BALTEX is now Baltic Earth. A new website is in preparation.
For a first view on future topics of Baltic Earth, see here...



BALTEX (the Baltic Sea Experiment) is a Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) within the Global Energy and Water Exchanges Project (GEWEX) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).

The research focus of BALTEX Phase I (1993-2002) was primarily on the hydrological cycle and the exchange of energy between the atmosphere and the surface of the Earth, as they control and regulate the climate in a fundamental manner. BALTEX Phase II (2003-2012) has extended the scope of research to regional climate change, water management and biogeochemical cycles and transport processes in the regional Earth system. The study region of BALTEX is the Baltic Sea and its hydrological drainage basin, which constitutes a unique European water basin, creating specific demands on models and scientific concepts.
