Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) requires the analysis of the spatial distribution of marine uses and environmental conditions.

Ecological Indicators, Volume 108

The Lithuanian sea space belongs to the smallest sea areas in Europe.

Ocean & Coastal Management Volume 209

The implementation of marine spatial plans as required by the Directive on Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) of the European Union (EU) poses novel demands for the development of decision support tools (DST).

Transaction in GIS

Maritime spatial planning (MSP) needs tools to facilitate discussions and manage spatial data in collaborative workshops that involve actors with various backgrounds and expertise.

This article contributes to the accelerating development of methods for sustainability assessment (SA) to support maritime spatial planning (MSP), by proposing an ecosystem services based framework for SA.

European directives, such as the Water Framework Directive and Marine Strategy Directive, require member states to reach good ecological status in their coastal and inland waters. In the Baltic Sea this goal has not yet been achieved.

Baltic Blue Growth

This report is the summary of key findings from the Baltic Blue Growth project which aims to remove nutrients from the Baltic Sea Region by farming and harvesting blue mussels.


This report illustrates the solutions of the BalticRIM project that brings those in charge of Maritime Cultural Heritage (MCH) and Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) from seven countries around the Baltic Sea, including the Russian Federation, togeth


We report the developments and results of the ECOMAR project, which have taken place 2018-2020 and was funded by THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS.

One of the most serious challenges the Baltic Sea is facing is eutrophication, the enrichment of ecosystems by chemical nutrients.

Environmental Modelling and Software 132

This paper provides a presentation of SEANERGY, an open-source toolbox which aims to supplement cumulative impact assessments (CIA) by identifying synergies and conflicts between maritime uses themselves as well as between those uses and the marin
