the Baltic. The work at GEUS aims at reconstruct changes in hydrographic conditions (past 6000 years) primarily based on microfossil (dinocyst, foraminifera) and geochemical records from sediment cores taken on a transect from the fully marine Skagerrak to the brackish, central Baltic Sea.
