03.08.2018 BONUS MICROPOLL publishes training material for plastic monitoring

An educational video (link below) of different cost effective and user friendly methods applied for marine litter sampling on beaches around the Baltic Sea was developed in BONUS MICROPOLL (partner Klaipeda University). The Rake-method covers the whole width of the beach between the waterline and the vegetation, cliff etc. while the goal of the Tidal method is to survey beach wrack that washed up along the beach after stormy events. Additionally, the 100m OSPAR method is presented, a naked eye method investigating macro-litter (> 25 mm) on the surface of the beach.

11.06.2018 21:38New COCOA publication! (Sources & Sinks: A Tale of Coastal Biogeochemistry - BONUS COCOA) Dana Hellemann

A new study from BONUS COCOA is out:

Ines Bartl (Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemuende) and co-workers wanted to know whether river plume and bottom boundary layer in the coastal zone are potential hotspots for nitrification, due to their favorable characteristics. Nitrification is a key process in the coastal nitrogen cycle: the produced nitrate can either be substrate for primary production whereby nitrogen stays in the coastal system, or for denitrification whereby nitrogen is removed from the coastal system.

They found that neither river plume nor BBL of the Vistula Estuary in the southern Baltic Sea are hotspots for nitrification. Instead, short term changes such as sediment re-suspension during a storm event or oxygenation of anoxic water can significantly enhance nitrification.
