Phytoplankton Bloom in the Baltic Sea

Cyanobacteria in the Baltic Sea 2015On August 11, 2015, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured this false-color view of what appears to be a large bloom of cyanobacteria swirling in the Baltic Sea south of Gotland.

Cyanobacteria (or sometimes blue-green algae) are an ancient type of marine bacteria that, like other phytoplankton, capture and store solar energy through photosynthesis. Some are toxic to humans and animals. Moreover, large blooms can cause an oxygen-depleted dead zone where other organisms cannot survive.

SAIL 2015 Has Ended

SAIL 2015 the poop deck onboard STS Fryderyk ChopinThis year's SAIL course started August 4 in Aalborg, Denmark has ended August 18th in Swinouisjie, Poland. 30 students from 14 nations and teachers from 5 nations surrounding The Baltic Sea annually came together for a summer course called SAIL (Sustainability Applied in International Learning) organised by BUP (Baltic University Programme). For two intense weeks the students and teachers live and act together around the clock also as the crew of the Polish tall ship Fryderyk Chopin.

We have learned and shared knowledge about social, economical and ecological sustainability. The Baltic Sea’s health is at stake and our future depends on our ability to solve the current and future situations and problems. Hot topics for practice and discussions has been how well we are able to join forces, on the boat as well as in our societies, to switch towards a more sustainable lifestyle, agriculture, forestry, fishery, governance, energy dependance both as professionals and as private persons in governance and as consumers.

Applications for 2016 will be announced at in due time.

  2. to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of their own research and projects on energy and environmental technologies, showing successful initiatives and good practice;
  3. to discuss methodological approaches and projects which aim to integrate the topics of energy and environmental technologies, as well sustainable development more closely;
  4. to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.

Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today.
