Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Regional climate change for the Baltic Sea is discussed first, with particular emphasis on recent findings for sea level (mean and extrema) and storm intensity. More thought is being given to the general problem of land (primarily arable) degradation due to extended landward penetration of sea water due to the accelerated sea level rise (ASLR). Long-term coastline change is analysed on the basis of routine topographic and bathymetric data collected. Assessment of coast vulnerability to ASLR has been summarized to identify the potential hazards. Various protection techniques are proposed to avoid loss of land
