Views or opinions expressed.   The pollution controls in Poland are actually a lot tighter than the controls here in the US. The tolerable levels of mercury, lead, and cadmium are much lower than they are in the US. Foods are not even allowed to contain preservatives. 80% of the foods in american stores are not allowed in Polish Grocery stores, especially produce.

The Baltic Sea Impact Index describes the potential cumulative effect of human activities on the environment in different parts of the Baltic Sea. The southwestern Baltic Sea is subject to the highest cumulative impacts. RECOGNIZING that according to the document "Assessment of the Effects of Pollution on the Natural Resources of the Baltic Sea, " there are strong indications that organochlorine substances and among them especially 1980 book are primarily responsible for the serious decrease in the reproductive rate of ringed seals (Pusa hispida), harbour seals (Phoca vitulina) and grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) of the Baltic Sea Area.

The Baltic sea has a long history of human usage and unfortunatley pollution. This northern sea is sometimes refered to as one of the most polluted seas because oh its history.

The baltic sea has more to offer than just its problems. The sea also has many uses such. The environmental health of the Baltic Sea is not sufficient, and does not meet the objectives of the Baltic Sea Action Plan.

However, this report clearly shows that the measures taken so far, such as cutting nutrient inputs and pollution and working to protect biodiversity, have made a difference to the state of the Baltic Sea environment. Each number has also a distinctive title.

Serious attention is pay for better understanding role and consequences of the man in environmental.

Water stratification and pollution have destroyed the Baltic Sea's biodiversity. Logging and agriculture have led to the deforestation of much of Europe's original forests. Northern Europe's location in the high latitudes has made it more resistant to climate change than most other places in the world.

Baltic Sea has an acceptable environmental status at present. The integrated assessment of the ‘ecosystem health’ has revealed that only very few coastal areas along the Gulf of Bothnia can be considered healthy.

To reach the commonly agreed aim of a healthy Baltic Sea in at the latest, the Baltic Sea Action Plan urgently. Each number has also a distinctive title. Eg.: No. 5B has title: Assessment of the effects of pollution on the natural resources of the Baltic Sea, (pt.

The monitoring programme of harmful substances in selected species in the Baltic Sea was started in In the present study, three-year averages of Zn, Cu, Cd and Pb in cod liver (Hg in cod muscle) and herring muscle are by:   The detailed environmental survey of the coastal zone of the Kaliningrad Region northern coast was carried out.

The pollutants distribution in the silty clay fraction and calculation of ecological indexes allowed the evaluation of distribution of potentially harmful elements (PHEs).

To reduce pollution and improve the situation in the Baltic Sea, the surrounding countries organized the Helsinki Convention, which came into force on The Helsinki Commission (HELCOM) founded in acts as coordinator and is responsible for the enforcement of the Baltic monitoring program and international research by: in the fi sh stock in the Baltic Sea.

There are natural variations due to ecological reasons that have to be understood over a long time scale. During the last century however, eutrophication and pollution have infl uenced the stocks. The role of cities in this pollution of the Baltic Sea has been examined in an international project led byFile Size: 1MB.

This is a list of international environmental agreements. Most of the following agreements are legally binding for countries that have formally ratified them. Some, such as the Kyoto Protocol, differentiate between types of countries and each nation's respective responsibilities under the l hundred international environmental agreements exist but most link only a limited.

However, the Natural Resources Institute Finland has reported (mostly based on catch-landing statistics) that the consumptions of Baltic herring and salmon were and kg/a per person, respectively.

This implies that people tend to overestimate their long-term average consumption in general and for Baltic salmon in : Jouni T. Tuomisto, Arja Asikainen, Päivi Meriläinen, Päivi Haapasaari. Water stratification and pollution have destroyed the Baltic Sea's biodiversity.

ship traffic. The Baltic Sea is generally imagined in people’s minds as part of a pristine northern Europe, but sadly it is actually one of the most polluted seas in the world. Its condition is a challenge for the nine littoral states and their populations – 90 million people -- living in its catchment area.

Increased nutrient and sediment loading can affect the functioning and biodiversity of coastal ecosystems. Lacking long-term monitoring data, paleolimnological techniques enable the estimation of habitat and diversity change through time.

Using these methods we assessed the effects of eutrophication on diatom community structure and species richness over the past ca. years in Cited by: This interdisciplinary book is primarily directed at students and lecturers of the environmental disciplines to provide an overview of the possible impacts of climate change on the Baltic Sea.

It is also intended to serve as a background reference for scientists and policy makers, both for the Baltic Sea Brand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Presently, many of the Baltic Sea nations are working to rectify their misdeeds, although, many of which are still largely contributing to the world's level of pollution.

Finland has consistently ranked in the top 5 for countries that emit the most greenhouse gases per capita. Introduction. The Baltic Sea including the Kattegat (Fig. 1) is a large, almost non-tidal North European inland sea of km 2, with a mean depth of a mere 54 is divided into a series of basins, mostly separated by shallow sounds or sills.

Surface salinity gradually declines inwards, from 18–26 in the Kattegat to 2–4 in the innermost Bothnian Bay (using the unit-free Practical Cited by: In order to assess the effects of ship emissions in and around the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, regional model calculations with the EMEP air pollution model have been made on a 1/4 lon-gitude 1/8 latitude resolution, using ship emissions in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea that are based on.

Marine pollution occurs when harmful effects result from the entry into the ocean of chemicals, particles, industrial, agricultural and residential waste, noise, or the spread of invasive percent of marine pollution comes from land. Air pollution is also a contributing factor by carrying off pesticides or dirt into the ocean.

Land and air pollution have proven to be harmful to. The aims of Co-operative Monitoring in the Baltic Marine Environment (COMBINE) are to identify and quantify the effects of anthropogenic discharges/activities in the Baltic Sea in the context of the natural variations in the system, and to identify and quantify the changes in the environment as a result of regulatory actions.

New research vessel to help reduce Baltic Sea pollution to research in the Baltic Sea. The vessel will give researchers across an array of disciplines a better view of pollution in the Baltic Sea. Integrated assessment of TBT pollution in the Baltic Sea.

Tributyltin (TBT) origins mainly from the use as antifouling agent in ship paints. Relatively high TBT levels in the Kattegat and Baltic Sea due to intensive ship traffic. Declining TBT levels in the recent years because of EU ban in IMO ban entered into force in BEAST.The Curonian Lagoon is the largest lagoon of the Baltic Sea, relating to the most highly productive water bodies of Europe.

This lagoon may be characterized as hypertrophic water body with "poor" water quality. In s eutrophication and intensity of algal blooms increased. Warming climate.Thus, in addition to specific nature conservation and natural resources –related actions many other actions focusing on e.g.

pollution control are essential in order to reach favourable status of Baltic Sea biodiversity (HELCOM a): It is evident that reduced eutrophication will decrease algal.
