BONUS+ project in spotlight:


Towards smart use of currents in environmentally safer management of the Baltic Sea maritime industry

By studying surface currents in the Baltic Sea, an international research team BALTICWAY has developed a new method aiming to determine how shipping as well as offshore and coastal engineering activities can be made environmentally safer. This research project of BONUS, the joint Baltic Sea research and development programme, identifies areas where marine activities are better avoided because, in case of a spill, dangerous substances are likely to be washed from these areas to the most vulnerable areas of the Baltic Sea.
