Wellbeing from the Baltic: Applications combining natural science and economics

As part of an interdisciplinary research project we analyze the impact of anthropogenic pressures (eutrophication, climate change, fishing) on the provision of ecosystem services in the Baltic Sea area. A focus will be on the valuation of cultural ecosystem services such as recreation and aesthetics.
