New Baltic Earth Publications

This page summarizes recent peer-reviewed Baltic Earth publications. A „Baltic Earth publication“ shall fulfill at least one of the following criteria:  

1) It describes results of a Baltic Earth project and Baltic Earth is explicitly referred to in the title, abstract, introduction or summary of the publication.

2) The publication contributes to at least one of the current Baltic Earth Grand Challenges, and the authors agree that their publication is listed on the Baltic Earth website. 

Due to copyright issues, an unrestricted access to the full artice is not always possible via this webpage. In most cases, links to digital libraries are given, which may request financial compensation for reading or download of the entire article.

You are also encouraged to visit the BALTEX/Baltic Earth Online Publication Library for a comprehensive overview on BALTEX and Baltic Earth related publications.
