Nuclear geophysics for cleaner European coasts
Natural radionuclides emitting characteristic gamma radiation are present in all materials in nature. Depending on their concentrations in sediments, nuclear geophysicians can determine the material included in terms of its origin, its grain-size, and sometimes, its history. M...

The results from the EULIT project (Effects of Eutrophicated seawater on rocky shore ecosystems studied in large littoral mesocosms) may be applied in the assessment of emissions from mariculture activities and to assess the carrying capacity for nutrients in coastal ecosystem...

The green alga Enteromorpha intestinalis is a cosmopolitan species that causes green tides in many coastal areas and is used as an indicator species for eutrophication in the Baltic Sea area. We report on five polymorphic microsatellite markers developed from enriched genomic...

We investigated the patterns of macroalgal distribution in the Kattegat-Baltic region. Salinity played a significant role, but the influence of dispersal barriers was also significant. Furthermore, we found a strong numerical reduction of non-dominant species rather than domin...

Ceramium tenuicorne (Kütz.) Wærn (including C. gobii Waern) is a common red alga in the Skagerrak-Baltic Sea region. A Polysiphonia-type of life history and asexual reproduction by paraspores, previously demonstrated in cultures for this species, have been confirmed. In additi...

The Baltic Sea provides a unique model system for studying genetic effects of postglacial colonization and ecological differentiation, because all marine organism must have immigrated after the opening of the Danish Straits 8000 years ago and responded to the development of th...

Widely distributed species may often be divided into cryptic level taxonomic entities, for example temperature and/or salinity ecotypes. This also applies to the reproduction of Acinetospora crinita in which the many types of reproductive patterns are related to specific strai...

Microsatellites are regions (loci) within an organism's genome that display a high degree of variability and therefore can be used to identify population substructure. In some cases, PCR primers developed to identify and quantify microsatellite loci in one species can be used ...

An advanced general Ocean Turbulence Model (GOTM) was developed, which allows simulations of turbulence at the state of the art. It includes turbulence closures schemes of different complexity, up to so-called second order closure schemes. The model is available to the scient...

The response characteristics of microthermistors used in limnic and oceanographic applications was investigated. A new response function was developed, which describes the speed dependence of the response time correct. Application of the new response function improves the det...
