Learning outcomes

Students learn about the Baltic Sea hydrography, oceanography, biology, ecology and environmental questions; and the current research on it - especially in the central study fields of Archipelago Research Institute at the Island of Seili. Specifically, the course concentrates on the aquatic environmental research and ecology in the Archipelago Sea and the adjacent runoff area, including the flora and fauna below the surface. Students learn the role of interaction between biotic and abiotic factors in shaping the aquatic ecosystems.


The course will be held at the Archipelago research Institute and its surroundings. It consists of lectures, field excursions, field and laboratory exercises and a seminar where the results of student exercises will be reported.
