Natural Hazarads and Extreme Events in the Baltic Sea Region

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

One of the grand challenges of Baltic Earth, the new Earth System Science programme for the Baltic Sea region and successor to BALTEX, focuses on natural hazards and extreme events in the Baltic Sea region. Many natural hazards - storms, flooding, droughts, blizzards – are of hydrometeorological origin and can potentially be better understood and forecasted. The most devastating natural hazards are often caused by a combination of several factors.
