ABSTRACT: Mitigation of the negative effects of climate change on the environment and society requires planning and decision-making at regional and local levels. This necessitates the downscaling of global climate models to regional levels. The contributions to this CR Special investigate the effects of changing climate on the natural and socio-economic environment of the Baltic region, under the following broad topics: (1) variations in paleo-climate reconstructed through measurements, and the interpretation of climate proxies; (2) modeling of past climate change and future projection; (3) climate–anthroposphere interactions; and (4) climate variability and change and its effects on Baltic Sea coasts.


KEY WORDS: Baltic Sea · Climate change · Hindcast · Future projection · Modeling · Natural environment · Anthroposphere
